‘Our policies and promises meet the expectations of every sector’ – AG Nandlall

DPI, Guyana, Monday, August 10, 2020

Guyanese are being assured that the manifesto of the Peoples Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C), is a vision for the development of the entire country, and not just one group.

Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Hon. Anil Nandlall, noted this during a Government in Focus’ programme aired on the National Communications Network (NCN) on Sunday.

“We are here to build a country. We have a vision. Our manifesto was not crafted at Freedom House, in a back room, in isolation by two or three persons,” AG Nandlall stressed. 

He added that the party had conducted nationwide consultations.

“We consulted nationally across this country. We had a big symposium, if you recall, at the New Thriving Restaurant in Providence. We took submissions on board from every sector in this country. From the Agriculture sector, all the productive sectors, the private sector, the religious organisations, the labour movement, from ethnic-based organisations, and we amassed that and consolidated in one document,” the Attorney General shared. 

The PPP/C’s manifesto, he asserted, meets the expectations of every Guyanese.

“The policies and promises contained in that document, meet the expectations of every sector of our country and every segment of our population respective of geographic location, ethnicity, religion etc.” 

In November 2019, when the PPP/C launched its manifesto, then Presidential Candidate, and now President, His Excellency, Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali had described it as holistic, systematic, targeted, results-oriented, people-centred and people-driven.
