OPINION: Age of the Guyanese antihero

by GHK Lall This is increasingly seeming to be the Age of the Antihero. The many who thought it died in the late 1970s are due another contemplation. That was the era of drugs, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll in mainly decadent America. Today, comes the arrival, fifty years later, of the Guyanese version and interval of its own spawn ...

OPINION: Events in Guyana are moving at auto-race speed

by GHK Lall I usually like to think that I am ahead of the curve, but I must confess that politically-related matters in this country move with the acceleration of a Formula 1 contest. Before a nice relaxing breath can be drawn, there is this frenetic rush of events that crowd calendar, space, time, and mind. First, it is a ...

OPINION: What if the actuality of the presidency? Real possibilities!

By GHK Lall As I pause occasionally to ponder the announcement of that presidential candidate, the first struggle is to overcome the sweeping distaste. Nevertheless, I encourage thoughtful, rational citizens to look beyond their disbelief, beyond the candidate, and beyond cult leader control and ask: what if? What if the improbability of ascendancy to the presidency? What if the actual ...

OPINION: An Irfan Ali Presidency would be a Jagdeo 4th term

By David Hinds First, I am not surprised that Mr. Irfan Ali won by such a wide margin. He was clearly the choice of the PPP’s maximum leader, and the leader’s preference on such matters holds sway with many in the party’s leadership. Second, Ali’s selection indicates very clearly that should the PPP win the election, it will continue the ...

OPINION: Irfan Ali’s selection gives the coalition the election

By GHK Lall Now that it is official, there is a single simple question: who is going to vote for that fine learned gentleman? I can see only diehard PPP supporters coming out to exercise the franchise. And that would be far from enough in the usual razor-thin environment. Even their own people would have serious disbelief and chronic problems ...

OPINION: Political parties should compulsorily reflect Guyana’s makeup

By GHK Lall The no-confidence vote unleashed racial, political, and social forces aggregated and pent-up beneath Guyana’s exterior. A Pandora’s Box of brimstone and lightning immediately pummeled an already rickety, sickly society. Whirlwinds of words, seismic postural upheavals, and the traditional sulfuric spewing in one continuous eruption of molten passion released reflexively and unceasingly. The past three weeks have been ...

OPINION: “Shared governance it must be”

By GHK Lall The pubic releases in the immediate aftermath of the political leadership talks of Wednesday represented a good beginning. The statements from the leaders of both parties were comforting and indicated an awareness that de-escalation of the sharp rhetoric was necessary and appropriate. This can only be applauded. Now the sobriety manifested in what appeared to have been ...

OPINION: The Terrence Campbell Affair – a case of continuing agonies

By GHK Lall The abrupt resignation/withdrawal of businessman, Mr. Terrence Campbell, from the recently announced A New and United Guyana (ANUG) is indicative of much trauma, and the ongoing anguish in political, divided Guyana. I hear him. I understand his position. It is never easy or simple; it is simply one (the) integral aspect of the chronic uncertainties and dark, ...

OPINION: Half+One: Guyana’s Constitutional Crisis

by Vivian Williams LLM Has the government of Guyana fallen or has it not? The chant from government supporters is “let the court decide” and retort from opponents is that the legal argument relied on are simply “foolish”. The law is often referred to as an ass when legal outcomes are undesirable and unexpected. Those who resort to a verbal ...
