Change Guyana, the political party that was formed by Pegasus Hotel Proprietor, Robert Badal and Chartered Accountant, Nigel Hinds, disclosed moments ago that its majority leadership has taken the decision to dissolve the party.
Of the six new parties that contested in Guyana’s March 2020 elections, Change Guyana said in a statement moments ago that it received the second most votes in the Regional Elections and the third most votes in the General Elections. The party said that the results stand as testimony to its courageous outreach efforts across Guyana and the need for implementation of the socio-economic policies set out in our manifesto.
The party said, “The unique and outstanding contributions made by Change Guyana Party over its 10 months of existence – set out core economic and social policies that speak to the socio-economic needs of Guyana, by outlining policies for massive poverty alleviation, focused job creation, inclusive economic development, restructuring of a burdensome tax system and servant leadership.”
It added, “Our uncompromising and courageous conduct expressed in our writings and actions to ensure a democratic transition based on the majority votes resulting from Guyana’s March 2, 2020, General and Regional elections, was second to none.”
Further to this, the Change Guyana said that its former members can now work independently or collectively towards building a new political movement or political party or pursue their goals afresh, while always being appreciative of those individuals who supported and continue to seek a change in the political culture of Guyana.
It stressed that the focus of Guyanese in leadership positions must now be to significantly reduce poverty across Guyana and practice inclusivity and diversity in governance and employment at the private sector and public sector levels.
