The PNCR says its call for shared governance is the continuation of a process that dates back to the 1970s and 1980s.

"The search for a new and relevant form of governance has always gained our attention and, in our opinion, is needed now as much as was the case in the past," the party said in the statement issued yesterday at its weekly press conference.

The party's comments come in the wake of government criticism that its only interest in shared governance or a national front government is to acquire power through the back door.

The PNCR said it has recognised the need to put the country before partisan political interest and power politics, which was evidenced in the 70s and 80s, when the party engaged the PPP to work out a formula for executive power sharing.

"That recognition, coupled with our renewed commitment informs our present call... The PNCR will not be deterred by PPP/C propaganda and will press on in collaboration with all other like-minded Guyanese organisations in the pursuit of solutions to Guyana's problems."
