AFC’s Prime Ministerial Candidate Calling For Change
Prime Ministerial candidate of the Alliance for Change Sheila Holder said she is optimistic that her party will get more votes than it did at the last elections and that it will be victorious at the polls later this year.
Holder-, the first woman in the AFC to be elected Prime Ministerial candidate believes that the AFC is in a better position now to contest the 2011 general elections as citizens have become frustrated with the current state of affairs in the country. She believes that the people need a change now.
Holder was at the time speaking at the launch of the party’s elections campaign on Saturday last at the Ocean View Convention Centre.
And in responding to calls made by the Human Services Minister Priya Manickchand for her to step down from public office, Holder said she will not step down since she is there to represent the people.
She maintained that her statements in parliament about the pensioners not getting what is due to them are true and said that the AFC will continue to put pressure on the administration to stop its corrupt and fraudulent practices.
The AFC has since unveiled its action plan for the country and at the top of the list are plans to reform the country’s security sector and address crime.
