Leader of the National Democratic Congress, Franka Bernardine extends warmest congratulations to the leadership and members of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/c) on their victory in the General Elections held on March 2nd, 2020 in Guyana.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) empathizes with the workers in the tourism and other sectors who are not earning because those sectors remain closed, and who have been given no relief. We understand the need to be cautious in re-opening the country, but no good excuse has been given for why relief has not been forthcoming.
The treatment meted out to vendors at the St. George’s Market Square in recent days, in ordering them to suddenly leave their booths, is unsatisfactory and downright disrespectful. People who have not been able to vend since March, were forced to protest the continued closure of the market.
