The failure of the AFC to be a "3rd force" has totally undermined the self confidence that a "non tribal" party can be a viable winner, or can even gain enough clout to restrain the two tribal parties.
When last have we heard of ANUG and that Amerindian party. One would think that they would be loud and vocal in using the current PPP/PNC miasmic to attempt to woo Guyanese tired of this 60 year civil war. But nothing from them because indeed they are nothing. A few old heads with no base of support.
