The People’s Progressive Party Civic’s (PPPC) Vickram Outar Bharrat on Thursday replaced Charles Ramson Jr. who recently resigned to take up a British scholarship to pursue studies in oil and gas.

Bharrat took the oath of office before the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs after his name was extracted from the PPP’s list of candidates through the Guyana Elections Commission.

House Speaker, Dr. Barton Scotland invited parliamentarians across the political divide in wishing Bharrat well in his tenure as a law-maker.

Ramson Jr; in his resignation to the Speaker, had expressed concern about what he had termed the failures of the APNU+AFC coalition government to work towards national consensus and having youths play a greater role in the decision-making process.

      We can only hope Emile, we can only hope that his “follow-ons”- Rohee, Irfan, Priya, Donald and the other nepotists – also are not just replaced but booted un-ceremoniously for what they caused to happen in Guyana , the emergence of the PNC a the Govt. of our Country.

        What is so wrong with the emergence of the PNC as the government of Guyana????…every thing with life, including the entire country of Guyana, requires a period in purgatory!!! It is a chance to connect all scientific elements with a religious experience!!!!.

          Col123, here is one on purgatory and Guyana for good laugh!!!.
          When people die they go for judgement. Saint Peter, the chief disciple is the record keeper would direct the person to heaven or hell based on the person’s karma. Here was this man who did not wait for St Peter’ s direction. He went on strait to the road to purgatory. When St Peter called back, the man replied that he knew he was going to hell because he had done rape, murder and theft. However, when St Peter asked which country he was from, the man said he was from Guyana.
          St Peter then directed him to the road to heaven because he had already spent his time in purgatory. Have a laugh
          I apologize for deriding our beloved country, but sometimes you feel that there is not much for you to achieve living in Guyana.

            I know there is hope some where, but with all the Guyanese in heaven, I am asking god for at the bar in hell!

            St Peter was referring to 1992-2015,this is the correct timeline.

            No, it was a joke in the 1980’s, the Burnham’s days

  • Col123

    Hey chap, I still represent the face of ethnic cleansing in the 60’s Guyana. BUT, I am grateful to Burnham for making that possible…
