-party thrown into further turmoil
The AFC is plunged into further turmoil after the exit of another of its high profile executive members. We have learnt from sources within the party that Gerhard Ramsaroop has decided against further participation in the party's leadership after a disagreement with Raphael Trotman. In an effort to provide damage control the party will say that he has given up his political aspirations in order to concentrate on several business ventures inherited from his father.
Observers have pointed out that as the AFC returns to the PNC fold under Trotman's guidance many more Indo-Guyanese executive members will be forced out.
