[www.inewsguyana.com] – A large number of iNews voters do not believe that political discourse in Guyana is focused on the future of the country.
In response to the question, 85 percent voted ‘no’, 12 percent voted ‘yes’ and a mere three percent were undecided. From all indications, it is evident that the nature of political discourse in Guyana needs revamping.
Recently, Opposition Leader, David Granger revealed that he has no interest in any future meetings with President Donald Ramotar on the issue of Local Government Elections; saying to do so will be “pointless.”
Granger’s disinterest comes following disclosures by the Head of State recently that he will not set a date for LGE now; explaining that to do so would be “foolish” of him and he would be rightly ridiculed.
This followed a meeting with Granger at the request of the President which Granger had reported with optimism that Ramotar was more prepared to name a date for LGE.
Additionally, the government and the combined Opposition are still at loggerheads when it comes to the amendment of the country’s Anti – Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Act.
Several meetings between them provided futile and the amendments to the Act are still in limbo.
