The Largest party in the coalition government, the People’s National Congress is making it clear that President David Granger will be the Coalition’s Presidential Candidate for the next elections.
Mr. Granger is also the Leader of the People’s National Congress and Chairman of the APNU.
In a statement, PNC General Secretary Amna Ally said the People’s National Congress and the rest of Guyana are fully aware of Mr. Granger’s competence, his principles and his vision for Guyana, adding that “all are also well aware of his discipline and in no way could he ever be deemed as a corrupt leader”.
Ms. Ali said the President continues to possess the necessary qualities that are required to be a country’s leader and he has constantly been active in cleaning up what she called, the twenty-three years of mess which had Guyana in a state of total despair.
The General Secretary said Despite the rumours and orchestrated approach to filter untruths whether they are on his health or competence, PNCR would like to indicate that the President is ready for a second term and the PNCR is offering him its full support.
The President is currently undergoing treatment for non-hodgkin lynphoma. His Cuban doctors have said that continues to respond well to the treatment and should make a full recovery.
The President has completed most of his treatment cycle.
