SUMMARY. AT DEC 15 RALLY
Refresher on Guyana 1980 Constitution.
Burnham created a presidential-style parliamentary model, emphasized domination of one party ( not going for the communist model of a vanguard party and prohibiting others), strengthen socialist principles
consolidated power in the executive branch. He centered his socialist creed around cooperativism. That is not the constitution we have. but even that one relied on westmister syle in its shaping. The one we have now merely stripped the green land of Guyana intro, the railing against imperialism and its socialist wording; it is in essence the same one.
