AFC Leader Raphael Trotman admitted to US-based Guyanese audience of 102 persons at the party fundraiser that his party could not realistically win the 2011 national elections but that the party was aiming to grab 10 Parliamentary seats at the upcoming polls. The AFC gained five seats at the 2006 national elections taken from the main PNCR constituency.
Trotman is becoming unpopular among his AFC colleagues over recent months, especially during the last few weeks. In Parliament in made a stinging announcement about his plans to leave the AFC and now his contradictory message of the party's inability to win the majority in a national elections.
There has been a major fallout between Khemraj Ramjattan and and Trotman over leadership and coalition issues. Trotman did not want to give up the Presidencial candidacy to Ramjattan who he said only brought in six votes from Berbice in 2006.
