Opposition Leader Kamla Persad Bissesar has congratulated newly appointed Guyanese President Dr Mohammed Irfann Ali.
In a press release issued today, Persad-Bissesar stated even though Guyana’s Election faced many significant challenges, democracy and liberty prevailed in the end.

The following is a press release from the Opposition Leader:

As the Political Leader of the United National Congress, I would like to sincerely congratulate newly sworn-in President of Guyana, His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali.

While the process of Guyana’s General Election faced many significant challenges in the past months, democracy and liberty have prevailed in the end.

The strong showing in the polls by Dr. Ali as well as his party, the Peoples Progressive Party (PPP), was a clear reflection of the confidence and faith that the citizens of Guyana have in the vision which the PPP put forward in their campaign, fulfilling the old saying, “the voice of the people is the voice of God”.

Based on his party’s campaign theme, “We are stronger together”, there is no doubt that the expertise, solid vision, as well as experience of Dr. Ali and his team, would ensure that Guyana continues to go from strength to strength.

As a Caribbean region, we will always be grateful for the invaluable, rich contributions our Guyanese neighbours have played in our history, development and success on the Global Stage. It is on this premise we wish the incoming administration much success not only in achieving their manifesto plans but also working to unite the people of Guyana, enabling them to maximize their true potential and create a stronger county.

As the people of Guyana welcome the dawn of new national leadership and blossoming economic opportunities we acknowledge the contributions of Former President Granger during his term.

As committed partners in Caribbean development, we offer our unwavering support to the people of Guyana and they’re new government to ensure that we work hand in hand not only to mutually benefit both nations but our region as a whole.
