|Much talk, speculation on a snap election|
|Tuesday, 05 June 2012 22:07|
THERE is much talk and speculation whether the President will call a snap election as a result of the government’s (executive) concerns that its work will be stymied by the opposition, taking into account their cutting the budget and their puerile claim of being in charge.
Anyone reading the newspapers will find that we are in a sad state. They continue to harp on the cuts to the budget and the responses by the government daily.
I have no doubt that the Stabroek News, Kaieteur News and TV Channels 6,7 and 9 are Guyanese institutions (controlled by the opposition), but they do not reflect objectively the affairs and the happenings in the country; only the negative things interest them.
They display no spirit of patriotism. They claim obedience to the opposition. Look at the American press. When President Obama’s security personnel were involved with prostitutes see how they closed ranks. They “found” that the females were not security risks. Story done, case closed. Can you imagine what a field year the Guyanese press would have if something like that happens here?
Reporters have to gather news; if they are investigative enough they will report that the premises occupied by the Leader of the Opposition are rented from the Hughes family and for which the government pays.
They should tell us how much rent is collected per month (Mr. Goolsarran will agree), and whether the rental goes towards liquidating the millions of dollars owed to that family to the Insurance Companies. (Wake up, Freddy).
And speaking of Freddy Kissoon, I see his photograph among many Indians in the Chronicle of the 5th May, 2012, depicting Indian Arrival Day. I think Freddy has a good cause of action against the printer and publisher of the newspaper for getting him in a lineup of Indians, and he should get his lawyer to sue the hell out of them.
And Oh -the AFC’s Ramjattan has offered a breath of fresh air. He was dealing with the appointment of the APNU/PNC person Sandra Jones who was appointed by Granger as a member of GECOM instead of his, AFC, nominee. He said it was unfortunate that his party with a parliamentary strength of seven (7) members could not have been offered the seat on GECOM “to bring an independent view” on behalf of the electorate - that he was disappointed in the principle and methodology deployed by Granger, contrary to the national dispensation of broader representation of parliamentary parties.
He should also urge that the same consideration should apply in the appointment of members of the Committees in the National Assembly where the PPP has 32 seats.
