The Alliance For Change (AFC) on Saturday held a high-energy meeting to finalise its strategy as the Party prepares for General Elections early next year.
Representatives from all ten Administrative Regions of Guyana gathered at the Georgetown Club in the city with representatives from the Diaspora joining by Skype to put details to the AFC strategy that will guide the AFC at the 2015 Polls. There were a number of youth and women members of the AFC represented at the meeting.
The National Executive Committee gave total support to the Motion of No Confidence and saw the representatives pledging 100 percent commitment to move the election process forward. All representatives were highly motivated and eager to get back to the Regions to advance the work that will give the AFC the advantage at the next poll.
The AFC leadership in one voice condemned the minority government for undermining the constitution by refusing to hold local government elections and establishing a procurement commission, as well as unlawfully spending public funds not authorized by the Parliament.
The meeting also saw the NEC pledging full support for Co-founder and now Speaker of the National Assembly Raphael Trotman in the face of a diabolical plot against him.
The meeting also expressed solidarity with  Kaieteur News which is being subjected to attempts to muzzle it as a member of the free press.
The meeting of the NEC received four nominations for the Presidential Candidate; Khemraj Ramjattan, Nigel Hughes, Moses Nagamootoo and Cathy Hughes.
Nominations received for the Prime Ministerial Candidate were; Raphael Trotman, Nigel Hughes,  Cathy Hughes, Dr. Verasammy Ramayya and David Patterson.
The decision on who will be elected the Presidential and Prime Ministerial candidates will be made when the Party holds is biennial National Conference on October 25, 2014.
