[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has noted that contrary to the much vaunted view expressed by Nagamootoo and Ramjattan that the Presidential and Prime Ministerial Candidates of the AFC must be elected at their Party Convention this has not happened.
Further, it is to be recalled that prior to his failed attempt to win support for his “Leadership or nothing” bid within the PPP, Nagamootoo had complained that the selection of the PPP’s Presidential and Prime Ministerial Candidates should have been done at a congress of the Party.
It is widely acknowledged by AFC members, supporters and sympthasiers that Nagamootoo is highly unpopular within his Party and would never be elected as the Presidential Candidate of the AFC were he to stand for such a high office at a convention of the AFC.
It is for this reason that Nagamootoo and Ramjattan have conspired against upholding the pathway to elect the Presidential and Prime Ministerial candidate of the AFC at their convention and have instead opted for the same pathway they had once openly rejected.
The AFC’s strategy conforms to that of the APNU which is to set up Nagamootoo as the gofor for PPP votes knowing that Nigel Hughes is more popular within the AFC but who will not succeed in wooing PPP voters. The strategy therefore is to set up Nagamootoo as the errand boy to woo PPP voters and then later to use him as the delivery boy to deliver whatever paltry votes the AFC may win to the APNU with the hope of increasing the joint opposition’s votes at the upcoming elections.
The PPP is convinced that this strategy will fail and will backfire on both the AFC and APNU.
The AFC is experiencing severe heat on the ground with hundreds of its supporters re-migrating back to the PPP.
The AFC has long been exposed as the hand maiden of the APNU. Thus, the hypocritical and opportunistic expression that the AFC is willing to join forces with the PPP is nothing that but a smoke screen to cover up their nefarious plan to work jointly with APNU at the upcoming election in an effort to grab political power.
Guyanese and sugar workers in particular have long recognized that the AFC is in bed with the APNU and that they have failed to deliver on their promises.
This time around both the AFC and APNU are in for a big surprise by the Guyanese electorate.
