Guyana Elections 2020: The Story Within The Story… E-Day and that ‘X — By Leonard Gildarie

Leonard Gildarie

Well, the hour is upon us.

Most persons can pinpoint that one moment when things changed dramatically, for the better or worse, in their lives. Today or tomorrow will not be a day for us to bandy out nice words to a population that needs guidance. There are decisions to be made and level heads must prevail.

GECOM: “Bloated” final voters list of 661,928 ready – elections commissioner

 in  Demerara Waves – January 28, 2020
