After putting off its launch in September, a new party targeting mainly Indigenous Peoples’ votes, led by former toshao of St Cuthbert’s Mission and former vice chairman of the National Toshaos Council, Lenox Shuman, is now ready for a February launch.

Shuman told Stabroek News that the poor turnout at the November 12 Local Government Elections shows that citizens are disenchanted with the two main political parties, the People’s Progressive Party/ Civic  (PPP/C) and the People’s National Con-gress Reform, and that the future presented by these two parties is not one they will identify with.

“There are a lot of people reaching out to us on the launch, especially in light of the poor turnout and results of the local government elections, and the no-confidence motion filed in the National Assembly by the opposition PPP,” he said…..
