[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former Speaker of the National Assembly and Former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Executive Member Ralph Ramkarran says the PPP/C should cease and desist from its shenanigans and concede defeat to its main challenger – APNU+AFC.

The results of the May 2015, General and Regional Election indicate a clear victory in favour of the APNU+AFC Coalition.

The data indicates that out of 410, 391 ballots cast, the PPP/C managed to acquire, 201,457 which is 5,360 votes short of the figure acquired by the APNU+AFC which is 206,817.

APNU+AFC attracted 201, 324 votes in the Regional polls, while the PPP/C got 198, 148 votes.

However despite these figures the PPP/C has maintained it “will not roll over” signalling its intention to challenge the results if declared.

However Ramkarran is not having any of it and insists that the Party and President Donald Ramotar do the “decent” thing.

“The PPP should behave with some dignity, concede, telephone David Granger and offer congratulations, and offer their cooperation for the development for the country,” he said in a recent Facebook post.

With the preliminary results of the 2015 General and Regional Election showing a victory in favour of the APNU+AFC coalition, The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is expected to declare the official results of the election today, May 15 – four days after elections.

This was confirmed by Chief Election Officer Keith Lowenfield who told reporters that should there be no more hiccups in the processing of the data the elections body would be ready to declare the results.



  1. The PPP regime has used the power of the constitution to their advantage to gain. I hope this new administration would look into it an make the necessary amendments. To ensure it will never happen again

  2. Congratulations to both men you both have a long road ahead of you to fix however there is a grate need for you to look at the constitution and amendments to be made if you are going to protect our nation from intruders for (eg.) to become president one must be born citizen not like how Janet Jaggan. Be came president after the husband died then she realized it was wrong what she done she gave t over to her godson Bharat.

  3. It’s time these people step down they have ruined Guyana enough I do think their delay is giving them time to drain the coffers of the country and also preparing to leave in the Dark of night as the pan takes over they should prosecute them by the fullness of the law.


  4. Granger may be Guyana president but Ramotar will will always be the peoples president by a free and fair election

  5. Congrats to APNU/AFC .Donald stop listening to Bharat .Be your own man, concede and telephone Mr Granger on a hard fought victory.Bow out graciously and the world will admire you. Afterall its more a 50/50 votes so for the wheels of progress to continue there is need for Co-operation. Don’t be a sore loser Donald Please move on .God bless Guyana.

  6. The ppp is so evil and vile, they don’t care what signals their action sends to the international community. They are shameless in their clawing and scratching to say in power. The power has made them drunk with bitterness. They surely believe they own Guyana and no other party must rule. The barrat is pulling ramotar strings and he’s such a fool and looks like a fool to go along with it. Shame on the ppp – the most vile, evil party to ever rule Guyana.

  7. Janet wronged Guyana by her authoritarian selection of a callous PPP activist to be the president of Guyana.This decisive step in the wrong direction has now began to destroy the PPP party of the distiguished and honourable founder and leader, Dr. Cheddi Jagan. Now we will have cooperative leadership to put Guyana on the right path to decency and accountability. No more mansions and pools!

  8. Time for change. enough is enough. I congratulate the new President elect and especially the Prime Minister elect Moses Nagamootoo, a stalwart in the political life of the country who was robbed of his rightful leadership through the machination of the late President Janet Jagan who rejected the General Council decision and selected her own President. Best wishes to the new Governnent

  9. And further, David Granger should be sworn in as PRESIDENT immediately after GECOM announcement. Would the news media stop referring to Donald Ramotar as President and call him either ex-President or former-President or just Donald Ramotar.
