Guyana: ‘God-fearing political party’ aims to end homosexuality, restore integrity to high offices


The People’s Republic Party (PRP) is the newest political party to join the race for office come March 2, 2020. Led by Dr. Valerie Leung, a re-migrant who works in the field of law, the party is referred to as “the God-fearing party.” Its members are from the Christian faith and the party was launched on Saturday at the Ocean View International Hotel, East Coast Demerara with a church service. Dr Leung was born in Pomeroon, Region Two and raised in Georgetown; she is a 63-year-old mother of seven and is the Presidential Candidate but the PRP has not yet found a Prime Ministerial Candidate. With Nomination Day announced for January 10, the party is looking for Candidates. While you do not have to be a Christian, one of the prerequisites listed in the PRP’s code of conduct speaks against homosexuality.
