APNU should apologise for the hooliganism displayed by its supporters on nomination day

A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) has shown its true colours by not apologising and justifying the breakdown of order by members of its contingent on Nomination Day, Thursday 27 October 2011.
This statement, issued from the PPP/C headquarters, comes in the wake of a statement issued by APNU, in which the members of the opposition are calling for an apology from Minister of Agriculture and PPP/C elections committee member Robert Persaud, for his condemnation of the storming of City Hall, by APNU supporters.
“If anyone needs to apologise it is Granger and Roopnarine for encouraging and now justifying disruptive behaviour in our society. Can we trust these individuals with governing our society when they encourage lawlessness?” the Freedom House release stated.
Minister Persaud, at a press briefing last Friday, commented upon the storming of City Hall compound and attempts to enter the nomination room by the PNCR-led APNU's supporters, when political parties were presenting their lists of candidates for the elections.
This action, the PPP/C campaign spokesman said, proved that the PNCR led APNU has not changed.
According to Persaud, it is expected that political parties’ supporters would act in a civil manner on Nomination Day, but APNU failed to live up to such expectation.
