So the PPP cannot win if it remains a "coolie party".
* The PNC is a black party and they just won the Presidency with the help of the AFC.
* Hopefully by 2025 the PPP catch some sense and re-tool---you are right---East Indians alone cannot win elections for the PPP.
* Maybe the PPP may entice the AFC to join them in years to come. Maybe the PPP will offer AFC's Moses the Presidency instead of the Prime Ministership.hahaha
* The KINGMAKER in Guyana politics today and for years to come will be the AFC.
APNU AFC campaigned on the basis of national unity. They at least opened themselves up to the notion of multi ethnic governance and the ball is in the AFCs court on this.
The PPP openly described itself as a "coolie party" so alienated even its usually small mixed and black swing vote.
It is obvious that there are serious factions within the AFC. We will see how it ends up, but Moses might have already served his purpose. He cannot prove what vote he delivered, and we still don't know who the AFCs base is.
