PRESS RELEASE PEOPLE’S NATIONAL CONGRESS REFORM EASTER MESSAGE People's National Congress Reform Congress Place, Sophia, Georgetown, Guyana. Friday, April 14,2006




The People’s National Congress Reform is happy to join with our Christian brothers and sisters in Guyana, and the rest of the world in the observances associated with the Easter Season.

From its earliest days in Government, the Party paid careful attention to the religious groups, which make up a valuable part of our nation. The Christian, Hindu and Muslim Faiths have been given ample scope under past People’s National Congress Administrations to practice their religion and to celebrate various anniversaries. The Party has saluted each of these groups whenever there is an important event in their religious calendar. Thus the Party has already, this year, marked the celebrations of Eid, Phagwah and Youman Nabi, each celebration containing important lessons for the spiritual and material development of Guyana.

Easter is another important event as it marks the period in the Christian calendar when Christ was crucified and resurrected.

The lesson here is the significance of Death and Rebirth. This lesson is important for the Christian Religion as it is for the other Religions, which constitute our national polity.

Here in Guyana, the People’s National Congress Reform would be glad to see, the demise of poor governance, discrimination, economic mismanagement, the continuing spread of poverty, among other things, which have been inflicted on this Nation, and the rebirth, which is characterized with peace, national cohesion and reconstruction.

The Party is sure that this occasion will be marked by a time for reflection and recommitment, as well as, the usual kite flying and other relevant interactivities.

A HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER TO ALL GUYANESE
