Guyana- Venezuela border: Jagdeo proposed Judicial Solution to Chavez in 2010 – by Ralph Ramkarran

In his recent interview on Venezuela, former president Mr. Bharrat Jagdeo spoke about his administration’s approach to resolving the border controversy between Guyana and Venezuela. He said that the PPP administration had considered five options for resolving it but he mentioned only one, namely, an outlet to the Atlantic for Venezuela.

Mr. Jadgeo questioned the ‘juridical’ route being proposed by the government on the ground that it may not materialize because of the need for Venezuela’s consent. In addition, he warned that if the parties accepted a judicial solution, the involvement of the United Nations in the process might somehow be impaired. He urged that Guyana ought not to take a position that would have such a consequence because it was vital, in his view, that the Secretary General should remain involved in the process.  Continue reading

LAST week, I lamented the fact that the PPP is doing its best to ensure that the conditions for a national government of all the political forces in the country does not materialise. I premised my conclusion on the view that the PPP is steeped, perhaps inexorably so, in the belief that governing Guyana is its divine right, or what I call manifest destiny.

Dr Henry Jeffery also believes that what he calls the politics of dominance is very much part of the PPP’s political DNA. As one who has studied the PPP as a scholar, and has spent two decades in its ranks, his views on the matter should be taken seriously.

The belief in political power as a divine right is seriously dangerous in any political economy, but it is even more dangerous in an ethnically plural environment such as Guyana’s.   Continue reading
