OPINION:Another futile attempt in defence of election fraud in Guyana’s 2020 elections

OPINION: Say what you may about the PNCR. It’s a more democratic Party than the PPP

OPINION: Whoever wins this election, all of Guyana loses; a call for a government of national unity

By Moses Bhagwan and Eusi Kwayana We write as two Guyanese who have come out of the leadership of both major parties, who have lived through the violence of the 1960s, and who have been following with deep sadness and alarm the news of the outbreak of conflict following a mainly peaceful electoral campaign and voting process in our beloved ...

OPINION: Oil contract: priorities were never about money, but access and security

By GHK Lall As the flurry of articles cascade on citizen and country relative to the NGO report on the negatives and failures embedded in the ExxonMobil deal, I hear and read of much passion, more quarrelsome noises, and the usual selective acceptance and rejection of a whole host of surrounding facts. Those facts are the realities with which Guyana ...
