Granger sounds conciliatory tone despite PPP walkout on him

President David Granger on Thursday hoped that the walkout by the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) parliamentarians just as he was about to address the National Assembly would not be a obstacle to “compromise and consensus.”

“Let us hope that despite the absence of the opposition today, we will continue to search for and find avenues for compromise and consensus,” he told the Parliament on the first day of its resumption of sittings after the two-month recess. “The two sides of this House have not always disagreed. They have found common ground in the pursuit of the common good.”

Earlier during the salutations in his address, the President remarked “no opposition” and then went on to say “it seems that some people are still in recess but this is an important time in our lives and we are here for important business.”

Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo Wednesday night announced that the PPPC parliamentarians would not have been listening to the President’s address and subject themselves to be subjected to a lecture on good governance when the President was doing exactly the opposite.

Jagdeo has cited Granger and Minister of State, Joseph Harmon inviting Public Service Commission, Carville Duncan, a constitutionally protected office-holder, to discussions on having him demit office voluntarily.

The President has since suspended Duncan from the PSC until the hearing and determination of his future by a Tribunal that has been appointed to examine whether he should not be removed because of criminal charges he is facing in the Magistrates’ Court.

Former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall has announced that he has already mounted a High Court challenge to the constitutionality of setting up the Tribunal although he still acing traol for allegedly  stealing almost GYD$1 million in director’s fees from the Guyana Power and Light.

        • Gtloyal

          You gotta be crazy or doing some of that stuff with which your presidents used to keep the economy going.

      • ExPPP_Man

        Burnham was not human, he was a DOG. That idiot , even the earth refused his body, just like the sea refused Pharaoh’s body. The two shall rot in hell forever.

        • Col123

          ex man..you need some glasses….Mr Burnham was a leader in Guyana…nothing less…maybe more to others…and where on earth did you get that piece about the Pharoah’s body and the sea????>..Check on the sciences involved in the preservation and mutation of cells…there are some much to learn…and you are way off!!!

        • Gtloyal

          Its good that you PPP are showing who you really are so people can know: Haters gonna hate. Always.
          May God rescue you.

    • Emile_Mervin

      Burnham never left. Just ask Bharrat Jagdeo who used the Burnham Constitution to protect himself against indictments and lawsuits for his myriad acts of violations.

      Granger continues to sound conciliatory, which explains why audits revealing corruption under the PPP are not resulting in indictments to at least recover what was stolen.

      Gullible PPP MPs who are misled by Jagdeo should know that each time they boycott Parliament, they do not get paid. However, since Jagdeo opted to accept his pension (greater than Opposition Leader pay), the PPP boycotts do not affect him financially. This is how selfish this guy is!

      • rudeo

        Indo-Guyanese have other sources of income bro…..give that a thought

        • Emile_Mervin

          Only you can see race in my post! Give that a thought, if you can.

      • ExPPP_Man

        Do you actually believe the things you spill ? No wonder no progress in 28 years. Only time Guyana progress was under Jagster.. like him or not.

    Burch.
    Whose wuk?

    • Col123

      Burch brotha is a malignant PPP and indo hater…let him say his piece in peace…

      • rs dasai

        Col.
        Pax Vobiscum. I do not think Burch hates someone who is not of his same race or ethnic origin. He seems to hate others because of their association with folks whom he does not like.
        We have come too far to hate someone because of their ethnicity. Take one and look at WI pile up some runs.

        • Col123

          WI heading for defeat by an inning…bet a drink of apple cider vinegar… 2 tbsp.. with an oz of pomegranate…on ice…

            Dead wicket…

  • Col123

    Those PPP boys made out like a bandit…did not do much for your lazy azz. You do not have the wit or brains to join them, pillage the taxpayers and live the good life now!… that is all you lazy indo folks can do…sit back and complain when the smart folks are filling their pockets…

  • Col123

    Hey…you have issues with “PPP negro lackey”…so…what about those indo PNC lackeys?…why can’t folks make a choice with out being called names?

    • Reality 2015

      You see if they were respected and not used they won’t be called names. He is before the court for less than a million while the other guy is gone with how much?

      • Col123

        Yes..but remember that life is a circle, starting with a zero like formation… evolving into a much accepted circle…the value is determined by what it represents…or what is on either side of it…

  • Gtloyal

    Is that what you learnt in the PPP? Is that what you guys do? No wonder the people talk about your leader.

  • Gtloyal

    Thanks for informing us that the PPP (leaders?) see some “MEMBERS AS THERE DOG SH##>”, even though its hard for me to believe. Anyway, if you say so … (and it’s t h e i r, not there)
    What about the guy who declared recently that he was black? Do you also see him as such now that he is black and still a member of your party?
    I can only deplore this and find it unacceptable but then I know its your standard.
