Leader of the Opposition, David Granger says that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), within hours of the swearing-in of the new President following the declaration issued by the Chairman of the Elections Commission, Justice (ret.) Claudette Singh, five days ago, commenced a “vulgar, divisive and vindictive campaign of alienation, discrimination and separation” against former A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) Coalition ministers and members of Guyana’s Public Service.

He added that former ministers, whose normal residences are located in the rural and hinterland regions, were swiftly ordered to vacate their government quarters, “unreasonably, within thirty-six hours”.

He claims too, that public servants were locked out of their offices without explanation and that contracted officials were threatened with arbitrary and summary termination of their service.

“An atmosphere of fear and loathing has enveloped the nation. This should not be expected after elections in our country. The People’s National Congress warns the People’s Progressive Party to desist from pursuing this dangerous pattern of aggression against officials, members of society and persons perceived to belong to other political parties. The PPP will bear responsibility for the consequences of its conduct,” he warned.
