Opposition Coalition unfazed by Jagdeo’s return


By Tracey Khan-Drakes 

Jagdeo[www.inewsguyana.com] The Opposition Coalition says it is not concerned about the re-entry of former President Bharrat Jagdeo to the political arena.

Jagdeo has repeatedly stated that he is no longer interested in a constitutional post; however he has obviously had a change of heart.

Jagdeo’s return comes on the heels of the much anticipated ruling by the (ag) Chief Justice Ian Chang on a court case that seeks to delimit the amount of times a person can serve as President. The ruling is expected on May 4, seven days before General and Regional Elections.

The Former President has strongly distanced himself from the court case matter.

However, General Secretary of A Partnership for National Unity, (APNU) Joseph Harmon believes otherwise.

“We always felt that those were calculated to allow for Jagdeo’s re-entry, he tried to distance himself from it to say he didn’t know about it and that people do it.” Harmon 2

Harmon noted that the Coalition is unfettered by this move by the PPP to include Jagdeo on its slate, noting that Jagdeo is “damaged goods and there is nothing that can redeem him in the eyes of the Guyanese people…his entry could only damage the PPP right now because he has a very bad record of governance in this country.”

Harmon views the move by Dr. Jagdeo as one which is, “seeking to exercise the power of the office of the President from the background…it’s only a few more days that they have in office and after the 12th of May that is not going to be an issues for us, Mr. Jagdeo and Ramotar they will all have to fight to see who will be the leader of the Opposition.”

Jagedo’s comeback to local politics was announced on Tuesday April 07, after the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) presented its list of candidates for the upcoming May 11general and regional elections to the Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfeild at City Hall.

Jagdeo had on previous occasions indicated a lack of interest in returning on the Party’s list after demitting office in 2011, stating that he is not interested in a constitutional post.

‎He has however had a change of heart owing to the demands of Party supporters.

Explaining his decision to return on the PPP/C list Jagdeo said “it was not my original decision to be on list of candidates but Party and membership convinced me to be part of the list of candidates as it would send the signal that I’m fully engaged in the struggle, which I am”.



  1. Fitz Ralph, You tried to be Gaudy, yet Tawdry, living out of Guyana in you sheet rock apartment. You’re such an Ignominious arrogant, Antipathy little creature! Hijackers? You’re so ugly with your spectacles falling off Egotistical face. Just keep your trash for your cheap lifestyle. The countenance of your sordid face sells you out. Keep your Animus self to yourself if you don’t want a discourse.

  2. Jagdeo and his sordid cabal of Hijackers of Jagan’s PPP, have lost their minds.Its a waste of time trying to engage them in a discussion of The Guyana of Tomorrow. …

  3. typical imbecilic idle rhetoric from the intellectually lazy that gravitates towards the ppp, who would like the entire country to believe the bile and gunk that you spew here .

    rank stupidity like what you display here is what keeps them in power but, unfortunately for them and idiots like yourself the people mostly have moved away from bottom-house education and have turned to enlightenment / awareness from other sources, leaving you fools behind to bring up the tail.

    for guyana to become a better place for all guyanese the scourge of guns, drugs, corruption are not the only elements that must be eradicated. dunces and racist bigots must not feel comfortable in our society so the people have to revolt against the ppp / government that practices systemic and institutionalized racism by voting for a government that is serious about reducing the number of village idiots in guyana.

  4. James..dont tell Hawkeye that former comrade leader Robert Corbin was involved in Wismar…Massacre…Dont tell Hawkeye that Granger was big man in GDF when they gunned donk Indians trying to stop their ballot boxes from being taken away..Granger now called them “gangsters” the beauty of all this is the Indians like the Ramjatans Nagamoottoos Ramkarrans Roopnaries sit there in silent and do or say nothing..Dont tell Hawkeye what Nigel Hughes thugs did to Indians on Agricola Public Road not so long ago..

  5. Hawkeye, You went way back while we’re looking forward. Lets see through your eyes a little. Ethnic cleansing by your PNC fathers! Where you all were robbing the Indians chopping and shooting the men, while raping our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters in front of us then bombed our houses. Today you PNC has the audacity to face off. Granger and Harmon was in the army at the time. Greenidge and Green was Ministers then too.
    “Kick down the door bandits” By your PNC fathers. I’ll give you the details bit by bit. Hawkeye, Tell us how your god father Green killed his wife? Hacker, Tell us Why you guys assassinated your own Minister of Education Vincent Alexander? The smartest PNC Indian ever lived. We’ll come to your bankruptcy another time.

  6. pnc now want to pick for ppp who in and who out an who must stay out…i dont understand…maybe big jag is being too loved by the majority guyanese..i dont know whats the pnc beef on this..nagamoottoo fetching a big go-dee for pnc and no one concern..

  7. Why do intelligent people will ever believe the rat. I just want them to remember that the nazi was still hunted down after they had sprinted when they lost the war. We have our own goebbels here. When in the face of certain defeat, he was telling hitler that they are winning the battle. The lunchman and the rat is equivalent to one Goebbels. The days is counting down.

  8. Dr. Jagdeo was keeping to himself all along and was trying to be private, But Joseph Harmon wants to think through his Army boots by repeatedly bringing up President Jagdeo name. So the Champion decided to answer them by coming on the trail.
    Now the strong man will hand them left, right, and CENTER!!!! Bring it on soldiers.
    Bring Felix and Williams too. The doctor will give it to you good and proper!
