[www.inewsguyana.com] – One of Guyana’s senior Ambassadors, Odeen Ishamel says that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) should concede victory to the APNU+AFC alliance which has won the May 11 2015 National polls.
Ishmael is currently Guyana’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Kuwait and concurrently (from 2013) as non-resident Ambassador to Qatar.
In political life, Ambassador Ishmael served in the Central Committee and the leadership of the Progressive Youth Organization from 1972 to 1982 and in the Central Committee of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) of from 1980 to 1988.
In a recent Facebook post, Ishmael said “it is my firm opinion that the PPP should concede since any recount will not statistically change the result of the elections as announced by GECOM.”
According to Ishmael by conceding victory, President Donald Ramotar will in no lesser ways demonstrate the unity that is needed to take Guyana forward.
“Good leadership is essential especially at this time; and by conceding and with the outgoing president meeting with the incoming president and offering working cooperation, at least that will be aptly demonstrated clearly to all Guyanese,” said Ishmael.
