The Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform, Aubrey Norton, continues with his weekly attempts to seek relevance. It is highly unlikely that the Guyanese people take the People’s National Congress Reform and its leader seriously. In his latest desperate attempt, he continues to demonstrate why he is no good for Guyana.
As was highlighted by the Vice President of Guyana a while back, Aubrey Norton – who was elected leader of the PNCR in December 2021 – does his best to say things that sound good. Mr. Norton’s most recent press conference was no different from any of the others; it was riddled with inaccuracies and mistruths, which further demonstrates to Guyanese the deceitful nature of the PNCR.
In a desperate attempt to sound good, Norton said that had the Government followed the PNCR’s advice: to increase public servants’ salaries by 25% and raise the tax threshold, it would have helped the people of Guyana. This is rich, coming from the same person whose party, while in Government, implemented over 200 tax measures which took billions of dollars out of the pockets of these very public servants. It was Norton’s party which put VAT on water, electricity, cell phone data, education, and medical services. Whom does he suppose were affected by those actions?
The People’s Progressive Party Civic has increased the minimum wage from $65,000 to $75,000, and provided billions of dollars in relief to Guyanese since its return to office, while Norton and his party opposed every single measure that was aimed at providing relief to ordinary Guyanese.
