DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, January 8, 2020
His Excellency, David Granger this evening confirmed that Minister of Public Security, Hon. Khemraj Ramjattan will be the Prime Ministerial candidate of the APNU+AFC Coalition party at the upcoming General and Regional Elections on March 2, 2020.
“We have signed on the dotted line, Khemraj Ramjattan is my Prime Minister,” the President confirmed at the Coalition’s rally at the Hopetown Community Ground, Mahaica-Berbice (Region 5).
President Granger arrived at the venue with his wife First Lady, H.E Sandra Granger and Vice President and Minister of Public Security, Hon. Khemraj Ramjattan.
The Hopetown community ground was packed to capacity as Berbicians waved their yellow and green flags in support of the Coalition. The president assured the residents of his plans to push development in the vast agriculture region.
He explained that unlike the other party, the APNU+AFC Coalition has a solid plan in place for Guyana’s development, known as the ‘Decade of Development’. This plan, he noted, will see the region grow like never before. This, the president said, includes the development of the sugar and rice industries, along with improvements in the education and health sectors.
