APNU pledges to work with AFC to rescue Guyana from the ravages of the PPP

The A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) lauded, recently, the decision of the delegates at the Alliance For Change ((AFC) 7th National Conference to recommit to the APNU+AFC coalition. The body noted that the decision will add impetus to the joint efforts of our parties to rescue Guyana from the ravages of the PPP government and ultimately to defeat it at the next national election.

In a press statement yesterday, the party extended congratulations to the Alliance For Change (AFC) on the successful staging of its 7th National Conference on Saturday, June 11, 2022. APNU specially congratulated Mr. Khemraj Ramjattan for retaining his position as Party Leader.

APNU also noted that Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Aubrey C. Norton, called Mr. Ramjattan and personally congratulated him.

Further, the statement said, “our compliments also extend to Cathy Hughes (as the newly-elected Chair), to ‘Ricky’ Ramsaroop (as the newly-elected Vice-Chair), to Sherod Duncan (as the newly-elected General Secretary), and to the AFC’s entire new National Executive Council. APNU looks forward to collaborating with Leader Mr. Khemraj Ramjattan and the party’s entire new executive in a spirit of cooperation, consensus, and mutual respect, the statement read.”

Since being installed into Government in August of 2020, the PPP regime has been on a campaign of bullyism, domination and control. This has resulted in more and more hardship for Guyanese as prices for basic food items continue to skyrocket. Sugar which was $80 per pound under APNU+AFC, is now $200 per pound in some supermarkets. A packet of milk powder, a bottle of oil and the price of cooking gas have all doubled under the present economic mismanagement of the economy by the installed regime.

Shadow Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament Juretha Fernandes had predicted that by the end of this year the inflation rate will hit 11%. She had made this prediction during the 2022 Budget debates.  At the end of the APNU-AFC Government, five years term in office the inflation rate was below 2%.
