[www.inewsguyana.com] – APNU+AFC Presidential Candidate David Granger has accused the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) of failing to adhere to the Code of Conduct for General and Regional Elections that was developed by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) and signed by the political parties contesting the 2015 national elections.

Granger, shortly after the Code of Conduct was signed, pointed out a clause in the code which stipulates that political Parties  should not resort to the use of state resources for campaigning noting that this practice is rampant in the PPP/C.

Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Roger Luncheon had admitted that recent campaign trips to North America by members of the government and the governing Party were all paid for by tax payers’ dollars.

Several government Ministers joined former President Bharrat Jagdeo and PPP/C Prime Ministerial Candidate Elisabeth Harper on fundraising trips to the US and Canada for the PPP’s election campaign.

The trips cost taxpayers over $2.6 million although the events during the trips were all political events for the PPP.

“Can you imagine Mr Rohee signing this…I don’t know how Mr Rohee in due conscience could sign this…the PPP has already broken the code,” Granger lamented.

The Presidential hopeful made it clear that the APNU+AFC campaigners will “continue to occupy the moral high ground” in the few days remaining before General and Regional Elections.

Meanwhile, GECOM Chairman, Dr Steve Surujbally said the signing should be regarded as the “red letter day” pointing out that “we must recognize today as an occasion of political history…a day which reflects a reinforcement of the desire to reflect political maturity.”

According to him, the code of conduct heralds the process in which Guyanese can expect to see political differences cast aside and ad hominen attacks being left behind.

  1. those in the media as well as the international community are not that gullible naive and stupid to believe that the ppp are not involved in spreading hatred and tension among the guyanese people as its ship is fast sinking.

    from the very inception the uk and the united states involvement in guyana taught them that for political expediency the ppp attacked and brutalized it own people and pinned the blame on the afro-guyanese and this atrocity is occurring in corners of guyana during this election to stir strife once again. the international community is too mature and too wise to get involved with the ppp wutlisness.

    the ppp and all government supporters are suffering from deep persecutory delusion and only clinical treatment will correct that.
