Guyana’s President David Granger has said that the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition is bigger than any “party and individual politicians” and urged members to work hard to create a better life for all citizens.
During a meeting with coalition Members of Parliament on Wednesday at the Ministry of the Presidency, the head of state used the opportunity to reiterate his commitment to ensuring that LGEs are held every three years as constitutionally required, to ensure that the people of Guyana are actively involved in the affairs of the country.
The President said he was confident that the coalition is capable of delivering a better quality of governance to the people of Guyana. He reminded MPs that Government is a month away from presenting the 2016 Budget and called on the Members of Parliament to continue to engage in a process of national consultation so that the needs of the people can be adequately addressed.
The Head of State noted that for the coalition to work, each member must work hard for the next five years and beyond. The six-party coalition will be contesting the upcoming Local Government Elections (LGEs) as a single unit.
