Indian-origin likely candidate in Guyana polls

 Guyana`s ruling People`s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is holding talks about presidential nominations and said its only candidate for the position of president is incumbent Donald Ramotar, a person of Indian origin.



San Juan: Guyana`s ruling People`s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is holding talks about presidential nominations and said its only candidate for the position of president is incumbent Donald Ramotar, a person of Indian origin.

"President Ramotar obviously is a candidate for the time being... there are no other names there," PPP/C general secretary Clement Rohee said Tuesday.

Rohee told reporters that the PPP/C executive committee is expected to deliberate on the presidential nomination, as well as the nomination of the party`s prime ministerial candidate.

"We will make an announcement that covers everything. At the appropriate point in time we will say exactly what the position is," Rohee said.

Political observers say the country could hold early elections after opposition legislators rejected an invitation from Ramotar for dialogue following his decision to prorogue parliament Nov 10.

The last general elections in Guyana were held in November 2011, when the PPP/C won 48.62 percent of the votes, followed by the Partnership for National Unity with 40.83 percent.
