The Linden-based Guyana Youth Congress (GYC) has endorsed the opposition coalition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), saying its promise of a national unity government represents the future of the country in which the interest of all citizens would be given full expression.

The GYC, headed by former PNCR member Denton Osborne, had been in talks with the Alliance For Change (AFC) on a possible partnership for the November 28 elections. However, APNU Campaign Director Joseph Harmon announced the GYC’s endorsement this evening.

In an accompanying statement, Orborne pledged the GYC’s “full support” to APNU presidential candidate David Granger and prime ministerial candidate Dr Rupert Roopnaraine.

“We pledge to work with and in the APNU to bring about the change which is so necessary in Guyana generally and more particularly to the people of Region 10,” he added.
