With an elections date set, the People’s National Congress Reform, which is the largest party in the coalition government, is encouraging citizens who were not registered during the recently aborted house-to-house registration to ensure they get registered during the claims and objections period.
The Guyana Elections Commission has announced that the claims and objections period will begin from the 1st October and end in mid-November.
At the PNC’s weekly press conference today, Party Executive, Aubrey Norton said the coalition government is ready to defeat the PPP at the upcoming polls.
“Guyanese are now preparing for the claims and objection period. We urge all Guyanese to register during this period and to work assiduously to clean the list of the many phantoms that have been placed there during PPP misrule of Guyana. We are convinced that with a credible list and credible elections the Guyanese people will re-elect President Granger and the APNU+AFC government”, Norton said.
Norton said the identifying of a date for elections is clear evidence that the coalition is not afraid of elections and it is the PPP that has always been finding something new to complain about.
According to Norton, the APNU+AFC coalition is “prepared and will defeat the PPP, whose shameful record of lawlessness, dishonesty, arbitrary use of power against anyone who disagreed with them, contempt for the people of Guyana, collaborating with drug traffickers, enrichment of their friends and families and the destruction of our law enforcement agencies, so that the lawless can dominate our society will not appeal to the people of Guyana”.
He said the opposition party needs to recognise that its days of trampling on the rights of Guyanese are over and the party is convinced that the people of Guyana will give the President a second term in office.
