[www.inewsguyana.com] – Nominated Members of Parliament for the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) arrived in the National Assembly for the seventh sitting of the 11th Parliament on Monday, August 17.

Led by Bharrat Jagdeo, the PPP members made their way into the National Assembly without much fanfare and pomp.

Jagdeo was officially sworn in as Opposition Leader and the other PPP members were sworn in as Parliamentarians.

Since the commencement of the 11th Parliament, the PPP has been absent from the House as a form of protest against the results of the May 11 General and Regional Elections.

  1. ENVY ! ENVY! ENVY! OR SHOULD I SAY IGNORANCE ! IGNORANCE ! IGNORANCE ! DO YOU THINK, CHERYL58 , THAT ANY UNIVERSITY WOULD BESTOW A HONORARY DOCTORATE ON YOU ,OR GRANGER , OR RAMJATTAN , OR NAGAMOOTOO , OR GASKIN ? DON’T BE A FOOL , CHERYL58 . A HONORARY DOCTORATE IS BESTOWED BY A UNIVERSITY AFTER A PANEL OF SCHOLARS SPEND CONSIDERABLE TIME EVALUATING THE CONTRIBUTION OF A PERSON IN A SPECIFIC FIELD OF HUMAN ENDEAVOUR. THE CONTRIBUTION MUST BE OF SUCH A HIGH STANDARD THAT IT MUST EQUAL OR EVEN SURPASS THE ACADEMIC WORK OF THOSE WHO STUDY FULLTIME AT THE UNIVERSITY. DO YOU THINK , CHERYL58, THE AVERAGE PERSON WITH A DOCTORATE FROM ANY UNIVERSITY COULD HAVE ACHIEVED WHAT NELSON MANDELA HAS ACHIEVED? AT THE SAME TIME I WISH TO ASK, IS THERE ANY OTHER PERSON ON THE PLANET WHO HAS CONTRIBUTED TO AN UNDERSTANDING OF CLIMATE CHANGE AS DR.JAGDEO? COME ON,EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE DR. JAGDEO FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL REASONS YOU HAVE TO RESPECT HIS OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS. TO CONCLUDE, DR. JAGDEO NEVER ASKED ANYONE TO BESTOW HIM WITH A HONORARY DOCTORATE DEGREE ,NEITHER DID HE ASK ANYONE TO ADDRESS HIM AS SUCH. BUT NO ONE IS WRONG TO ADDRESS HIM AS DR. BHARRAT JAGDEO.

  2. Did anyone listen to Ramjattan speech? What an un-educated clown who disgrace Guyana to the face of the earth! That man should be thrown into a pit Latrin for his behavior! Calling the PPP “Ayo gon all go to jail fa thief thief”….Can someone send this guy back to kindergarten to learn ENGLISH please before he step foot into the national assembly again? Ramjattan and Moses are un-educated clowns who were never promoted within the PPP because Jagan did not see them qualified. I cannot believe a politician would behave in front of a national assembly with the media present in such a manner-Shame!

  3. Here comes Mr. Potato Head, talk about a face only a momma could love…Bar-rat!!! I wonder how long this fiasco is going to last and when the people will finally run this crazy ball head out of town???

  4. Go on Dr. Jagdeo and members of the PPP and take up your seats in parliament. And yes the APNU /AFC are going to try an outshine you but sadly they don’t have the intellect and charisma to do do. We all know that your track record as president speaks for itself. I can also say that it was because of leadership, vision and insight that put Guyana back on the map. And it is also true that the only reason why the APNU / AFC can tout a 221 billion budget is because the inherited a financially sound economy – thanks to good fiscal management by the PPP government. And to all those individuals that sat on the fence durning election stay there and don’t fall – because of your hypocrisy and the ones that jumped that is why we have a government that is incompetent that is trying to survive of the strengths of the PPP. Hang tight 5 years will go by quickly before we go back to the polls and for a free and fair election this time.

  5. Correction….you are absolutely correct no other politician in Guyana’s history has ever been a crook of that stature….M !!!

  6. The Granger administration is moving way too low on these idiots, they all should be behind bars not in Parliament…..God knows how dirty their hands are.!!

  7. Welcome to Parliament Dr. Jagdeo. Let the debates begin. You are the only one who can debate these crooks without fear.

    We look to you to lead us and ultimately gain control of the house and the executive arm of Government.

  8. All these people would be nothing if they were in a different country…
    Bunch of thieves and robbers deceiving the people of Guyana..
    Still have blackout?
    Roads not fixed?
    Still have bribery?

  9. This is the same Ali Baba and his 40 thieves that said he has no plans to re_enter political life famous last words. Maybe he still has to do some more cussing or slap someone . Bunch of two but hustlers.

  10. .” Let the debate begin!!” Great comment but can anyone from the other side behave as ”honourable gentleman”? They are the most uncouth bunch of who call themselves peoples’ representatives

  11. Idiot, no parliamentarian can be arrested by anyone while they are in that building officially as parliamentarians. So don’t hope. You have no hope with your idiotic suggestion

  12. Please do not refer to Bharrat Jagdeo as doctor. He only has an honorable doctorate that has been bestowed unto him. The title of doctor needs to be achieved. Please note that the late, great Nelson Mandela has been conferred with over 50 such honorable doctorates yet he never refers to himself as Dr.Nelson Mandela!!

  13. DR BHARAT JAGDEO YOU ARE THE CHAMPION OF THE EARTH FOR GUYANA AND YOU WILL BE THE CHAMPION IN PARLIAMENT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DEBATE THE ENTIRE WITH FEAR. GOOD LOCK

  14. This pack of conniving PPP crooks should not be allowed in the People’s Parliament for the simple reason Jagdeo, Ramsaran, Nandalalla and Westford should be cleared of all criminals activities before they enter. I think the Coalition have a great plan, but I think they are moving very slow to reprimand this crooks. Anyway I do hope they arrest them in Parliament and take them for trial.

  15. Welcome to Jagdeo and the rest of the PPP contingent to parliament. None of the others can compare themselves with Dr Jagdeo, none!

  16. Great group, parliament looks complete and smart now….good luck comrades and dont be dragged into pettiness!!! Keep it civil.
