Letters

Voting times on November 28 are 6 am to 6 pm

Dear Editor, Please permit me to comment on the letter titled ‘Why did Gecom change the polling day times?‘ which was published in the Stabroek News of November 14 under the name ‘Alfred Bhulai.‘ It is amazing that Mr Bhulai would raise a non-issue in the media thereby exposing himself to the possibility of being deemed a ‘loose cannon.’  His letter proves that even educated people can be sucked inextricably into black holes of absurdity.

Without independent verification Bisram’s poll ‘results’ are nothing more than claims

Dear Editor, In Stabroek News, October 31, 2011, ‘NACTA polls put PPP in the lead,’ PPP pollster, Mr Vishnu Bisram, claims that the results of his latest poll show that “the PPP is polling 48%, followed by APNU 25%, AFC 8%, JFAP 1%, other parties less than 1%, and 17% undecided or no response.” He also claims that “The poll randomly interviewed 500 voters to yield a demographically representative sample 45% Indians, 30% Africans, 16% Mixed, 8% Amerindians, and 1% other races.” There is a bit of a non-sequitur here.

There should be four age categories for the old age pension

Dear Editor, This is a suggestion for pensions for senior citizens. There should be four categories of payment as follows: 65 years – 75 years        $10,000 76 years – 85 years        $12,500 86 years – 95 years        $15,000 96 and over             $20,000 Considering the size of the President’s pension this could be a match-winning suggestion for the elderly in the manifestos at this time.

PPP/C government made Guyana creditworthy

Dear Editor, Guyanese will be asked on November 28 to make a decision that will determine whether we move forward at an accelerated pace under another PPP/C administration or whether we run the risk of reversing the social and economic gains made by the current administration since its assumption to office on October 5, 1992.

Supporting AFC

Dear Editor, In this struggle to see a better Guyana shorn of corruption, cronyism, ethnic bias, extra-judicial killings and the infestation of a narco-economy, I have long examined our choices – even if it is with disappointment – and have never shied away from zooming in on a political movement that offers us a genuine opportunity to realise, together as a people, a better society.
