The Alliance did not attract many Indian votes

Dear Editor,

When the AFC was formed, the two leaders, Khemraj Ramjattan and Raphael Trotman, had hoped to win over frustrated voters from both the PPP and PNC. Taking an analytical look at the number of seats lost by the PNC to those gained by the AFC, one would conclude that some of the PNC’s traditional voters followed Mr Trotman.

1) Can Mr Ramjattan tell the Guyanese people why he was unable to persuade the PPP’s base to vote for AFC and what is his present strategy to successfully convince them to follow his party in the next general election?

2) I followed the recent interview given by the new member Ms Allison Mohamed and in that interview she stated that if the AFC does not live up to her expectations she will take certain steps. Would Ms Mohamed kindly advise if she brought any additional voting base to the party to warrant her getting a leadership role?

And since it is the votes of the ex PNC constituents who made it possible for the AFC to gain parliamentary seats, whose interest will she or the party be championing when in parliament?

Yours faithfully,

Allison Garnett
