She explained that the people’s right to vote and participate in the development was always paramount to the PPP/C.
She spoke about the debts inherited when the PPP/C Government took office in1992, and because of strategic planning and execution of those plans, “we came out of the debt.”
Chanderpal mentioned projects that will benefit the Guyanese people tremendously, but which were all voted down in the National Assembly by the Opposition, and now they are saying that those projects are good for the Guyanese people.
The Chairman spoke on the achievements the Government has made, especially in education, providing much assistance to parents.
“Judge us by what we have done; we are not coming to you with empty rhetoric. This is why, come May 11, I urge you to vote PPP/C,” Chanderpal stressed.
