Granger is not playing a fair game

Dear Editor,

Mr Granger has built a reputation of being unable to play a fair game. And he is unfit to run a democracy. His unilateral appointment of the 84-year-old James Patterson as Gecom chair is illegal, unconstitutional, undemocratic and disrespectful to the people of this country.  There are no kind words to describe such a reckless man.  History is repeating itself.  Mr Granger’s behaviour should never be tolerated.  Guyanese deserve better.  At this time, I stand with the parliamentary opposition in whatever course of action it takes in its struggle for democracy in this country.  Mr Granger and the PNC/APNU/AFC should never be allowed to trample on our democratic rights.

Yours faithfully,

Annie Baliram
