DPI, Guyana, Monday, October 28, 2019
His Excellency, President David Granger, has expressed his confidence in the Coalition’s victory at the polls on March 2, 2020.
He was at the time appearing as a guest on ‘INSIDE Sources’, hosted by journalist Gordon Mosely.
The Coalition Government, the Head of State remarked, has accomplished much during their time in office.
“My first tenure as president brought stability, brought development we have not been able to fulfil all of our objectives, but I have been able to inspire confidence in the bulk to the population that we should be allowed to continue our work.”
He explained that the ‘Decade of Development’ encompasses education, employment, health and infrastructure – things that are pivotal for the country’s development.
“They [citizens] know that I will do my utmost to deliver quality public service to them so they and their children could live happily in this country,” the president asserted.
Addressing the question of why Guyanese citizens should place the country’s faith in his hands, President Granger noted that he “represents a broad coalition, a big benab in which I welcome parties who share our common ideas, people who are prepared to work for the common good wherever they come from… I want the people of Guyana to look and say there are people in the Coalition who speak for me, I am inclusive.”
When asked his thoughts about his PPP opponent Irfaan Ali, the Head of State said:
“Mr. Ali represents a different mindset, a different ideology. I represent an inclusive ideology… I represent bringing people from all of the geographic regions… I am the one running a six-party Coalition. He is saying if you want to serve come into the PPP. I am not telling anyone to come into the PNC. I am telling them to come into a big benab where their views will be listened to and the interests of their constituents will be satisfied.”
The Head of State also assured that he is fit enough to carry out his duties and functions.
He noted, “I am strong enough, based on the support I get from my partnership and the Coalition to see the campaign through. I have covered many engagements over the last six weeks… I am strong enough, and citizens will see more of me in the coming weeks.”
In closing, President Granger committed to working towards an inclusionary government.
