[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the governing People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee has rejected the proposal by Leader of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Khemraj Ramjattan for the establishment of a pro – democracy alliance; stating that it is a “force ripe proposal” and that the “AFC is a force ripe Party.”
Rohee told a news conference this morning, Monday, December 08 that the AFC is seeking to replace Opposition Leader, David Granger with the proposal.
“They [AFC] are seeking to just big up themselves; I think he’s trying to replace Mr. Granger as the Leader of the Opposition and the APNU better watch out for the AFC because the APNU might very well find themselves being replaced by the AFC,” the General Secretary told Reporters at Freedom House, Robb Street Georgetown.
Ramjattan at the Party’s National Conference on Saturday last had indicated the Party’s willingness to join forces with the members of the PPP and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) to lead a pro- democracy alliance.
Boasting of the AFC’s ability and leadership to offer Guyana a brighter future, Ramjattan said the Party firmly believes every citizen, group and political party that has something wholesome to offer to the efforts of a renewed Guyana must find a way to corporate and deliver to the people, a government of national unity.
