PPP will win free and fair elections

PPP will win free and fair elections

Dear Editor,

A poll conducted by this writer for the North American Caribbean Teachers Association (NACTA) earlier this month showed the Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) winning the next general election if it is free and fair. But a large majority of voters also expressed fear that the next election may be rigged noting that the People’s National Congress (PNC) – which now dominates the coalition Government – never allowed a free and fair election or its sole referendum (July 1978) when it governed between 1964 and 1992.

The latest opinion survey – with 430 respondents reflecting the demographics of the country – shows widespread dissatisfaction with the governance of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition in virtually every area measured. And a large majority also said the Government and the country is moving in the wrong direction. Voters say the coalition has turned out to be the exact opposite of their expectation when they voted out the PPP for its arrogant ways. Voters say they can’t wait for the next election to send a clear message to the PNC dominated coalition.

When asked if a general election were to be held now, which party they think would win, 57 per cent (including many who said they will still vote for the coalition) said the PPP is most likely to get the most votes. But it is not clear the PPP can command a majority in Parliament as many (who previously voted for it) are distrustful of it saying they fear the party could return to its old hubristic ways of governance. Many voters said they feel betrayed by the Alliance For Change for jumping in bed with the PNC and not demanding the enforcement of the Cummingsburg Accord. These and other voters say they would support a genuine “third force” to serve as a balance for good governance, which the AFC has failed to carry out because of political opportunism. So there is scope for a third party.

The poll’s findings show voters are divided on who should be the Presidential nominee of the PPP. The overwhelming choice, among PPP supporters, as Presidential candidate is former President Bharrat Jagdeo with the former President having some support among disenchanted supporters of the AFC and APNU. But if he is unable or unwilling to run for the presidency, party supporters are split on the prospective nominee among Gail Teixeira, Irfaan Ali, Anil Nandlall, Frank Anthony and others with no overwhelming favourite rivalling the popularity of Jagdeo.

Yours truly,

Vishnu Bisram

Dr. Jagdeo may continue to be General Secretary of the PPP and have a suitable candidate to contest the next General election. In terms of rigging, it is clear that Granger took the opportunity since assuming office to focus on what Guyanese fear the most....Rigging or big brothers involvement in our election process.

Polls dont mean diddle squat.  Look at America

Polls in an elections followed the statistical projections that...

... "elections are predicted on the probability that an event will occur nineteen out of twenty times".

That means that there is a one in twenty chance that the other nineteen events will be wrong.

The last US elections show that the one in twenty change did occur; hence a great surprise.

Also, there are pending issues on possible interference by foreign powers that may have effects on the current outcome.

One thing is indeed correct ... polls indeed mean little or nothing since the votes actually cast at an election is the only result that counts.

Goat ain't bite we over hey. Diddley squat or not, we get Trump, the big grabber. 

A president should not act like a little spoiled brat who lost all his marbles. Some day a bigger bully will bytch slap him so good, he will be bleeding from wherever.

Especially when they are Vishnu Bisram polls. The man predicted a PPP landslide win in 2015 like DG and his 60% victory chant.

he went to 2 ppp bottom house meeting and tell the nation the ppp will win the election

But given that APNU/AFC won by a scant 5k votes and much of their people are quiet angry with them, and will likely stay home, I will concede that a PPP victory is most likely.

Too bad for Guyana as Barbados can no longer provide an escape root for them. Nor can Trinidad.
