    CONGRATS TO THE APNU/AFC, THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. NOW LETS GET TO WORK.

    Congratulations to President David Granger. I am prepared to enlist as a restorer of decency and confidence in high public office. Alas, Guyanese can breathe deeply. Let’s all work together to eliminate hatred, poverty, unemployment and depravity. One people, one nation, one destiny.

    The APNU/AFC won the 2015 General Election by just 51.093% of the votes. The losing PPP/C had just under 49%. Although not all PPP/C supporters may object to the results they nevertheless constitute a substantial minority. It would pay the APNU/AFC to recognise the limitation of their tiny majority and rule so that all voters are satisfied. They should learn from the Egyptian Elections of 2011-2012. The Freedom and Justice Party (the Moslem Brotherhood) had a similar small majority but they started making laws that offended the large minority which was bound to invite protest, The military had to intervene to depose the democratically elected Freedom and Justice Party. Democracy has its limits.

  • Clyde Duncan  On 05/16/2015 at 8:39 pm

    I agree with Leslie Chin. The government must be cognizant of their limitations with a one-seat majority. I will add that Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically elected President in Egyptian history, was removed from power one year later; and was just sentenced to death for his part in the 2011 revolution. This scenario has no relevance to Guyana; except, as Leslie Chin just wrote; and Dirty Harry said in the movie, “Know your limitations!”

    Formal investigations must be launched into the previous administration and its leaders – Jagdeo, Ramoutar, Rohee, Luncheon, Kurshid and the rest of the gang, that raped the Guyanese people for the last 23 years.

  • Clyde Duncan  On 05/17/2015 at 2:21 am

    I must admit my blood boils ever time I see some holier-than-thou writer stepping up to call for “formal investigations” – The last President of the United States of America is very likely guilty of a lot of wrong things, but President Obama never wasted one-dollar, nor one bit of effort on chasing his tail, like a dog, going no where slowly – Instead, he got down to the business at hand – rebuilding the USA.

    And, he will be remembered at the “most under-rated President in USA history”.

    With only a one-seat majority, the government would best spend their time following the example of President Obama – let’s get to work – Yes We Can!!
