OPINION: New faces on the political horizon -a primer

by GHK Lall I note with some interest the recent announcement from a new voice about political interest for leading at the highest level.  What I offer on this and any similar future development speak not to the merits or otherwise of any such new figures, but to the stark realities sure to be encountered by those visions and ambitions.  ...

OPINION: President Trump’s electoral reaction mirrors that of  Guyana’s own post March 2

by GHK Lall I am writing this very early, but I think that Senator Joseph Biden has won the race for President of the United States.  I did not vote, but I recognize him as my president.  Anything else, or anyone else, would be the highest injustice, the exemplification of wrongdoing and for the worst possible purposes. My first recommendation ...

Letter from Sarah-Ann to Guyanese — American Ambassador

To the people of Guyana, I write to you today to thank you for hosting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week.

OPINION: Inauguration address, my take

by GHK Lall I did something that I have not done for over forty years, I took the time to read President Ali’s address, the whole thing, as shared with me by Demerara Waves.  Jimmy Carter was the last beneficiary of such interest on my part.  This is some of what I read and what I have to say. Many ...

OPINION: Guyana elections 2020: The Long Good Bye

By Paul Sanders – New York, July 2020 In the beginning was the word. The writing was on the wall. Scribbled by the PPP after its downfall, the APNU-AFC followed the script of self-destruct; conceptualized and orchestrated its own demise. From the very day of its inauguration. How stupid can that be? A collaboration that was forged to dismantle the ...

Introduction The geo-political situation in the region and Guyana-US relations have attained a new level of intensity and focus amid the Exxon/Mobil contract.
