Chairman of the opposition coalition A Partnership for National Unity, David Granger believes that the elections results which have left the PPP with a minority government and the combined opposition with the majority in the national assembly have brought change to Guyana. In an address to the nation Granger said the fact that no party has one a single majority is testimony that Guyanese have shown the world change.
The APNU won just around 41% of the votes cast and will move into the national assembly with 26 seats. Granger in his address said the stage is now set for a new form of governance in Guyana.
He promised that the APNU will stick to its promise made to all Guyanese on the campaign trail. He said the APNU does not accept that the recent electoral process was flawless. And that is why they have demanded that the Guyana Elections Commission presents all of the Statements of Poll (SOP) of the elections for verification, something GECOM has since indicated it will do.
But the APNU leader made it clear that though change has come, it was not the type of change all may have envisioned.
The APNU he said will continue its work on several fronts. The leadership team of the party is expected to reach out more to persons across the country as it continues to push for a good life for all Guyanese.
