The political comatose politicians in Guyana have an endemic ethnic virus that most political thinkers and think tanks are avoiding.
The reality is that the PNC’s Granger Afro base party is not going to allow themselves to be ruled by the PPP Indian based party. Absolutely not; because their Afro calculator tabulates 33 is less than 32 seats. This was the beginning of the PNC sign that giving up the Government is not an option by voting.
For Guyana to get out of this political ethnic comatose state to enjoy oil money, the burden is more on the Indian politician and think tanks to admit the race problem and move their supporters away from court fighting and recounts and deal directly with PNC leaders and populists for a permanent final solution.
The only vaccine to bring Guyana out of its political ethnic comatose state is to ignite the discussions on partition of Guyana that will be supported by most international communities that are knowledgeable on the ethnic problems in Guyana. Let us follow the Kwayana partition suggestion of 1961
The logistics of Partition can be worked out by qualified persons internationally and locally i.e. on the issues on boundaries with ethnic concerns.
I strongly think at this time where the international community is against the PNC government the discussions on partitions is giving the PNC – Granger a decent way out.
In Guyana time for elections is dead and gone; let ethnic groups go their separate ways as Eric Phillips wrote.
What is the problem with splitting Guyana a country so large with a population of 750 hundreds of thousands with agri – land, natural resources and oil all over Guyana? Can the two major ethnic groups agree in principle on some form of partition until permanent demarcation can be drawn up and agreed to and supervised by the U.N. and other institutions like the OAS etc.
The popular opinion that Africans cannot survive on their own is FALSE and PARTITION will prove that African Guyanese can be industrious as any other ethnicity.
Indo / Guyanese STOP this nonsense of courts, recounts and more elections and get the meeting of the minds with Afro – leaders and start the process who gets what and where in principle on partition.
In the mean time because of [ COVID – 19] opposition to rig elections must beat their pots, pans, dental, blow Shankha (conch) each morning for 15 minutes to show a form of protests .
