PNCR criticises government in Independence Day Message

As Guyana celebrates its 58th Independence Anniversary, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) has issued a statement reflecting on the nation’s progress since gaining independence from colonial rule in 1966.

While the political party acknowledged the strides Guyana has made as a young nation, it claimed that the country is currently beset by corruption, mismanagement, and misrule.

Read the full Independence Day Message by the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR):

As we celebrate Guyana’s 58th independence anniversary, we take pride in the progress our nation has made since gaining independence from colonial rule in 1966.

From the early struggles to the present day, Guyana has made significant strides as a young nation. We have benefited from our collective efforts, rich cultural tapestry, ethnic diversity, rich natural endowment, and our determination and resilience.

However, despite these achievements, our nation is currently plagued by corruption, mismanagement, and misrule under the PPP/C government.

The once-promising land of Guyana has been ravaged by cronyism, nepotism, and a blatant disregard for the rule of law. The people of Guyana have been subjected to a system that prioritizes the interests of the few over the welfare of the many. The consequences are evident: a stagnant economy, deteriorating infrastructure, and a lack of opportunities for our youth.


But we, the People’s National Congress Reform, offer a beacon of hope. We pledge to restore the dignity of our nation and uphold the principles of democracy, good governance, transparency, and accountability. A PNCR-led government will put people first and at the centre of our development strategy. We will respect the rights of all citizens, regardless of race, creed, or political affiliation.

To the people of Guyana, we say, do not lose hope. We understand the struggles you face, and we are committed to creating a better future for all. We will work tirelessly to rebuild our nation, restore the trust that has been lost, and create a Guyana where every citizen can thrive.

Together, let us forge a new path forward, a path that is guided by the principles of justice, equality, and freedom.  A Blessed 58th Independence Day, Guyana.
