So the Party! So the Government!
Recently, there has been an upsurge of criticisms and complaints over continuing attempts by the PPP/C Regime to administer Guyana in a dictatorial and high-handed manner.
Allow me to remind your readers that during 2002, Khemraj Ramjattan had tabled a motion at the Port Mourant congress of the PPP/C, proposing that the party’s membership should elect top party-leaders, as opposed to the current practice where the 35 members of the Central Committee picks the PPP/C’s leadership.
Mr. Ramjattan was later expelled from the PPP/C and went on to form the Alliance For Change (AFC).
Former stalwart of the PPP/C, Ralph Ramkarran, who left the party in June of last year, also fought with the party over its refusal to have its membership elect the leaders of the party… Even after leaving the PPP/C, Mr. Ramkarran has maintained his advocacy for the party to democratize its processes.
So, if the PPP/C’s leader would not tolerate complaints, motions, and resolutions within their own home – the party; why would they show such tolerance outside of the home to the wider GUYANESE SOCIETY? CHANGE is the only answer.
