The National Executive Committee of the Alliance for Change (AFC) at its meeting
today, put the party on full election campaign mode to ensure the return to office of the APNU+AFC Coalition government in the March 2, 2020 general and regional elections.

At its all-day meeting in Georgetown with representatives from all regions, the party endorsed its campaign plan and strategy presented by its international campaign consultants and approved members of the national campaign committee, campaign directorate, operating structure and campaign budget.

The Committee also received a report and endorsed decisions taken by its coalition negotiating team to arrive at a successor Cummingsburg Accord, to replace the existing agreement, which expires in February 2020.

The NEC provided guidance to assist the negotiating team in finalising agreement on the remaining outstanding items. The NEC further agreed to an extended time line of November 10, 2019 for the signing of the new accord.
