Leader of the Liberty and Justice Party (LJP), Lennox Shuman will be the first parliamentary representative for the seat awarded to the tripartite joinder that contested the March General and Regional Elections.
The two other parties are The New Movement (TNM) and A New and United Guyana (ANUG).
This was confirmed in a letter by the three parties dated August 6th and addressed to Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield.
“We are pleased to inform you that the representative of the above-named Joinder Parties is Mr Lenox Shuman. His name is on the approved list of Candidates for the National Top Up List of the Liberty and Justice Party,” the letter stated.
The parties had promised to use their single parliamentary seat to support legislation and policies aimed at bettering the lives of the Guyanese people, including constitutional reform.
The number of votes received by each party determines the time that will be spent in parliament.
LJP obtained 2,657 votes; ANUG, 2,313; and TMN, 244.
This means that LJP will serve in Parliament for two years and 5 months, ANUG for 2 years and 4 months, and TNM for 80 days.
