Breathing new life into Local Government – Commentary

Breathing new life into Local Government

July 2, 2015 | By | Filed Under Editorial

Minister Ronald Bulkan has said that Local Government Elections could be held this year. However, the final word rests with the Guyana Elections Commission. And if the People’s Progressive Party maintains its position on the Elections Commission then that party will not be contesting those elections.

Local Government Elections were last held in 1994, two years after the General Elections that brought the People’s Progressive Party to power. It saw many areas electing their leaders because the People’s National Congress declined to contest the elections as a party.  The former President Desmond Hoyte had made a pitch to the government that the Local Government Elections should be truly local.  Continue reading

Walter Rodney Inquiry – concerns raised by GHRA and PNC

Rodney Commission is “worst form of electioneering,” can whip up racial tension- GHRA

Thursday, 06 March 2014 13:52

The Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) on Thursday dissociated itself from the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry (COI) , saying it was possibly designed to whip up East Indian bitterness against the Peoples National Congress (PNC) and appeared to be the “worst form” of electioneering by the incumbent administration.

That rights organisation took issue with one of the Terms of Reference that requires the three-member commission to investigate the extent to which the many quasi-political military organizations existing in Guyana at the time of Rodney’s death, were tasked with surveillance against the ‘political opposition’, rather than against his Working Peoples Alliance (WPA)Continue reading

Are those who did not support the PPP now second-class voter? – Eusi Kwayana

Are those who did not support the PPP now second-class voters? – Eusi Kwayana letter

Dear Editor:

Coming from me, this letter and the opinions in it may surprise many because of my 41-year stand-off with the People’s National Congress.  Yet it would be irresponsible for me to remain silent when I see the PNC making statements that open the way from their side for progress in Guyana.

Normally, I submit my letters to the press to a small circle for advice and information. Always, I alone am responsible for what I write. In this case, they will see this letter only after I have sent it to the press. I want no one else to be blamed, if there is blame.

It was humiliating to hear a United Nations specialist chide members of Guyana’s parliament for failing to use the present situation after the November 28, 2011 elections to create healthy governance and serve the Guyanese people.  Continue reading

There is no reason to apologize for the “Burnham Era” – Commentary

THERE IS NO REASON TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE “BURNHAM ERA”;

IF YOU DON’T TELL YOUR OWN STORY, OTHERS WILL DEFINE IT FOR YOU

A Republic day message:

Today as the nation celebrates the 42nd anniversary of the Republic, it is a good time to for us to revisit the Burnham legacy. Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham was the First Executive President of Guyana, and a visionary, who along with Dr. Cheddie Jagan, are undeniably the fathers of the nation. Over the years, Burnham’s political enemies and revisionist historians have succeeded in tarnishing his image and accomplishments to such an extent that today he has become their “Bogey man”, and whipping boy.

Burnham has become so unpopular that even those within his own political party the Peoples National Congress (PNC) rarely tout his accomplishments and are seemingly afraid to mount a battle to salvage his image. Continue reading
