News Americas, GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Fri. July 15, 2011: Guyanese voters are being urged to get ready for A Partnership For National Unity or APNU.

APNU, according to a statement received by News Americas, will contest the 2011 Presidential and general elections in Guyana, constitutionally due this summer.

Guyana’s current President, Bharrat Jagdeo will not seek the office again but the ruling People’s Progressive Party/Civic has announced that Donald Ramoutar will be their Presidential candidate going into this election.
