Guyana: Patterson resigns as AFC General Secretary

A split between A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) over the election of the Vice Chairman of the Region Four Regional Democratic Council (RDC) yesterday resulted in David Patterson tendering his resignation as General Secretary of the AFC with immediate effect.

The two parties, which contested the general and regional elections as a coalition, supported APNU nominee Daniel Seeram for the post of Chairman but they did not appear to be on the same page when each nominated candidates for the post of Vice-Chairman.   

The 15 APNU candidates, including new Chairman Seeram, who cast the deciding vote, supported their own candidate over the AFC nominee at the meeting held at the Bladen Hall school on the East Coast.
