[] – The Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) says it has taken note of the challenge filed in the High Court against the two term Presidential tenure as provided for in the Constitution of Guyana.

In a release to the media, the Party said that “Guyana is on the cusp of National and Regional Elections. Many challenges lie ahead, the most important being to ensure that the Elections are free and fair. Clearly, this new development is an attempt to throw a spanner in the works.”

The Party said the sponsors of the legal challenge “appear to have a hidden agenda in the real sense of the term other than invoking or blocking the boogie of a third term for Bharrat Jagdeo. The interest of those behind the challenge lies in the darkest and deepest crevices of a democracy comparable to the galleries of Hades.”

The Party reiterated Jagdeo’s disinterest in running for the Presidential Office a third time but said that the former President’s stance seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

“It is now become obvious that Mr. Jagdeo’s assertions fell on deaf ears and that his expression of disinterest in returning to the Presidency notwithstanding, the modern-day Quislings working in close collaboration with the local satraps continue to generate and peddle this absolute nonsense, elevating it to useless legalistic twaddle.”
