Guyana Politics: 2018 AND WAITING – By Verian Mentis-Barker

Granger – Nagamootoo

For its 32 months in Government the Coalition knew not why it was there.

It took office at a time when autocracy had become the unofficial but the singular political order; when governing was executed in irritable mental gestures – spurts of malice against the larger population with jitters of anxiety to cover up an array of governing improprieties.

The Coalition would infuse national politics with brio; bringing an elegance to its conduct and altering its trajectory while repairing an image that would restore international respect for Guyana’s  model of governance, thought the people.

    “Guyana may be as broken as any other broken country, but it offers testament, not to some inherent national inability to govern but to a political culture that sits in the carry over column of the nation’s general ledger of politics. Every government seems committed to the practices of politics past, fighting more for its party and ideological paramountcy than to improve the lot of those who elected them.”

    ~ The above excerpt is a sad indictment from the columnist Verian Mentis-Barker.
