GUYANA: PNCR calls for subsidies for basic food items; more money for needy

PNCR Leader Aubrey Norton

The People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) on Tuesday recommended that government pumps some of the GY$5 billion into subsidising some consumer items and dole out additional cash to low-income earners and public assistance recipients.

“We call for the $5 billion Guyana dollars that have been set aside for cost-of-living adjustments in budget 2022 to be immediately put to use in order to shield citizens from these increases in the price of flour and other basic food items.” PNCR Leader Aubrey Norton told a news conference. At the same time, he noted that the GY$5 billion was 0.9 percent of the GY$552 billion,          Continue reading

People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) Leader, Aubrey Norton on Wednesday credited his now three-month long leadership with establishing party groups across Guyana and gearing up to put behind the 2020 general election campaign that he deemed the “poorest run” .

“I don’t want to get into the details of what the People’s National Congress Reform has become under the previous leadership. All I can say to you is that I hope to restore the party to the glorious days of Forbes Burnham,” in reference to the PNCR’s Founder Leader.    Continue reading

Guyana: PPP proposes break-up of Region Four to rig elections- PNCR’s Aubrey Norton

Anil Nandlall and Aubrey Norton

Executive member of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), Aubrey Norton on Friday accused the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) administration of splitting Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) into four sub-districts to rig future general and regional elections.

He does not believe that the break-up of Region/District Four is merely about the convenience of counting the votes in the highest populated region that has been plagued by controversy at general elections. Instead, he argues that the plan is to neutralise  votes in African Guyanese-dominated communities while allowing an advantage in Indo-Guyanese areas. “We are going to fight it vigorously because Region Four is one region and it has to stay as one region and if, per chance, you have to give reasons why Region Five and Six that you win aren’t broken up because we can break that up too and get a different result so it’s clearly a case of jerrymandering the boundaries and we will not allow them to jerrymander the boundaries,” he said.          Continue reading

Guyana Politics: Granger-led coalition “likely” to win next “close” election -US Congress report

The United States Congressional Research Service (CRS), a think-tank for the United States (U.S.) Congress, says some analysts believe that the David Granger-led coalition is likely to win next year’s general elections.

“Past general elections in Guyana suggest the 2020 race will be close, but some analysts contend the APNU/AFC’s multiparty and cross-ethnic coalition is likely to sustain the Granger government in power,” the CRS said in its December 6, 2019 edition

Granger’s People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) is the largest party in A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) umbrella which includes the often vocal Working People’s Alliance (WPA). The Alliance For Change (AFC) is the second largest party in the entire coalition.      Continue reading

Opposition coalition lashes back at PPP attacks in Queens, New York

The coalition appeared to have deliberately targeted its message to the predominantly East Indo-Guyanese community in Queens, New York who have been traditional backers of the incumbent PPPC.

Assurances- although not entirely watertight- that A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) would not kick out the Alliance For Change (AFC) from the coalition on winning the May 11, 2015 election were given against the background that the PPPC has been claiming that there would be a repeat of the PNC had booting the United Force (UF) four years after coalescing in 1964. “It will work my friends. We have to make it work. This is not about us. It is about you. This is what you want….National unity is now on the cards,” Nagamootoo told more than 300 mainly Indo-Guyanese.   Continue reading

Opposition Leader, David Granger has rejected President Donald Ramotar’s invitation to high-level talks, a move that appears to inch Guyanese closer to the polls very early New Year to elect a new government of their choice.

A spokesman for Granger’s A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) told Caribbean News Desk following an executive meeting of the parliamentary alliance that a decision was made not to accept the invitation. Granger has previously insisted that Parliament must be reconvened because that is the highest decision-making forum.   Continue reading

Emancipation Day messages -2014

AUGUST 1, 2014 | BY KNEWS |

His Excellency, President Donald Ramotar
On the occasion of the 176th Anniversary of the abolition of slavery, I extend best wishes to Guyanese in general and to Afro-Guyanese in particular.
This is without doubt one of the most important dates in our history.  It is also one of the major blows struck for the Independence of our country.
As we salute our fore parents for the sacrifices and the struggle they made towards our freedom, let us today take inspiration from it to score greater successes in building a strong economy and in strengthening our country as a whole.
Once again, best wishes for a brighter future for all.
Happy Emancipation!

People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR)

Buxton Monument

Opposition Leader, David Granger on Friday August 3,  said he was banking on Guyanese to help push Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee out of office if President Donald Ramotar ignores a majority-opposition approved no-confidence motion.

Addressing the unveiling of a monument in Buxton honour of 400 people allegedly killed at the hands of police and death squads in recent years, Granger cautioned that the no-confidence motion was not the end of the matter.

“Clement Rohee will be pushed out of office not only by the motion in the National Assembly but public opinion. If he doesn’t go, he’ll be pushed,” said Granger, a retired Brigadier of the Guyana Defence Force.  Continue reading

Carl Greenidge

Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition Brigadier (rtd) David Granger simply has too much on his plate when it comes to A Partnership for National Unity and would not be able to effectively focus on the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR).
This is the reason former Finance Minister Carl Greenidge has not declined the nomination for Leader of the Party and will go ahead with his challenge of Granger.

Greenidge says that his decision has nothing to do with questioning Granger’s ability as a leader, but with five parties to manage under the APNU banner he (Granger) simply cannot do what is needed for the PNCR.
