Sasenarine Singh resigns; AFC welcomes new Region 6 councillor

The Alliance For Change announced that Sasenarine Singh has resigned from the party. Singh, an economist, was an AFC candidate at the 2011 elections and later migrated to the United States, remaining a member of the AFC’s management committee.

Singh cited personal reasons for his decision to withdraw from active politics in Guyana, in his letter to the party. He lauded the AFC’s fight against what he described as “the politics of nepotism, crony capitalism and pettiness.”

Singh thanked the leadership of the AFC for its guidance and expressed the wish that the people

would vote out of office “the corrupt and immoral politicians who continue to dominate the political landscape of Guyana,” the AFC said in a release.

AFC General Secretary, David Patterson also acknowledged the resignation saying that Singh worked hard for the party especially during the 2011 elections. He said that Singh’s knowledge and understanding of financial matters especially was well respected and relied on.

Patterson took the opportunity to thank him for his service to the party and to convey the party’s best wishes in the future. He said that the party looks forward to the time when Singh will remigrate to continue the struggle for a better Guyana.

Patterson said that the members of the party and Singh will remain friends outside of the political arena.

AFC also announced the appointment of Devin Sookraj, a well-known Berbice businessman, and owner of a hardware store in New Amsterdam, as its new regional councillor on the Region 6 RDC, to replace Mohamed Muksha who died earlier this year.
