AFC city councillor resigns from party, quits politics

Businessman Michael Leonard, a city councillor for opposition coalition partner the Alliance For Change (AFC), resigned from the party last week.

Leonard subsequently told this newspaper that he has no intentions of joining any other party now or in the future.

In the resignation letter, seen by this publication, Leonard notified AFC’s General Secretary David Patterson of his exit and indicated that he would also be stepping down from the city council, so another member of the party could take up the post of councillor.

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with you and the other members of the party to contribute to Guyana’s development. I wish the party continued success,” he concluded.
