 ,
After winning, he touted his youthfulness and experience in the finance sector as major advantages going into the next general elections. “The very fact that our party leadership has elected a young person shows that our party is committed to young people, not only by talk but by action,” said Ali, 38.

Bharrat Jagdeo

I was saying the man’s ego was bigger than his mansion, when another passenger in the car chimed in, that his ego was bigger than Guyana. The man has no shame; some would argue that Bharrat Jagdeo has passed that stage a very long time ago.

Former President Bharrat Jagdeo wants the High Court to quash a temporary travel ban imposed by the Lower Court on him until the hearing and determination of private criminal charge that he allegedly uttered racially divisive remarks.

Through his Attorney-at-Law, Mursalene Bacchus, Jagdeo on Friday petitioned the High Court to remove the travel restriction because of his “international obligations he is required to leave Guyana regularly” and he may also need to seek medical treatment overseas.   Continue reading
