Today marks an historic time in the history of not only the PNC but inGuyanese political history. Today, Dr Richard Van West Charles andWinston Murray will begin the process of changing the political culturein the party founded by Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham.
Dr Van West Charles, in a display of political maturity rarely seen inGuyanese politics will withdraw from the PNC leadership race andsupport former Party Chairman Winston Murray whom he believes is anexemplary candidate who has served the PNC and Guyana for the pastthirty years.
This move comes after many discussions over recent yearsbetween both leaders whose common fear is that under the presentleadership the PNC will soon fade into oblivion thus denying thousandsof Guyanese the representation against a repressive, racist, corruptand inept PPP.
An official press briefing will be held at noon today then both leaderswill depart for Berbice in a last minute campaign tour.
