[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and Opposition Parliamentarian, Joseph Harmon says the General Secretary of the governing People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Clement Rohee’s frequent statements, bashing the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), have not gone unnoticed.

He said the PPP General Secretary seems to have developed a weekly routine of criticizing GECOM.

Harmon says in his view and that of his Party, it is an attempt to create conditions for “crying foul” when the PPPis beaten at the next general and regional elections.

“It’s like when you are preparing an appeal for a case that you know you will lose, so they are complaining about GECOM because they know they will lose,” Harmon added.

He reminded that former GECOM Chief Elections Officer (CEO) Gocool Boodoo was objected to many times by the Opposition during the last two elections and he is now the principle advisor to the PPP administration.

“Every week he is finding something new to complain about,” Harmon said; declaring that the APNU is only interested in a free and fair process.

Rohee, over the last several weeks has raised several concerns raging from GECOM’s claims and objections process, to the preliminary and official list of electors to its hiring and training process and policies.

But despite these concerns, the Opposition seems comfortable with what GECOM is doing and the Elections Commission has defended its work; saying it is being done within the constitutional provisions.

Harmon said the APNU is certain of a victory at the next elections and is prepared to contest.

“The People are fed up and will not give the PPP a plurality of the votes to give them any type of government,” he boasted.



  1. Its only 3% of ppl living large in GT, the rest of the country only see all the TICKS another name for POLITICIANS visit and lie to them ever 5yrs, when they want your vote they come with crap and lies, Indians are smart ppl, and they too will vote for a better Guyana, its 2014 ppl are living under great filt all over the country, the country need leaders, when the country is not directed by a DIC-TATE-OR government life will be the same as it was under the PNC/R. The PPP/c needs to deliver what it said it will do, please we do not need the shadow of LFSB,,,the PPP live life, the (c) is a very small part of the cup,its the handle of the cup just look at the party well. Who do the dirty work for the party and who enjoy the life like kings, see at the end of the rains of power who will own the lands,in Guyana and Canada, And in USA,, hope they can live in them, just look at lumbumba ,Sam, bennup, just to mention a few,

  2. Jai…Allow me to fill you in on why some East Indians want to install PNC to power..Remember the Mazaralils Toolsie Persauds and the Gafoors and the Bujwhanis Daswanis dem de alredy rich but when PNC came to power they got filthy rich? Picture this..Glen Lall done rich already from selling Bora at he lil stan in SM..IMagine how much money he and hotel Peg owner pumped in AFC..Millions U say? Then if GECOM Surujbally and GECOM Vishnu Persaud got the thing done set at GECOM for Lall and Badall how much hundreds of millions they stand to gain from a PNC rulers? Ramjattan and Nagamootto will not have to pay back Lall and Badall..Even SN Anand Persaud and Freddie Kissoon even Sharma will get their cut from PNC rule..

  3. listening to joseph harmon gives me the impression that the pnc is willing to do anything to get into government. I believe Clement Rohee suspects that the opposition is planning to RIG the next election. of course rigging and cheating is what they have been accustomed to. If anyone wants to confirm this then ask khemraj, moses, or ramayah.

  4. Harmon de PPP taking a page out of your PNC trick book..For years you PNCites been doing the same in advance to head off certain things you fools knew will come up..Its like Benchack and Fredd Kisser knew long before the garbage thing will move but the two clowns have to make a big deal of it to make it look like they made it moved..PPP must cry from now on to ensure the PNCites in GECOM are not up to their sinister tricks..
