[www.inewsguyana.com] – The issue of reforms being conducted for several different levels of government will be addressed by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) administration should it be re-elected to serve five additional years in government adding to its 23 years in power.
This is according to President Donald Ramotar who is hoping for a re-election when the Guyanese electorate goes to the polls on Monday May 11.
Ramotar in a press statement on Thursday May 07, hinted at new faces in both cabinet and regional government.
He said, “based on our hundreds of meetings around the country, we recognize that the competence and integrity of the PPP/C government must be maintained. My new administration will have changes at every level of governance for Cabinet, Regional Government and the Neighbourhood Democratic Council. This will be done to improve the level of government services and management of the entire country.”
He noted that those persons, who have been committed and served with distinction at the various levels of government services, will be retained.
“The PPPC’s commitment has always been to ensure that there are improved government functions to all citizens, and to allow for greater accountability and transparency. The PPP/C will continue to operationalize modern and equitable governance approaches in the areas of governing fairly, justly and with respect for the rights of citizens,” said Ramotar.
Only recently, the President fired his Health Minister, Dr Bheri Ramsaran, who publicly insulted and degraded a women’s rights activist, while his Minister of Human Services and Social Security, Jennifer Webster resigned in April.
