The PSC wants peace without justice

Dear Editor, The Private Sector Commission (PSC) is calling for the contesting parties to accept the results of the recently concluded ‘elections‘ declared by Gecom and in flagrant disregard of the legitimate call by APNU for a verification of Statements of Poll by Gecom and all the political parties as a pre-condition of their acceptance.

We need a government of national unity

Dear Editor, Guyana’s democracy since Indepen-dence has been a  work in progress. Our successive presidents: Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham, Hugh Desmond Hoyte, Dr Cheddi Jagan, Samuel Hinds, Janet Jagan and  Bharrat Jagdeo have each in their own way and with their own vision, taken our beautiful country from the throes of colonialism to the ideal we all dream of: ‘One People, One Nation, One Destiny.‘ The next Government of Guyana will take us to our 50th anniversary in 2016.

Dear Editor, The declaration of the preliminary results of the November 28, 2011 general and regional elections by the Chief Elections Officer brings to a close an unfortunate period of unease and angst in the population, which was precipitated by the inordinate three-day delay in the announcement of the results.

This is the era for consensus politics

Dear Editor, With minority government the stage is now set for Guyana to move speedily into a new political era. New dispensation politics will be characterized by consensus mechanisms and meaningful participation in the national decision-making processes.
