At a press conference, Leader of the APNU, David Granger noted that much has been achieved since APNU’s formation three years ago to the benefit of the Guyanese people even though there has been much back and forth between Government and the Opposition in the 10th Parliament.
Further, Granger believes its support base continues to grow while support for the “PPP/C dwindles” and cited the recent National elections where the Opposition gained the majority in the House.
He also stated that despite its parliamentary majority, no effort was spared to engage the PPP/C Administration, to improve governance; however, this continues to be refused by the administration, he said.
“The Partnership’s objective, from the outset, has always been to enhance governmental accountability and to accelerate national development.”
Granger committed that APNU will continue to work towards creating a stable society.
“The Party’s vision is clear, our mission is certain, APNU’s task will be to fulfill its obligation to the nation both through the legislative process in the National Assembly and in the country at large.”
Meanwhile, Vice chairman of APNU, Dr. Rupert Roopnarine explained that the Guyanese people have been given more access to the Parliament and its affairs since the formation of APNU and the level of transparency has increased considerable in the country.
APNU is a political alliance that was formed during the 2011 general election.
They won 26 seats in the National Assembly and the Parties in APNU include: Guyana Action Party (GAP), National Front Alliance (NFA), People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), and Working People’s Alliance (WPA).
