PNC/R member Chandan-Edmond distances self from WPA’s ‘inflammatory’ statements


See below full statement issued by former General Secretary of the People’s National Congress Reform, Geeta Chandan-Edmond:

Leaders must demonstrate, in deed and words, a desire for national development in its truest form.

I have noted, with great concern, pronouncements made at a public meeting hosted by the Working Peoples Alliance (WPA)  on Thursday 09th March at the village of Buxton.

Some of the speakers  communicated sentiments which must be strongly condemned since they can lead to public  disorder and anarchy in an already ethnically-inflamed environment . As Guyanese, we must move swiftly to initiate mature dialogue aimed at

promoting harmony, tolerance and trust.

I wish to publicly disassociate myself from the inflammatory  statements and call for responsible actions and commentaries, from politicians,  civil society and activists  alike. There must be stronger national effort to build a unified nation.

I call for all national development to be placed in a context where all Guyanese must be assured of equitable treatment  and worthy participation in the developmental process.

    Racism and terrorism and the quest for political power through means have no place in any given society and anyone who perpetuates such behaviour must be condemned in no uncertain by every age and ethnicity.
