David Granger

Retired army brigadier David Granger tonight confirmed a report on Capitol News that he had been nominated by a PNCR group to be the party’s presidential candidate at the 2011 general elections and he has accepted the nomination.

He told Stabroek News that if the party agreed to this nomination he would be its candidate.
