On the eve of the second anniversary of the accession to office of the APNU-AFC administration, President David Granger talks with The Guyana Review about his administration, his presidency and his vision for the future of Guyana
Guyana Review: You are the only President of Guyana ever to have served in that office without the benefit of any prior Cabinet experience. How would you describe that initial feeling of having to lead a nation without what one might call a prior related leadership credentials?
President Granger: Mrs. Janet Jagan served an incomplete term during the colonial period, thirty-five years before becoming President. By comparison, also, persons in other jurisdictions such as Evo Morales, Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela became Presidents without ‘prior Cabinet experience.’ My initial feeling was one of self-confidence and conviction.
