As a self identified group they are. They usually get a majority of the mixed votes as well.
This election is between Granger and Jagdeo. Take your pick. An insipid ageing man or a criminal! I hope you really don't think that Irfaan will be the de facto president. When last has anyone heard of this man?
The PPP does NOT get the majority of the mixed vote and TK has furnished evidence of this on many occasions. Over 80% of the mixed vote is sprinkled between the AFC and the PNC. In fact the PNC on its own might get 50% of the mixed identified votes.
Self identified Indians are now around 40% of the population, and maybe a bit more of the voters. The largest group yes but NOT the majority.
I do not have to fall for the prisoners dilemma. I already said I advocate for any other third party to be the sword of Damocles over the heads of both. And Granger is no innocent person given his portioning out our state lands to his people. Further he has done not one damn thing to mediate our ethnic strife but participated in the deepening of it with much of his decisions. The PPP has as much chance if not a greater chance than the APNU which is behind the eight ball from the jump. the competition is for eleven percent of the electorate. Split that between Amerindians and Mixed and the hill is not an arduous hike. My hope is some 30 k votes is leeched away weakening both
