GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):

The main opposition coalition alliance today claimed victory in the general election even though the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is yet to make an official statement on the results regarding yesterday's poll.

David Granger, the presidential candidate of the alliance, which comprises A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance for Change (AFC), told a news conference that the coalition had been tabulating the statements of polls coming into its headquarters and that the results show that the party had made some inroads into traditional strongholds of the ruling People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) which is seeking to extend its 22-year hold on power.
