To provide benefit for pensioners,  the elderly,  the handicapped,  widows and unemployed.

To reinforce our nationalism and to be in unison with what we should be striving for as a nation and as a country. This manifesto has drawn upon the principles enshrined in the Preamble of the Constitution which pilots our destiny.“WE THE GUYANESE PEOPLE, Proud heirs of the indomitable will of our forebears, in a spirit of reconciliation and cooperation, proclaim this Constitution in order to:Safeguard and build on the rich heritage, won through tireless struggle, bequeathed us by our forebears;Affirm our sovereignty, our independence and our indissolubility; Forge a system of governance that pro- motes concerted effort and broad-based participation in national decision-making in order to develop a viable economy and a harmonious community based on democratic values,social justice, fundamental human rights, and the rule of law;”The aforementioned quote taken from the Preamble of Constitution of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana is the platform on which the core Pillars of the United Republican Party Rest.

The United Republican Party of Guyana is committed to the swift restoration of Law and Order and to correct the injustice being perpetrated upon both a the citizens and police personnel of Guyana.The United Republican Party of Guyana is committed to the swift restoration of Law and Order and to correct the injustice being perpetrated upon both a the citizens and police personnel of Guyana.

The rights of honest and decent people will be zealously protected whilst the criminal element will feel the full force of the legal system. To achieve this our Police Force must once again enjoy its enviable reputation of integrity, efficiency, discipline and service. Members of the Police Force will be encouraged to divest themselves of all political affiliation (even to that of the United Republican Party of Guyana)thus ensuring that the execution of their duties will be without favor or affection malice or ill will to any particular group, organization or race.Divisional Commanders not below the rank of Senior Superintendent will have total and complete responsibility for the preservation of peace and good order in his/her division and will be answerable to the Commissioner of Police.

Salaries of Police personnel will be brought to levels consistent  with the onerous responsibilities carried out by them. This in addition to other benefits such as low-interest Government sponsored loans for homes, adequate pensions at retirement ad intense training of new recruits, will bring morale in the Police Force to standards existing during the fifties and sixties.We would ensure that qualifies Gazzetted and Non commissioned Officers are trained overseas as instructors until such time as proper training could be done locally. We would undertake the retraining of members of the force who had not completed the required six months basic training at the police training school.

Guyana as a former British colony, inherited a sound judicial system. But, because of corruption and blatant acts of discrimination against a hapless section of the population, the rule of law is no longer the norm and political affiliation influences the outcome of the judicial process.A United Republican Party Government will take all and every step necessry to correct this situation. Jurists will no longer be coerced and pressured into corrupt practice.Under the United Republican Party of Guyana the rule of law will be strictly adhered to and justice will be served.  No individual or group of individuals, political party or organization will be above the law.The advent of lawlessness, now a way of life for those in Guyana who have a virtual license to commit crimes, will be a thing of the past under the banner of the United Republican Party of Guyana.
