Amanza Walton-Desir for Leader of the PNC Reform

Dear Editor,
As the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) approaches its biennial congress, I urge my fellow delegates to consider the outstanding qualities and exceptional leadership of Amanza Walton-Desir.
Having known Amanza for many years, and having shared a deep connection with her family, I am confident that she embodies the spirit and vision required to lead our party into a brighter future.
I knew Amanza’s mother, with whom I proudly served in the Guyana National Service. From those formative years, I witnessed firsthand the dedication, resilience, and unwavering commitment to service that defined her mother’s character. Amanza has inherited those noble qualities, carrying forward a legacy of service that runs deep in her family.
Amanza’s authenticity and humility are immediately apparent to anyone who has had the privilege of knowing her. She is a leader who genuinely listens to the concerns of the people, and works tirelessly to address them. Her grassroots appeal is a testament to her ability to connect with individuals from all walks of life, understanding their struggles and championing their causes with sincerity and compassion.
In addition to her personal virtues, Amanza possesses exemplary leadership skills and good judgment. As Shadow Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, she has adeptly navigated complex international issues, advocating for policies that uphold Guyana’s sovereignty and promote diplomatic engagement. Her contributions have reinforced our nation’s standing on the global stage and demonstrated her capacity to handle intricate matters with clarity and precision.
Amanza’s dedication to service extends beyond her political roles. Through her involvement with the Joy Foundation, she has spearheaded numerous community initiatives aimed at improving the lives of underprivileged individuals. Her efforts in this capacity reflect her unwavering commitment to social justice, and her belief in the power of collective action to bring about positive change.
Amanza has been instrumental in bringing together diverse viewpoints, fostering consensus, and steering the party toward a more inclusive and forward-thinking trajectory. Her leadership within the Central Executive Committee has been marked by transparency, accountability, and a steadfast dedication to the principles of democracy.
What sets Amanza apart is her fresh and innovative approach to governance. She brings new ideas and perspectives that are crucial for the modernization and progress of our party. Her vision for a more inclusive and participatory democracy resonates with the aspirations of our members and the broader Guyanese society.
Amanza’s ability to work with a broad coalition of stakeholders, bridging divides and fostering unity, is precisely what we need to propel our party forward. She believes in building by addition and multiplication, rather than by subtraction and division, emphasizing collaboration and growth over division and discord.
In these challenging times, the PNCR requires a leader who can inspire hope and drive meaningful change. Amanza Walton-Desir is that leader. Her authenticity, humility, exemplary leadership, good judgment, grassroots appeal, fresh ideas, and capacity to unite diverse groups make her the ideal candidate to lead our party.
I strongly urge my fellow delegates to cast their votes for Amanza Walton-Desir for leader at the upcoming biennial congress. Together, let us embrace a future of progress, unity, and prosperity under her capable leadership.
