The Government of Grenada has congratulated Dr Mohamed Irfaan Ali who was sworn in Sunday as the new President of Guyana.
The opposition candidate was sworn in five months after general elections were held on March 02, which were marked by allegations of voter fraud.
In his congratulatory message, Prime Minister, Dr the Rt Hon Keith Mitchell said, “The work must now begin to unite the people of Guyana and enable the country to move its development agenda forward. Dr Ali can be assured of the region’s support in this vein.”
Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell was part of a team of five Prime Ministers who paid a two day visit to Guyana following the elections, when a resolution was being sought to the impasse that ensued.
Dr Ali, who was declared the 9th Executive President of Guyana by the Guyana Elections Commission, immediately made clear his intention to work in a unified manner.
The new President, who succeeds former President David Granger, heads The People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), which holds thirty-three of the sixty-five seats in the National Assembly.
