Jagdeo had totalitarian power and acted like a pontiff, micromanaging everything to the exclusion of all other parties, political and civil. That is why the PPP imploded and why the destruction of their patronage system has begun. The only nonsense uttered here is from an addled brained fool with little knowledge of the constitution of our country and the scope of power it awards an executive president and how it can be misused by an individual as Jagdeo.quote:Originally posted by Billy Ram Balgobin:quote:Originally posted by D2:you are just plainly nuts. Putin is to Russia what jagdeo was to the PPP. He turned democracy on its head as he sets himself as the pontiff. Russia had a good thing going until Putin.quote:Originally posted by Billy Ram Balgobin:
This is the guy (D2) who condemns constitutional democracy in Guyana and now endorses a similar system in Russia which may not be as democratic and transparent.. Is Russia really a free country? Don't confuse free markets with political freedom.
Jagdeo is nowhere near Putin when it comes to controlling gov't. No PPP leader including Jagdeo has been abled to excercise full political power in the history of Guyana. They have all been pushed around by the PNC and forced to make concessions at the expense of their supporters. Quit the non-sense about Jagdeo being a Putin. Internal fights in the PPP is a different issue.
