PNC self serving political games

PNC self serving political games

first_imgDear Editor,A parliamentary Constitution is characterised by the fusion of Executive and Legislative powers, achieved by the fact that the Government needs the confidence of a majority in the legislative assembly in order to remain in power. If one is to observe the state of our economy in 2018, it is hard not to conclude that this People’s National Congress (PNC)-led Government is in massive trouble even if it holds their 33 votes in the upcoming vote. President David Granger has made a series of dire mistakes starting with the 50 per cent for some of his Ministers but the issue that has really destroyed his legacy is his intransigence to the massive amount of corruption occurring in his Government under his watch. This is compounded by the abysmal levels of incompetence at all levels of his Government. What is even worse is that he continues to speak of social cohesion and nation unity as if it is biblical gospel that only he can dispense but when you examine his record, his appointments are an experiment that illustrates massive act of racial oppression that Guyana has never witnessed before in its entire independent history.But if we are to properly examine his mistakes, the gravest of them all, is how he clumsily handled economic management and continue to marginalise Carl Greenidge, his brightest and most competent at these matters in the Cabinet. Greenidge is one of the better Guyanese with real experience at strategic economic turnaround management but he is being wasted every day at Foreign Affairs; his forte is finance.Every man with a modicum of self-respect should know his limitation. Granger is clearly not in a position to offer the job what it deserves and thus his act of continuing to hold onto it is nothing but an act of desperation and extremely selfishness. It is absolutely delusional for any human being to think he is indispensable and he is more important than the State. This job demands 20-hour shifts but instead it is getting a couple of hours here and there from Granger. That is why political decision at the highest levels in the PNC ought to be made swiftly. What is happening today is nothing but a grave injustice on all the people of Guyana just because one man thinks he alone can do the job; he is the King Saul of Guyana. There is a reason why the State pays the President more than GY$20 million a year; it is certainly not to waste time and definitely not to work a couple of hours a day.I wish this no-confidence is a success because anyone with any iota of conscience will know that the voters are being short changed every day by Granger, especially those people who voted for the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change coalition. It was no surprise to me that a place like Sophia, a PNC stronghold, did not elect a PNC Councillor to the Georgetown City Council but allowed the People’s Progressive Party to win that seat. It is a clear indication that the people wants the Government to focus on the things that really matter; such as better education, health-care and housing. What is also very clear to me is that the people want the rampant financial waste and corruption under President Granger to reduce. Instead the people are receiving strong doses of self-serving political games all focused at propping up the elites in the PNC rather than the people.This aloft and elite cabal on top of the PNC must understand that if this No-confidence Motion miss them in 2018, they will surely be hit by the results of the 2020 General Elections. That is a promise.Sincerely,Sasenarine Singhlast_img read more
