People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) supporters in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) are placing their confidence in the leadership of Dr Irfaan Ali and his running mate Brigadier (ret’d) Mark Phillips.
They are confident that the duo would deliver a victory on March 02 when the nation head to the polls for the General and Regional Elections.
Thousands are making their way to the Albion Community Centre Ground, Berbice to listen to the Party’s presidential candidate present his vision for the development of Guyana.

Additionally, when asked about the Lists of Candidates recently submitted to the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), the supporters all welcomed the fresh faces as well as dubbing the lists as one of the most ‘youthful’ and ‘diverse’.

“I am happy with how the party is campaigning and I travelled here just to hear them tell us why we should vote for them. I already made up my mind and I am ready for elections,” she said.
Zameer Ali said that for the past five years the people of Berbice have been suffering at the hands of the APNU/AFC administration.
“We voting them out. They have to go and we need responsible people here,” he declared.
