OBSERVER : Why is the Opposition fussing about Local G’ovt elections


OBSERVER will always lament the hypocrites that are ever present in this thing called politics. They are ever present breeds, who by convenient pronouncements, are very easily identified. They believe that they can hoodwink the nation, reasoning that time may have eroded memories. Take for example, one of the issues of the day – the holding of Local Government elections.

It is well documented that such a process was not held during those long dark years of PNC dictatorial rule. In fact, the entire democratic process had been subverted to suit an illegal regime.
So what are Basil Williams and company shouting about the current administration not wanting to have such elections? Since when all this interest in ensuring that appropriate legislature is in place for such an event in Guyana?
But this is the nature of politics as exemplified by the A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC).
