Guyanese are voting in the first Local Government Elections since 1994 with both the government and the main opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) confident of winning the elections.

President David Granger says he is predicting a high turnout of voters since voters have been clamouring for changes to the local systems that would have governed them for over two decades.

Meanwhile, PPP/C general secretary, Clement Rohee said he is convinced the voters will send a message to the coalition government comprising A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance for Change (AFC) that they have become worse off ever since the PPP/C government was removed from office in May last year.

Over 500,000 people are eligible to vote in the Local Government Elections that was won by the PPP/C when it was last held in 1994.
