Dick Morris

In its bid for political office the Alliance For Change (AFC) has brought on board American political consultant Dick Morris who is expected to reveal today details of a poll commissioned by the party in which it is showing 25% support from the electorate.

Morris, who is credited with piloting former Ameri-can President, Bill Clinton to a comeback re-election victory in 1996 after the he had lost Congress to the Republicans two years before, was expected in the country last night and is expected to hold a press conference at Le Meridien Pegasus this afternoon.

AFC Presidential Candidate Raphael Trotman told Stabroek News on Monday that Morris has been working with the party since January. Describing him as a specialist in detecting electoral fraud, who would no doubt be able to detect it and root it out if and when he finds it, Trotman said this was one of the reasons why the AFC had welcomed him.

Morris's association with Clinton began in 1977 when he handled his successful campaign to become the Governor of Arkansas and the youngest in the nation. He did not work on his campaign for re-election in 1980 when he was defeated but oversaw his comeback victory in 1982 and his re-election in 1984, 1986 and 1990.He has worked with other senators and governors and for Mexican President Vicente Fox. Speaking briefly about the most recent poll conducted on the AFC's behalf which is some 300 pages long, the party's leader Khemraj Ramjattan said that it was the third the AFC had commissioned and it showed an increase in support for the party for the upcoming general and regional elections.

While he noted that the previous poll showed 17% support for the AFC he did not say what were the results of the first poll commissioned. However, he did indicate that the support base is mainly in the younger age group but said that Mr Morris would reveal who had done the poll and answer questions on it at today's press conference. This, Ramjattan said, would also set the party in campaign mode for the elections. The party's campaign manager is Clayton Hall.

The AFC has also begun the production of its official organ, The Key, which is published every two months and so far is being circulated free of cost.
