We will need consensus politics whoever wins

Dear Editor,

Before we all get too carried away by the upcoming elections of May 11 may I take this opportunity to inform Guyanese that whoever wins the next general election by a plurality, and forms the government, will still need to work with the political opposition unless an overall majority is won.

So, if the PPP/C wins the next general election with a plurality they will still need to work with the opposition APNU-AFC coalition. Similarly, if the APNU-AFC coalition wins the next general election they will still need to work with the PPP/C in opposition.

As a supporter of the PPP/C I say consensus politics can be practised. Consensus politics means looking at where we can work together promoting trust, mutual understanding and respect.

Yours faithfully,

Sean McLean
