Granger unpatriotically pushed Guyana into a constitutional crisis

by ,

first_imgDear Editor,The world recently witnessed how Mr David Granger unpatriotically pushed Guyana into a constitutional crisis when he used strongman politics to disrespect and deny the constitutional rights of Guyanese. In keeping with his strongman attitude, he refused to call elections within the constitutional timeframe required by the successful passage of the No-Confidence Motion on December 21, 2018.Mr Granger’s behaviour does not surprise us at all. He is addicted to bullying others. This is exactly how the PNC operates. We can all remember how we were forced to live through the Granger-style bullying under the Forbes Burnham Administration for decades. Also, we can all remember the infamous Red House saga where Mr Granger bullied his way to gain illegal occupancy of the Red House instead of resolving matters in the courts. This kind of PNC strongman tactic sends the wrong message to our people and it drives the sky-high incarceration rate in Guyana. The Guyanese people need to stop Mr Granger in his tracks by drawing awareness to his antics.At the moment, Mr Granger squats in office as an illegal President who is determined to remain in power through illegal and immoral means. Corrupt entities with strong PNC influence like GECOM have also flagrantly trampled Guyanese to help Mr Granger evade the elections. To this end, GECOM cannot be trusted. GEOM needs to explain how it arrived at the February timeline for elections. The people of Guyana deserve to know. We deserve respect.And to my fellow Guyanese, let us see how long Mr Granger will continue to squat in office. Mr Granger needs to be reminded that dictators are never tolerated in this world. To this end, foreign diplomats have established that the Guyanese Government has violated the Constitution. This is important because the world will now interact with Mr Granger according to standard protocols reserved for handling dictators. And of course, international sanctions will soon bite him. He will not like it.But within Guyana, Mr Granger goes unpunished for breaking the laws and he is even supported by his fellow unpatriotic PNC comrades. To this end, men like Mr Lincoln Lewis and Dr David Hinds resort to profound lawlessness to defend Guyana’s dictator. The political situation is downright disgraceful. Mr Lewis comically demanded that Parliament must reconvene to extend the life of Government in spite that Mr Granger trampled the constitutional rights of Guyanese. Mr Lewis and Dr Hinds must know that bullies and dictators are never rewarded and tolerated in this world. Life is very painful because of these men. These men must come to their senses. They must know that morality is important. Guyana needs to move forward. Also, the world must know that Dr Hinds spews raw dysfunction because of his instincts in protecting his daughter’s welfare. Dr Hinds even wielded his power to appoint his daughter as a Minister within the APNU/PNC/AFC coalition in a dark transaction. Her qualifications were never disclosed. Dr Hind’s interest is in his daughter’s paycheck, not the welfare of Guyanese. Dr Hinds has got to be shortsighted. He has even failed to see how his destructive actions will hurt his daughter along with every Guyanese in the long run. Guyana is powered by bad behaviours that keep it under-developed. And the much-anticipated oil wealth will do nothing for Guyana. Our behaviour stinks in this country.Dysfunction is overt within the PNC. Mr Granger shamelessly fights tooth and nail for his rights but trample the rights of others. He has on numerous occasions been allegedly involved in instigating his supporters to riot and burn. Currently, he is threatening peaceful protesters who draw attention to his lawlessness. Mr Granger remains highly uncivilised. And I agree with my fellow Guyanese that he is a law breaker, a dictator and a bully. Guyana does not need a President with such qualities.Given who Mr Granger is, it is clear that if he loses the upcoming elections, he will never give up power. And so the Guyanese people need to be prepared for this.Sincerely,Dr Annie Baliramlast_img read more
