AFTER A TENSE three-day wait since Monday’s election, the Co-Operative Republic of Guyana gets a new president in Donald Ramotar as the People’s Progressive Party-Civic (PPP-C) won by a close margin today.
Ramotar, who took over leadership of the PPP-C in April this year, has led his re-elected party, which has been in power since 1992, to victory with 32 of the 65 seats. A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) won 26 seats and the Alliance For Change (AFC) seven in the national assembly.
The PPP-C polled an overall 166 340 votes, APNU polled 139 678 and the AFC gained 35 333.
Of the registered 475 496 voters, heavy polling last Monday saw a 72.9 per cent turnout. (RJ)
