Guyana: The Election Campaign 

April 20, 2015 · By Stabroek News – Editorial

imagesA new low in this election campaign was registered on Saturday (April 18), on the Essequibo Coast with the slinging up of effigies of the presidential and prime ministerial candidates of the APNU+AFC.

With the stakes so high, it is evident that temperatures will rise further as the campaign progresses and the situation must be immediately tamped down.Both major contestants will know that their supporters can get carried away in the heat of the moment and do things that are entirely beyond the pale.

Dr. Moses Telford: Music is his Life – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Moses Telford is the personification of what a true musician should be: calm, unruffled, caring and above all talented.
