Georgetown Guyana: March 6, 2013 - The Alliance for Change (AFC) shares the grief and loss of the Government and Venezuelan people on the death of President Hugo Chavez.
President Hugo Chavez has been a larger than life leader who, as a true soldier, gave his life in the service of his people, his country and the whole of Latin America and the Caribbean.
He would be remembered as a friend of Guyana not only for ensuring that we get fuel on concessionary terms, but for choosing the path of peaceful resolution of territorial issues.
This will be a difficult time for our sisters and brothers of Venezuela, and for our large Guyanese immigrant population in Venezuela, who identified with Chavez as a benevolent leader.
The AFC hopes for a peaceful and democratic transition in Venezuela.
