Dear Editor,President Jimmy Carter’s recent intervention in Guyana’s domestic politics is a refreshing development. It shows that the Carter Center and the US Government are closely monitoring Guyanese politics. Even more importantly, they are following issues of governance, or rather bad governance, which prevails today under the Coalition Government.The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has done a remarkable job in exposing all aspects of mismanagement; incompetence; corruption; and significantly, abuse of power, violations of law, the Constitution, and several undemocratic decisions and actions taken. It appears that it is the latter conduct which is causing the West the most trouble. No doubt, free and fair elections would be among the priorities of the West.Every Guyanese who is interested in a better Guyana would find this pleasing.The PPP needs to continue the excellent exposure of these kinds of actions on the part of the Coalition Government whenever they surface.The two persons whose work in this area stand out are Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and Anil Nandlall. Jagdeo’s press conferences have been very incisive in revealing the level of corruption and incompetence in the Government. Nandlall, almost single-handedly, has been very effective in the press and in the courts in exposing the lawlessness, breaches of the Constitution, and significant violations of democratic practices committed by the Government. The fact that he is representing the cause of persons across the racial divide and has been able to get favourable rulings from a Judiciary believed to be unfriendly to the PPP adds a tremendous amount of credibility to the PPP’s work as an opposition party. Nandlall’s contributions have been invaluable.However, as 2020 gets closer, the PPP cannot afford to become complacent. They must press forward even harder, in order to get more international attention. This will require greater contributions from other leaders of the party and Members of Parliament (MPs).Now that the PPP is about to name its Presidential Candidate, many aspirants have finally crawled out of their shells. It is a pity that they were not so active for the last three years; but it is never too late. Whoever the candidate is, it is hoped that those who are not selected will continue the hard work.Yours truly,Khal Morgan
