Nevertheless, Shaitan raises an intriguing proposition here.
I'm not spinning for the PPP here or making some idle speculation.
This is what an intelligent strategically thinking PNC would do. You need someone in Cabinet to rival Nagamootoo. Makes perfect sense to me. I'm actually a little impressed. Create an imperial/imperious title for the Minister and raise the Presidency to the rank of a Ministry. Which other Minister would dare cross the Minister of State who heads the "Ministry of the Presidency"?
Nagamootoo may find himself as Minister "primus inter pares" but Harmon is Minister "imperium maius"
You do realize that this is a coalition, and there is nothing which suggests that the AFC is obligated to serve out the entire 5 years with APNU.
So clearly the relationship with have to be managed with Harmon been given the responsibility for doing this.
Just the other day you were screaming that if the coalition wins that Indians would control 2/3 of the parliament. APNU read your rant and so decided not to be stupid. They know fully well that some of these AFC types are PPP men, involved in a civil war with Jagdeo.
It will not surprise me if APNU is playing Machiavellian games between the Trotman and the Nagamootoo factions of the AFC.
