Protests for Local Gov’t Elections continue
More support for APNU’s call for Local Government is pouring in with the NGO group Blue Caps joining the Partnership’s protest. Head of the group, Clinton Urling, said while Blue Caps has no political affiliation but since its existence Blue Caps have been calling for the holding of local government elections.
Today the opposition leader led a group of supporters to the Office of the President demanding that a date be set for the holding of the local government elections. While President Donald Ramotar is playing hard ball, the protesters insisted that there is a need for local government elections.
Granger briefed the gathering and he assured them that the struggle will continue until a date is announced. He said in addition to these protests his party is meeting residents in various communities across the country.
Local government elections were not held in Guyana since 1994.
