AFC’s Clears The Air About Their Diaspora Policy
Presidential candidate of the Alliance for Change Khemraj Ramjattan has sought to clear the air on the AFC’s Diaspora policy.
Ramjattan in a recent interview said that if the party is to succeed at the polls later this year, it will look to have more of its members in the Diaspora, actively involved in the affairs and development of the country. One of the things the party intends to do if given the opportunity to lead is to promote diasporal representation in the parliament and to re-introduce diasporal voting at general elections.
By this the AFC believes that Guyana will have a bright future for investments while at the same time attract several skilled workers and entrepreneurs in the various sectors.
It is also the belief of the Alliance For change that among its membership in the diaspora, there are competent individuals who can contribute to the country’s development and push it forward.
It is on this note that Ramjattan said he is not too worried with what the critics have to say about the party’s leadership.
Since the launch of the AFC’s action plan for the 2011 elections back in January, it has received significant support from its overseas members.
As part of the action plan, the party said that mobilizing Diaspora investors and medical practitioners to upgrade the health services sector will make re-migration more attractive.
