Minister of Social Cohesion Hon. Dr. George Norton

Since assuming office in 2015, the Coalition Government, led by His Excellency, President David Granger, has worked assiduously towards fostering a socially cohesive nation where diversities are embraced and differences are respected.

At a time when Guyana is receiving global recognition, I believe that we have an ideal opportunity to demonstrate to the world that respect, unity, tolerance and harmony are alive and well throughout this land.

I, therefore, call on every Guyanese, including my brothers and sisters from the opposing parties, to exercise their constitutional right in a manner that is peaceful and respectful.

When the elections are over, I look forward to working alongside every Guyanese to further build this great nation.

May the fruits of this election benefit every citizen.
