The A New United Guyana (ANUG) party is set to be launched in another two weeks’ time at a press conference at which announcements will be made, according to one of its founders Ralph Ramkarran SC.

Prevailing lack of systems

After migrating to Canada in the late 1950s, I had been back to the country starting in 1967, when Tradewinds music became popular and while the visits were short – usually two weeks – they were regular, sometimes twice a year.  Consequently, I thought I knew the place – after all, I had grown up here.  It was a shock therefore for me, when I did return here to live 9 years ago, to learn, among many discoveries, that following our independence many of the fundamental systematic approaches to government and business were somewhat lacking here.       Continue reading
