It seems that for anything to happen in this country, there must be a struggle, an outcry, and then lo and behold like the hero, the Government intervenes and then it looks good.
In the past it appeared that they created the problem (recall VAT on Education, reversal of Skeldon Estate closure, Parking Meter Fiasco, etc.), anticipated an outcry, then appeared like the problem-solver.
Enough of the PR stunts, let’s get on with this nation-building process.
In relation to the Ethnic Relations Commission, after lingering in the Parliament for almost a whole year, then prior one-year consultation, finally Guyana saw some agreement from both sides of the house as 10 names were approved.
Getting such an agreement should be seen as blessings, since there are many disagreements in Parliament. Mr. Norton did his part; the MPs did their part, now it is up to the President to do his part. It appears that there needs to be an outcry for the swearing in of these commissioners, like there was for their approval.
This nation needs healing. Politics aside, Mr. President, walk the walk. Your speeches are inundated with a vision for unity, social cohesion and cooperation, so when are you going to get the ball rolling?
