The People’s Progressive Party [PPP] congress commenced with a commitment “never to deviate” from the core of their being, and that is a party for the working class.
Chairman of the proceedings, Irfaan Ali said, “It is here we will invigorate our fighting spirits and collectively charter the way forward”.
He told the delegates that they must resolve to guard against threats to Guyana’s democracy and development, adding that the party will defeat all forces that seek to destroy the PPP.
Noting that the congress is being held at Port Mourant, the birth and final resting place of its founder, the PPP Ali says re-commits itself to the Jagans’ struggles, ideas, ideals and philosophy.
The congress continues with messages from the GAWU, PYO, WPO, GRPA and the main address by President Donald Ramotar. [Radha Motielall]
