GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- Like the opposition People's National Congress Reform (PNCR) presidential candidates, the five presidential hopefuls of the ruling People's Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) in Guyana are also lobbying to woo support for their candidacy.
Two candidates, Ralph Ramkarran and Clement Rohee, on Monday made presentations to the PPPC executive members at a specially convened meeting held at the Office of the President.
Each presentation lasted two hours, and it is understood two other candidates, Gail Teixeira and Donald Ramoutar, will present their cases next week.
The fifth candidate, Moses Nagamootoo said that he is boycotting the process because grassroots members should have a greater say rather than the 15 members of the executive council.
He said, however, he would be prepared to present his case before the 35 members of the Central Executive if he was advised that they would consider his proposal for more involvement of the rank and file members.
The PPPC will name its candidate at the party's convention in April.
The PNCR is expected to identify its presidential candidate on February 25. Five persons are vying for the top office. They are: former ministers Carl Greenidge and Faith Harding, Brigadier David Grainger, vice chairman Basil Williams and attorney James Bond.
