As preparations for elections intensify, youth candidates from the two major parties contesting this year’s elections are calling on their supporters to remain calm, since there is no place for vile behaviour.
Opposition coalition, A Partnership for National Unity and the Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) candidates, James Bond and People Progressive Party/Civic Candidate (PPP/C) candidate Clinton Urling have urged their supporters to keep the peace.
During an interview on the radio programme ‘Hard Talk’ recently, Bond strongly condemned any action, racially or politically motivated that seeks to disrupt the society. Bond stated that he is calling on supporters of the coalition to act with discipline. The Attorney at Law recalled that his party has been disciplined for a number of years under the leadership of Brigadier David Granger.
He affirmed that the coalition is ready for victory and urged supporters to make the transition into government smooth.
Former President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce (GCCI) Clinton Urling agreed with Bond. Urling pointed out that leaders from both parties need to talk to their supporters. He emphasized that politicians need to ensure that they preach a language of reconciliation, love and trust, while moving forward instead of issuing divisive statements.
Urling, who recently appeared on the PPP/C‘s list of candidates, said that he has been receiving degrading comments via social media since the announcement.
However, the former GCCI President has indicated that he decided to join the party because its list reflects a lot of youths and the party has the country’s interest at heart.
