The historic initiative of the AFC to build national unity ……. Nagamootoo letter

The historic initiative of the AFC to build national unity could pull us back from the brink

March 2, 2015 · By Stabroek News -Letter · Comments

Dear Editor,


Moses Nagamootoo

If Sri Lanka can do it, after years of fighting, so can we!

It is with some reluctance that I have decided to engage Mr. Hydar Ally after reading his letter captioned `The AFC has taken a big political gamble’ which appeared in the SN of February 27th.

Mr. Ally said that political analysts were of the view that the alliance with APNU could very well be the end of the AFC.

Well, Sir, for a political scientist you have taken too much liberty to pronounce the death sentence based on self-serving views of “political pundits”, all of whom I presume are “Chatrees”. I trust that you could find equally authoritative pronouncements by Dr. Cheddi (Joey) Jagan and Mr. Ralph Ramkarran, both of whom were PPP/C candidates in 2011, but who believe sincerely that a national coalition is the way to go.  Continue reading

Guyana Election Watch: I am merely stating the obvious …. By Dr. David Hinds

Guyana Election Watch: I am merely stating the obvious that some conveniently or tactically ignore.

My letter, “After 23 years African Guyanese are being asked to vote for an Indian Guyanese Presidency,” (< click), published in the January 27 edition of the Stabroek News, has drawn varied responses from several quarters. This is to be expected. The central issue I raised in the letter has been and will continue to be the proverbial elephant in the room that most analysts, commentators and politicians tend to avoid like the plague. In such circumstances he or she who dares to raise the matter of race not in the bottom houses or in the privacy of like company, but in the open space and in a direct way, is bound to be maligned. It is a punishment I have long resigned myself to.

In this particular case I am confronting a seemingly growing mindset that has been shaped by the arrogant and heartless governance of the PPP. The PPP seems to have excited a deep feeling of popular alienation and frustration which manifests itself in a politics of expediency, “short-cut” and zero-sum horse racing, particularly among our elites.

A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) said that they were making progress on talks toward the formation of a pro-democracy alliance.
