[www.inewsguyana.com] – Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Jose Miguel Insulza, in a statement today, urged the Guyana Government and Opposition Parties to redouble their efforts to reach an understanding and compromise following the prorogation of Guyana’s Parliament by President Donald Ramotar yesterday.

Insulza said he hopes that parliamentary debate could be resumed in this 10th Parliament in the shortest possible period of time.

Ramotar prorogued the Parliament yesterday, with immediate effect, for a maximum period of six months, which the OAS Secretary General said he observed has occurred within the framework of the country’s constitution.

However, the head of the hemispheric Organization stated that, in a democracy, an efficient functioning of the Parliament allows for checks and balances and for the voice of the people to be heard.

He pointed out too that since the last elections in November 2011, Guyana has had a split governance system “with the executive controlled by one party and the combined opposition having the majority in Parliament.”

“This situation presents both challenges and opportunities for all parties in Guyana to work together for the greater good of the country,” Insulza added as he urged the political Parties to compromise on the major political and socio-economic issues facing the country.



  1. Andrew, you’re asking Guyanese to question your sanity. YOU SAID GUYANA IS LEFT WITH BRAIN DEAD PEOPLE? REALLY!!!!! Are you serious? Are you saying Moses brain dead? are you saying Ramjattan, and trotmam brain dead? some of your cronies believe that Greenidge, Granger,Green, Rupert, and the Hughes’s are brain dead! But I really don’t share that views. Please teach us somethings we don’t know.

  2. bruck donk car u calling it communism socialism and yet you are able to blog on an independent freemedia operating for inside guyana…think before you type again..thiank of in your own words communism & socialism and then think of the free media you blogging on..i just want u to think..

  3. All who happy with the state of Guyana the world is happy for you, Guyana is left with brain dead ppl, all the smart ppl left and working all over the world, the best teachers,nurses,engineers,doctors, left and we are now leaning on quacks, medical studients from gods knows, what should happen just like Donnald did duck and hide for 6 months,the US embacy should close its doors and see what will happen, and they should round up all them that prais the PPP and getting wellfair and wick,food stamps and medicare,send them back track to the nice Guyana, just take a look at what a bunch of criminals thiefing and grabing all they can, we will all see how many more will spend 25 grand US to go back track, drive along berbice the PPP strong hold and see how many house empty, and essequibo same crap empty, look at the names on any flight mamifest and you will see is all PPP support running,

  4. CAR are u in the US after having been lured there by TV? You are an infidel. Stop trying to drive this car from the backseat. If you care what happens to us Guyanese here in Guyana and want to help you would NOT have left Guyana at all to begin with. So by all means SHUT UP.

  5. People of Guyana, you need to stop PUSSYFOOTING around the government, get the UN involved and let Ramotar understand that Communism and Socialism are dead. You people have allowed this lawlessness, they introduced television to you, and you have lost all perspective on your country, and focusing on America and the rest of the world, while they, your government is “screwing” with your future, while you’re distracted. And he’s got the BALLS to tell Guyanese here in the US, they need to return home and assist with the economy? Here’s why that ain’t gonna happen: In the USA, a Guyanese minimum wage employee makes more in a week than most of your government employees make in a month; Your crime situation is out of control, not that crime is not here in the US, but at least the Cops respond without asking for a bribe; the police force have turned a blind eye to the drugs and gun running for so long, that’s it’s out of control, they believe that arresting and sentencing a few people for marijuana use is the solution? I haven’t read any news where they have arrested the drug dealers, and I don’t mean the penny pushers, I’m talking the BIG GUNS, the traders who are peddling on the $$$$$ scale. I know some people will argue that all the above happens all over, but that does not make it right. Guyana is too small a country for this crap. WAKE UP GUYANA!

  6. Mr. Jose Miguel Insulza, You’re in order. Congratulation, good call! Guyana can indeed do with dialogue, fairness, maybe a fair mediator. NO war, we need peace, we need progress, we need continued development and growth. I know there are many other Insulza’s out there who will come forward to promote peace. THANK YOU SIR!!!
