[www.inewsguyana.com] – The accusations leveled against the ruling People’s Progressive Party (PPP) by A Partnership of National Unity (APNU) of using state resources for political campaigning, race baiting and vote buying are not sitting well with PPP’s General Secretary, Clement Rohee.

He described the accusations as “cynical concoctions”, which he says have no credibility and respect for Guyanese and called on Leader of the APNU, David Granger to cease using the State resources he is entitled to.

“If Mr. Granger is so concerned about misuse of state resources, he should abandon and return all the resources he’s currently using as well as the benefits he receives from the State as Leader of the Opposition,” Rohee told a news conference at Freedom House yesterday, December 08.

When asked to respond directly to the accusations leveled against the Party, Rohee claimed he has no idea what the Opposition Leader spoke about.

“I have no idea what Mr Granger is speaking about. I believe this is just an attempt to raise a red herring because there’s nothing much for them to hang on to,” the General Secretary said.

On Friday last, Granger accused the PPP, including President Donald Ramotar of several breaches to the electoral practice among which is the use of state resources for its election campaign activities.

The Opposition Leader says a complaint has already been made to the Guyana Elections Commission but registered his fear that these complaints may not be investigated by the police accordingly under the stewardship of Rohee who has oversight for the police force.

Granger accused the government too of fear mongering, race baiting and vote buying.

On this note, President Ramotar at a recent press conference said “its absolute nonsense… that’s totally not true, they are fishing.”

The President reasoned “I think they realize that they are losing ground and they are trying to find a way.The ruling Party has never denied that it has started its elections campaign in wake of early general and regional elections.



  1. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class.

    That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on this plan. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A….” (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the
    ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that communism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    THE PNC now called APNU has failed us.
    They are now being supported by the AFC.
    If they get into power, we are heading for doom.

  2. The idiocy of this guy!! Why don’t they do this then!
    Let ALL (including you dunderhead and your acolytes) of you cease using state resources, because there is no functioning parliament!
