PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, LJP – Lenox Shuman
“As chief and leader of my community I have always challenged the status quo. I believe that successive governments have made it very clear that they do not want to see or encourages strong indigenous leaders. They like them malleable and politically aligned. I am neither. Let me make this very clear, the Liberty & Justice Party cannot be side lined as an “Indigenous Party”. It is not. It is the only party that has no connection to the failed politics of the past. It is the only party that will defend and protect all Guyanese people. It is the only party that will put people before politics”
