Ministries renamed to emphasize functions – President David Granger

Ministries renamed to emphasize functions – President David Granger

The renaming of some ministries and the addition of a few new ones by President David Granger has raised eye-brows and criticisms in some quarters.

But President Granger said yesterday that some ministries have been merged with others and renamed, to emphasize their functions.  He cited the Ministry of Communities under which, former ministries like Local Government, Housing and Water were placed.

“When we speak of Communities, it is not just about places but about the social and other elements of living in a community. The intention is not just to speak of Local Government or speak of Housing but to foster a feeling among the residents that they belong to these new communities. We hope to infuse the feeling of community solidarity and provide not only physical facilities but social and cultural facilities to transform the communities.”  Continue reading

THE FALL OF THE PPP – by Ralph Ramkarran

 THE FALL OF THE PPP

The PPP’s boast has always been that it never lost elections. While it gained the highest votes in 1964, it was the PNC that was invited to form the government, which it did in coalition with the United Force. The slogan of ‘cheated not defeated’ resounded through the decades. The slogan is once again rearing its head.

The claim that it lost as a result of fraud allows it to maintain the delusion, for the benefit of its supporters, that it has never lost elections. This also serves to protect its leaders and policies from critical analysis and corrective action and revive its historic claims to victimology, now of an openly posturing ethnic political entity, to sustain the sympathy of its innocent supporters against the tribal hordes.

On May 26, 2015, the people of Guyana will be celebrating their forty-ninth independence anniversary under the new leadership of a multiracial coalition government. After forty-nine years of racial divisive politics, the nation embarks on a new beginning of a more inclusive government.

At the recent swearing-in of eight Cabinet Ministers, Guyana’s newly-elected President David Granger told those present: “We are determined to bring good governance back to Guyana. We are determined to have a Cabinet which is committed to National Unity.”

As with several new beginnings, expectations run wild; dreams hang within reach like ripening fruit on a mango tree; hope is born anew.

Those of us who have entered adult life and have already experienced new beginnings as a married couple and as newbie parents know the challenges each new beginning brings to our lives…
