PNC/R continues to muster support for the much talked about upcoming local government elections.
Opposition leader David Granger is accusing the president of declaring war on democracy and on local government if he doesn’t sign the four local government bills. Granger was speaking at a PNC/R rally at the weekend in Golden Grove on the east coast of Demerara. He urged young people to believe in themselves and take back their communities and fight for a better quality of life.
Granger sees local government elections as an important tool to fix the many problems facing the communities. He told those gathered to use local government elections as a training school for taking power in this country.
While the PNC/R is preparing supporters for local government elections president Donald Ramotar has so far refused to assent to the four local government bills that can pave the way for the elections.
Local government elections were last held in Guyana in 1994.
