AFC and PNCR stumble again and again

ONE of these good days the AFC and the PNCR will get it right. For now, the Guyanese people must settle for a mass of confusion from these two political parties. The parties have been going back and forth with some alliance of sorts, but at this time no one has any confidence that they truly know what they are doing, or even what they are likely to do.
The essence of the problem has been best stated by the almost defunct WPA, namely, that the AFC should not strive for hegemony through its alliance gambit. The concern of the WPA is that the AFC wants other parties to support it, but at the same time, wants to keep the top spots on the ticket for itself.
Now if you have been in politics for a while this would not surprise you. Political parties are in the business of winning elections and then using high office to move a country forward. So no one should be surprised that the AFC wants others to help it for nothing in return.
You can be assured that the PNCR is too smart for this kind of dead on arrival proposal. Mr. Corbin has properly distanced himself from the AFC machinations. Chances are the PNCR will play the AFC along and then abandon them when the time is right. What the WPA thinks of all this is not especially important because they have no organisation on the ground.
A good reader of Guyana politics would also know by now that the alliance talk from the AFC is really a red herring. It is intended to deflect the internal problems within the party. Mr. Ramjattan and Mr. Trotman would do well to speak with a single voice and really mean what they say. Little press conference stunts won’t do the trick.
While all of this confusion is going on the Jagdeo administration is proceeding at top speed with the people’s business. The following projects are under way – (1) extension of the East Bank Highway to Timehri and possible up the East Coast; (2) laptop distribution across the country; (3) step level increase in bandwidth; (4) the Marriott Hotel; (5) the hydro electric project; and (6) delivery of the benefits of the LCDS.
The naysayers will obviously say that these are not true indicators of development. Most of these folks, however, are not real. They hide behind internet names and engage in full time cussing. They are, of course, led by professional naysayers in some of the dailies in the land of many waters.
