  1. I think the opposition killed their chances with the release of their manifesto. Very shallow one with lots of promises and no evidence of how they intend to pay for their promises. PPPC 45 seats guaranteed! The only question is, will the opposition be prepared to accept defeat or will they want to burn down Georgetown this time?

  2. Attention all! The PNC are planning to rig the may 11th Election. 570, 787 persons on the voters list cannot be legitimate.
    Can we remember that the Opposition and Political commentators were writing in Kaieteur news on a daily basis that Guyanese were leaving Guyana by the tens of thousand.
    I hereby appeal to all Guyanese to get your smart phones ready to video any/all corrupt practices by the PNC.

  3. wow..76% of the population is very very old..fuss country in de world i think this might be..granger waiting fuh yall ppp after elections results out not in favor of pnc..
