Dear Editor,

The Webster dictionary defines the deus ex machina Greco-Roman phrase as follows: “A person or thing that appears or is introduced suddenly and unexpectedly and provides a contrived solution to an apparently insoluble difficulty.” How apt a definition for this new political entity that has recently emerged. Could it be better put? At last, at long last, there seems to be some hope in being liberated from the political doldrums.

But let us not sit back on our laurels. There is work to be done. This nucleus, this caucus of individuals must be supported and nurtured in this movement as it prides itself to be representative of all walks of Guyanese society.

In reality what are we dealing with? This is not a new party. This is not a new leader. All these aspects are of secondary importance. The essence, the core of this new-look political entity is the implementation of its  ‘credo,’ a summary of a set of rules and safeguards which assures appropriate governance in the interest of all Guyanese.

How can we help? We owe it to our country to do all that we can to contribute to its well being.

Registering with this new political entity will be ample proof of your political goodwill and desire to serve your country.

The emergence of this deus ex machina is to my mind a vindication of the age-old saying, ‘More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.’

Yours faithfully,
John Fredericks
