Guyana Elections: I will accept any declaration without condition – President Granger

– Harmon says court erred, maintains only ‘valid votes’ count

Pres. David Granger

President David Granger has said that he will accept any declaration of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), retired Justice Claudette Singh SC, CCH and that such acceptance is not conditional.

He was, at the time, responding to questions during the commissioning of the new Infectious Diseases Hospital, recently retrofitted out of the Ocean View Hotel property at Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara.

The question pointed to the President – leader of APNU+AFC – was, given the party’s stance on valid votes, whether he would accept a declaration which includes votes he considers invalid.    Continue reading

THE AFRO-INDO DIVIDE IN GUYANA – By Hubert Williams

THE AFRO-INDO DIVIDE IN GUYANA

By  Hubert  Williams  (Please note that this was written in October 2011)

Opinion - commentary -analysis  Boston, Massachusetts, October 30, 2011 — I wouldn’t have thought that it mattered very much. Or that anyone would bother to notice. That was until I visited New York to participate in family celebrations over the Labour holiday weekend.

Godfrey Wray, a journalism colleague from way back and now based in the “Big Apple”, remarked on the absence of writings by me on political, social and economic developments in Guyana.

With music blaring close by and the chatter of guests around us, conversation could only be sketchy. Eventually, it was limited to our personal activities, his wonderfully well- presented first novel “Beyond Revenge”, and the unfolding ‘crush Obama’ frenzy on the American political landscape.   Continue reading

A surprising revelation by Hamilton Green, re PPP/PNC in 1985

A surprising revelation by Hamilton Green

November 8, 2014 | By | Filed Under Letters – by Oscar Ramjeet

DEAR EDITOR,
If Forbes Burnham had not died unexpectedly on August 6, 1985, the People’s National Congress (PNC) and the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) would have merged or at least had a national front government in order to work in the interest of the Guyanese community.

This was one of the surprising revelations made to me by Hamilton Green, who served as Prime Minister, General Secretary of the PNC, and held many ministerial positions. He is currently the mayor of Georgetown.  Green, in an exclusive interview with me, said that he was the leader of a small group which included former political advisor to President Burnham, Elvin Mc David, who worked on Mr. Burnham for years to agree to a national front government, and he (Burnham) had eventually agreed just weeks before his demise, but unfortunately he passed before it became a reality.  Continue reading
