LJP congratulates President Irfaan Ali
See below full statement issued by the Liberty and Justice Party:
The Liberty and Justice Party congratulates President Elect, Dr. Irfaan Ali and the People Progressive Party/Civic on their victory at the 2 March 2020 elections.
That the declaration took this long is a travesty and an event that has caused very serious societal fault lines that the people will now look to the incoming administration to take significant steps to heal. The events leading up to these delayed results are matters that we hope the incoming administration treats with decisively to avoid future such events and to deter anyone from thinking they can perverse the will of the people.
We extend our gratitude to all the political parties that fought to defend democracy, the international community and partners, the Guyana Elections Commission and the patient Guyanese population. We also extend a special thank you to the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission, Madam Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh for all her tireless efforts and for the delivery free, fair, transparent and credible elections.
We look forward to an inclusive government and the fulfilment of the PPP/C’s pre-electoral promises to ensure an inclusive and progressive Guyana.
