GUYANESE must vote their frustrations at the high cost of living and the plight of hinterland residents who are targeted by bandits and pirates daily, says A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) presidential candidate David Granger. The retired soldier told thousands at the party’s final rally at Square Of The Revolution last Saturday night that the party would turn around the People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP) shortcomings in regard to education, crime and unemployment, while protecting farmers, miners and fishermen in the hinterland. Promising to give all Guyanese a level playing field, he said the APNU had on its side the “Guyana Action Party, the association of local authorities, the Guyana National Congress, Guyana Youth Congress, Guyana People’s Partnership, National Development Front . . . and Working People’s Alliance”. “We don’t just talk unity, we walk unity. We are the party of the future,” Granger said to loud cheers. (RJ)
