Press Release PNCR REJECTS MISLEADING HEADLINE IN KAIETEUR NEWS People's National Congress Reform Congress Place, Sophia, Georgetown, Guyana. Tuesday, October 11, 2005




The People’s National Congress Reform totally rejects the inference contained in the article which appeared under the caption, “PNCR seeks coalition with smaller parties – Third Force says proposal out of the question”, which appeared in the Kaieteur News of October 11, 2005. The article suggests that the PNCR had sought coalition talks with the recently launched Third Force.

The PNCR wishes to clarify for the public record that it has neither sought coalition talks nor engaged in any discussion with this organisation. The PNCR Press Statement of Thursday October 6, 2005, clearly sets out the Party’s policy position on the question of building alliances with other Parties as adumbrated by its Leader at the last Biennial Congress in 2004, long before talk of any Third Force was in the air. The PNCR is interested in exploring with all Parties the means by which Guyana can be transformed into a dynamic and prosperous society. This approach is not confined to any particular grouping or Party.

The PNCR, however, welcomes the initiative of the smaller Parties working together and sees it as a useful mechanism for promoting understanding and the basis for shared governance.
