Strip Harmon’s powers, enforce code of conduct for Govt. officials – AFC

Strip Harmon’s powers, enforce code of conduct for Govt. officials – AFC

APRIL 11, 2016 | BY | (Abena Rockcliffe-Campbell)

The Alliance For Change (AFC) says that too many responsibilities have been placed in the hands of Minister of State, Joseph Harmon. The Party thinks that this is the root of many problems in the coalition government which it is a part of.

In a statement issued last evening, AFC revealed that key leaders met yesterday on a retreat which is part of an ongoing effort to review the party’s performance. At that forum, the politicians also discussed a number of issues of concern to the Party. The AFC also reviewed and considered internal matters with regard to the party’s operations and structure along with its role as part of the Coalition Government of Guyana.

“Among the matters discussed at the retreat was the issue of the appointment of a Ministerial Advisor on Business Development by the Minister of State and other revelations in the public domain.”   Continue reading

Instead, Nagamootoo suggested that the prominent businessman had been handed the job by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon who was up to recently on an overseas visit to China.   Continue reading

UNFINISHED BUSINESS – By Ralph Ramkarran

A report appeared in the press last week of a meeting between the Prime Minister, Moses Nagamootoo, Minister of Governance, Raphael Trotman and AFC executive and prominent attorney, Mr. Nigel Hughes to discuss constitutional reform. Constitutional reform is one of the undertakings given by the APNU+AFC coalition in its 100-day programme. No doubt the Government is looking to make an announcement on the issue before the end of the 100-day period.

On July 24 a symposium took place at Moray House on constitutional reform. The panelists were myself, Henry Jeffrey and Haslyn Parris. The proceedings were chaired by Miles Fitzpatrick. We were engaged in what might well be regarded as unfinished business. As leading member, Secretary and Chair, respectively, of the Constitutional Reform Commission, Miles Fitzpatrick, Haslyn Parris and I handed in our report to the Speaker of the National Assembly some fifteen years ago. The feeling at that time by some was that the process we had concluded did not resolve the most fundamental problems facing Guyana.   Continue reading

PPP in Death Throes, Jagdeo Return to Perform Final Rites – By Ralph Seeram

PPP in Death Throes, Jagdeo Return to Perform Final Rites

Bharrat Jagdeo

I was saying the man’s ego was bigger than his mansion, when another passenger in the car chimed in, that his ego was bigger than Guyana. The man has no shame; some would argue that Bharrat Jagdeo has passed that stage a very long time ago.
Long before, he brazenly and “barefacedly” gave away free radio licenses to his friends, family and cronies before leaving office in 2011.
By now most of you know that Jagdeo is returning to lead the PPP in Parliament as Opposition Leader.

Apparently the PPP did not get the Memo the voters sent in 2011 and again last May 11. Their supporters either stayed away from the polls or switched to the AFC.      Continue reading

Demerara Waves – May 9,2015 – by Zena Henry

With mere hours to go before National and Regional elections 2015, the A Partnership for National Unity +Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) Coalition held its last lap rally Saturday May 9, with a massive turnout of several thousands to devour the Square of the Revolution and its immediate environs.

The Coalition’s theme of “change” to usher in a new era in the country’s political dynamic is the force that party leaders and those who have endorsed it urged Guyanese to drive them into removing the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) which has ruled the country for some 23 years.  Continue reading
