Stabroek News  – 03 January 2019

The A New United Guyana (ANUG) party is set to be launched in another two weeks’ time at a press conference at which announcements will be made, according to one of its founders Ralph Ramkarran SC.

The launch of the party was brought forward in the aftermath of the vote in favour of a no- confidence motion against the government brought by the opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic on December 21, 2018 and the expectation that the government has to hold fresh general elections within 90 days of the approval of the motion.  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

Officials of a number of Government agencies and Ministries seem to be packing up and leaving, ahead of the official announcement of the winner of Monday’s General and Regional elections.

Yesterday, amidst reports of movements of files and other official documents, Kaieteur News managed to determine that this was indeed the case.

This was a clear indication that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic was conceding that it had lost the elections.  Continue reading

Crum-Ewing was more a nuisance than a threat – President Ramotar

Even as the police investigations drag on into the murder of Courtney Crum-Ewing, President Donald Ramotar has described the slain anti-government protestor as nothing but a nuisance.

The Guyanese leader while addressing a West Berbice Chamber of Commerce meeting last Saturday dismissed suggestions that Crum-Ewing was assassinated, claiming that his (Ramotar’s) party, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic had nothing to gain from the killing.

“He was no threat to the PPP…he was no threat to the government…he was a nuisance value more than anything else. He was spreading a lot of racist talk on his Facebook, and all kind of things of that nature he was doing,” Ramotar told the Berbice business community. Continue reading

APNU/AFC ON COMMON GROUND – APNU press release

A.P.N.U PRESS STATEMENT   Georgetown, Guyana. Tues. 24th April 2012

 APNU/AFC ON COMMON GROUND

A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance for Change (AFC) have decided to stand on common ground to resist the passage of the 2012 National Budget unless significant changes are implemented in the public interest.

APNU recalled that, soon after the 28th November 2011 General and Regional Elections, it called for the establishment of a Tripartite Budget Committee to collaborate on the crafting of a national budget that would be acceptable to all sides. The People’s Progressive Party/Civic Administration adopted the call as its own but never convened that Committee. In spite of talks aimed at making changes to the Estimates, the National Assembly is now preparing to conclude its examination of the unchanged Estimates of Expenditure.

APNU and AFC have made it clear that the Budget, in its present form, does not meet their demands for changes to stimulate growth, lower the cost-of-living and improve the quality of life for ordinary people.   Continue reading
