    Agree ..accept advice but no interference
    in the process…more a supervisory role ?

    Maybe even Chinese Russian or Indian
    supervision also.
    Devil you do !

    Let guyanese be free to decide their own
    future …free of interference from outsiders.
    Diplomats are not guyanese ! Fact !
    Loyalty to their governments.

    The citizens of Guyana to determine their
    destiny without interference from outside.

    Hence my suggestion to invite others to
    assist in a “supervisory” role.

    UK and EU are OK. But US? I remember Castro offering to oversee a re-run of the Florida vote when George W was first “elected” president.
