From U.S. President Barack Obama
Dear Mr. President,
On behalf of the people of the United States, I congratulate you and the citizens of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana as you prepare to celebrate the 46th Republic Day on February 23.
The bonds of friendship and cooperation between our two countries have never been stronger, grounded in our shared commitments to citizen security, improved governance, and inclusive democracy.
These commitments are exemplified in Guyana by the announcement that Local Government Elections will resume and be held in March for the first time since 1994. Local elections are essential to bolstering good governance, development, and respect for the rule of law. Your efforts to ensure broad participation and an informed electorate will contribute to successful elections and a bright future for Guyana.
Let me offer sincere wishes to you, your family, and the Guyanese people for a most gratifying Mashramani and Republic Day.
