Bartica residents anticipate continued development

DPI, Guyana, Monday, November 12, 2018

The polls are closed’ the votes are in and the people have spoken using their democratic right to select a leader of their choice. As they eagerly await the results of the LGE, citizens are hoping that the candidate that they voted for wins in their respective constituencies.

In Bartica, those coming off of work late could be seen hurrying to the various polling stations to perform their civic duty.

Among the late voters in Constituency Three was Zeneetha Simon, who is hopeful that the most suitable candidate is elected. Simon noted that the town has already undergone much development and is anticipating that this will be sustained following the elections.

Also, from the same constituency was Roland Mckenzie, who said the decision to cast his ballot at the LGE was largely as a result of the development evident in the township.

Mykael Zodok-Bradford is confident that the leader he has selected will continue to push for the development of his community. While, Joanne Benjamin said that she is looking forward to infrastructural development in her community.

The last voter of the day, in Constituency Three, was Wilborn Fortune who underscored the importance of casting his vote to select the most suitable representative to manage the affairs of his community.

Today, history was created as it was the first time in the Post-Independence history of Guyana, that successive Local Government Elections is being held as legally and constitutionally due.
