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.

With reference to my last letter of concern published in your SN on April 20th, titled
‘Does the GPF have a section responsible for traffic lights?’ It is sad to say there was yet another accident at the Camp Street and Brickdam junction with two cars last Saturday, 21st April.
I recall, in the ‘70s, Dr Cheddi Jagan calling on contributors to the Mirror newspaper to avoid what he termed “mud-slinging”.
