Mark Phillips selected as PPP prime ministerial candidate to address Afro-Guyanese interests

 

Former PPP Parliamentarian, Odinga Lumumba.

The opposition People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) said it selected retired Brigadier, Mark Phillips as its presidential candidate to look after the welfare of Afro-Guyanese.

Former PPPC parliamentarian, Odinga Lumumba told an election campaign public meeting on Lodge on Thursday night that Phillips’ selection took into consideration Guyana’s socio-political and economic landscape.

“His selection was very important to Afro-Guyanese to ensure that their interests are looked after and the APNU+AFC idle attacks on the PPP on the question of race relations was nonsense and divisive,”  Lumumba told the meeting that was held in the predominantly Afro-Guyanese community of Lodge, Georgetown.

Lumumba said the selection of Brigadier was not an accident and instead it was as a result of careful analysis of dozens of candidates. Other known candidates for the prime ministerial spot were Hugh Todd and Juan Edghill.

Already Phillips, a former Chief-of-Staff of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), has sought to assure Guyanese that he would represent all Guyanese regardless of their race, religion or political affiliation if the PPPC wins the March 2, 2020 general and regional council elections.

Lumumba, a former presidential advisor on empowerment, defended Phillips’ appointment about two weeks after General Secretary of  A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), Joseph Harmon told a public meeting in Buxton that it was “contemptuous” of the PPPC to have put up Phillips, a “Black face” as a means of buying Afro-Guyanese support.

Phillips has since reacted sharply to Harmon, arguing that by the same logic East Indo-Guyanese in the APNU+Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) coalition’s leadership are tokens.  The former army chief said Guyanese must be free to join any political party of their choice.
