Fellow Guyanese, the 2020 National and Regional elections results have been declared. Many may be disappointed not only with the results but with the posture of their leadership. These results must not be seen as the end of the road for some or the beginning for others but must mark the redoubling of our love for country and fellowman.
In the process it presents the opportunity for evaluation, assessing the path travelled, developing new plans, and applying new strategy in the quest of achieving our goal as full-fledged citizens of this land.
This must include ensuring meaningful representation and a seat at the national and local decision-making table. Let none tell you otherwise!
As Guyanese, we must work harder to give true meaning to “inclusionary democracy” as outlined in Article 13 of the Guyana Constitution. Every square inch of this country belongs to all of us, be you residing at home or abroad; supporting a political party or apolitical; of same or different ethnicity, class or creed; or from the same or different location.
This is our Guyana! It belongs to all of us. Thus, we must all continue to play a role in ensuring her development and ensuring development is to the benefit of us all. Let us continue to hold hands to build this great country our ancestors, from diverse strains, bequeathed us. Onward, Upward, May We Ever Go!
