Hey hey hey...TK want Minista wuk, TK leh leh leakin foh minista wuk

Hear de man now supportin de new political party from Ralph Ramkarran and Henry Jeffrey. Hear what de man seh pon SN:

TK: This is big news. I agree with the focus on constitutional overhaul, but I would settle for some crucial reforms as I have written for dankey years. Let me summarize what I have said several times for over a decade: (i) post-election alliances as a tool to add randomness to reduce the chance of race baiting by the dominant parties; (ii) weakening of the list system by allowing most or all MPs to be elected in constituencies; (iii) given that the parliamentary party's business is everybody's business (their actions and choices have spillovers - often negative - I want to see constitutional mandates for audited competitive party primaries; (iv) to tackle the ethnic distribution problems, I want to see the constitution mandates that the head of civil service must be independent of politicians; (v) further to the distribution problem, all contracts, scholarships, house lots, state-backed loans, and similar state-backed awards must be publicly available for all to see on a central website. I want to see deeper reforms particularly as it relates to the civil service and campaign finance, but I would be somewhat satisfied with these. Only under these conditions will Guyana be a place where independent minds can flourish. Happy Holidays!
