[] – The Private Sector Commission (PSC) has reiterated its concern about the political situation in Guyana and has since embarked on a mission, meeting with all political parties as well as the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).

A press statement from the PSC today noted that the views and discussions were cordial.

“We were impressed with the level of competence of all of our political leaders and what they stood for in their quest to move Guyana forward,” the PSC noted.

According to the Commission, civil society needs to play a role in getting political leaders to work together in order to collectively serve the populace.

“We will therefore continue in our quest to ensure that this cordiality and honesty displayed at these meetings are adhered to when the parties deal with each other.”

The Private Sector Commission has now embarked on meetings with Civil Society actors in the interest of forming a collective to ensure that Guyana moves forward politically.

A recent iNews Poll found that the current political climate could negatively affect businesses, especially during the Christmas season.

Gridlock and uncompromising are the words used popularly to describe the political situation in Guyana which has been this way since the November 2011 General Elections that saw the parliamentary Opposition, for the first time in Guyana’s history, securing a majority in the National Assembly.

After three years of political struggle in and out of the House, President Donald Ramotar moved to prorogue the Parliament ahead of a debate on a No – Confidence Motion brought against his administration.
