[www.inewsguyana.com] – The main Opposition – the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) is not too happy with the criticisms leveled against one of its executive members, Bharrat Jagdeo by one of its own, Clinton Urling.

General Secretary, Clement Rohee told a news conference at Freedom House on Monday, June 01 that he is disappointed that Urling chose to air his views about the former President in the public domain as opposed to dealing with it internally.

The PPP/C candidate on Sunday, May 31 blamed Jagdeo for the Party’s defeat at the May 11 general and regional elections via a letter where he emphasized that the time has come for the former president to take a back seat if the PPP/C is to be rebuilt. He wrote that Jagdeo’s campaign strategies caused the Party to lose the elections.

When questioned about Urling’s analysis, Rohee said he was “taken back” by the letter, pointing out that Urling should have done the “proper thing” and wrote to him [Rohee].

“I haven’t seen any letter written to myself as General Secretary of the Party by Mr Urling. I would have thought that the proper thing to have been done was to write to the General Secretary to the Party expressing his own views,” Rohee told reporters.

He made it clear that the letter is solely Urling’s views and not that of the PPP/C. According to Rohee, Urling was invited to two meetings recently where candidates were given the opportunity to express their views on the outcome of the elections.

“I thought he would have expressed his views but it appears as though he had a preference…I am disappointed as General Secretary for him to do that.”

The General Secretary pointed out that Urling’s analysis is based on his “perception”, noting that he has been a member of the PPP/C for a brief period.

Urling, he said, joined the Party in mid March, explaining that “it is his perception; he couldn’t have known all those things in such a short period of time…he is not in a position to pronounce authoritatively on this matter,” the General Secretary said.

Meanwhile, when told that former PPP/C Executive Member Ralph Ramkarran shared similar views about Jagdeo and his leadership, Rohee pointed out that Ramkarran never worked in the “belly of the Party” in order to understands its overall operation.



  1. Rick…spy my ass why soon as yo talk the truth yo is opposition Jagdeo was a RAT ill gotton gains son

  2. Even at this last hour the PPP is clinging on to this waste man, all that Jagdeo care about his keeping his Ill gotten wealth and getting a stay out of jail card. I trust that the new government is stern with these corrupt brutes, and hold them all accountable for their corrupt practices.

  3. Are you talking about Jagdeo ? isn’t that the same guy Bruce Golding refer to as a pan handling president? this guy walk all over the world and beg the same white man for his money , who runs Norway ? Jagdeo is a loose cannon who sheds a bad light on Guyana , and Guyanese people , lots of people in the PPP party shares Clinton Urling sentiment , but just too afraid to express themselves , just hold your breath until those 30+ forensic audit come back.

  4. Mr Urlin is the man of my heart,he speaks with no fear nor favour.Speak the truth and speak it forever,cause it what it will.The PPP really think they can mozzled all their supporters but Mr Urlin is one with a big HEART.i compliment u my brother for the strength and courage you have.God is watching over you and just be careful of how you trod in the lion,s den.The PPP is very evil and will definitely undermines you.When you are a child of god,no weapon fomed against you shall prosper.Congats to you once again for you bravery.

  5. Bobby Urling upset yall protest move nah. He really exposing that the protest is a fake for yall to create mischief nah. He mekking everybody know even some of yall wah protesting that the elections was won free and fair and PPP lost free and fair.

  6. Such a thing coming from him is no surprise. He was a spy. A PNC spy. Anyway Jagdeo didn’t make nothing happen. ..the rigging that took place in GECOM was well organized so PPP wouldn’t win and they won’t get a one seat majority. The ABC countries know if they just whistle the CRAPNU would go running but not Jagdeo and the PPP. Stop being so afraid of the man. All of you should concentrate now on how well you will be able to exist in the white man’s world.

  7. Some of you will DIE not thinking for yourselves,PUPPETS all the days of your lives.This is unfortunate,but the reality of life.TOO BLIND TO SEE.

  8. Blessed is the fallen angels Granger,for God knew we had need for this kind of Angel,so God allow him to fall for heaven,to take the country in a time like now.God bless him with wisdom knowledge,strength and vision to lead Guyana into a prosperous respected nation.God also bless his haters ,for the shall see the glory of the Lord in the land of the living.Truth,honesty,justice.

    God bless Guyana

  10. Spyware it is impossible to reason with ignorance
    (Rick) This empty headed fool is not capable of seeing beyond his nose. Dumb Dumbs like him believed that Guyana belong to them- well not so. Dont know where he came up with this fallen angel bull crap, but like it or not we have a new President and ain’t nothing they can do about it. We are finally be rid of thieving jagdeo and his thugs. Long live President Granger. God bless the APNU/AFC God bless Guyana.

  11. Yes it his sole Clinton’s view but it is important. However this issue provides a clear insight in to PPP governance structure. Everyone must toe the party line and speak thru the GS.What a piece of crok for democracy. Lost of freedom of speech and conscience. This is how they muzzled the entire guyanese population. The PPP need to be placed into a barrel name ancient order and roll over a cliff. Can anyone imagined they ran an entire country like this for 23 years and destroyed it.

  12. It’s such a shame when the likes of Clinton Urling all of a sudden realises the massive shortcomings of the party he aligned himself with…So all the thieving, racism, intellectual bankrupt ideas of the parties hierarchy did not sound alarm bells or was the lure of being “offered something”, too much of an incentive.
    Now being soiled goods it will be difficult to worm your way into another political party as you will not be trusted…better to have kept your mouth shut and slink away quietly

  13. Urling’s perception is baseless .Dr. Jagdeo did not cause the pncites in gecom to rig the election. Why up to this time the data used to compile the election results remain a top secret between the PNC Surujbally and Lowenfield?

  14. Mr. Rohee said that persons were given the opportunity at a meeting to express their views. This opportunist chose not to then, but did so in the public domain. This says to me he lacks principles, he’s arrogant and clearly gets some kind of high from publicity and being in the spotlight. And the media enables him. He needs to stick to selling soup

  15. when the PPP/C, now new opposition choose rohee as their general secretary that was a clear sign of degeneration of the party.

  16. Rick i want to believe that you are hurting, but look at the positive side, fallen but not defeated you have a responsibility to be rational.

  17. A party in denial of the truth will continue to be blindsided by changing events. The world goes on, while you continue to live in fairytale land.

  18. This vulture urling, he is a pnc spy , can’t the PPP see that yet . He is one disciples of the fallen angel , granger.
