Why the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) continues to adopt a policy which hinges on confrontation and controversy, I don’t know. Despite the fact that there is more than credible reasons to justify the sacking of the Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee, the PPP/C continues to defy the will of the people and keep this controversial minister in office, albeit a no confidence motion was passed against him. Today, Guyanese wake up with the PPP/C calling for the reappointment of controversial GECOM official, Gocool Boodoo, a man who has been a prime controversial figure in the nation’s National and Regional Elections. Again, the National Budget attracts much controversy and lacks support of the opposition because the government failed to involve the parliamentary opposition in the process. If the PPP/C is serious about reaching across the aisle and arriving at consensus through collaboration it would adopt a more responsible approach towards government. The “we in charge” mentality has long been discharged with. It is time for leopards to change their stripes. Guyanese will have to determine whether the PPP/C government is able to change it stripes, or whether they will have to pressure it to change its stripes.
