[www.inewsguyana.com] – APNU+AFC Prime Ministerial Candidate Moses Nagamootoo has effectively dismissed claims by the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) that the APNU+AFC’s 2015 elections Manifesto is wholesale plagiarism.

The APNU+AFC in an unprecedented move launched its manifesto on Thursday, April 30 – 11 days before the Guyanese electorate is scheduled to cast ballots and decide the future of the country.

The document was launched at the Stabroek Market square where hundreds of Guyanese gathered on very short notice to witness the revelation of the glossy document all the while, withstanding the searing heat of the mid afternoon sun.

The manifesto, which was preceded by a leaked draft copy, did not present much policy differences coming from the APNU+AFC when contrasted to its predecessor.

According to Nagamootoo, the 54 page document is a collection of “original ideas” that were formulated after widespread ground consultation with the Guyanese people.

“We have not copied anyone here. We are original, we have ideas that can take this country forward, that can resolve the problems of corruption, the problems of crime, the problems of low wages….and also to take care of the many jobless in our society,” Nagamootoo told the crowd of supporters.

He said that the manifesto details a hundred day plan for the coalition as well as a five year plan for a coalition government.

“We will be there for five years, not like Ramotar and his predecessor….I commit to you this manifesto of the APNU+AFC alliance…a manifesto that has everything for everyone,” said the APNU+AFC Prime Ministerial candidate.

Meanwhile, Presidential Candidate, David Granger remarked that while Guyana is abundant in resources, it is the PPP that has stifled the development of the country by pursuing riches for a few.

He explained that the APNU+AFC manifesto will utilize Guyana’s natural resources in a way that will result in economic growth and prosperity for the entirety of Guyana.

“We have a plan and that plan is the APNU+AFC manifesto which we are launching today…we came among the people because it’s a people’s manifesto – it is for you,” said Granger.

“There are too many poor people and too much poverty and this has come about because the PPP is thieving too much… they are keeping us in poverty. We have too much resources but the PPP wants all,” the Presidential candidate added.

  2. Granger can you tell the Guyanese people why you PNC were forced to closed down your National Service that you are planning to bring back?
    The PNC claimed that they were unable to feed those in the National Service, and were forced to closed it down!
    You PNC are claiming that the BILLIONS that are circulating in Guyana is being given to the PPP by India and China.
    Well if that is true, Will those country want to give to a PNC dictatorship?
    Can Guyanese remember that in 1988 the USA said they were not going to give another dollar to the PNC regime?
    Can any Guyanese remember that the World Bank and IMF refused to do business with the PNC Regime?

  3. Granger all you PNC know is thief, and thief. Granger Did you say thieving a hundred and fifty five guns from the army and putting them in the hands of criminals?
