The party that wins a majority or a plurality of the votes wins the presidency and gets to form the government. No post-election coalition is constitutionally possible, and certainly none, not even a formal/informal alliance, can be formed with the aim to seize the presidency and the government or to unseat the government.
The PPP/C likes it this way, even if they were to receive less than the 50 percent of the votes, they will still get to form the Government, the problem is that without a majority, they will very well not get things done in Parliament, but there is an easy way to get by this...parliamentarians has been known to cross floor. The PPP/C can get a few to come over to their side if the price is right.
Oh yeah, there's never a lack of bribery when dealing with the PPP.
It's called PERSUATION, INFLUENCE and COLLABORATION - expressing each other's interests for the good of the country.
Therefore, if there is a minority Govt., the Govt. will try its best to reach agreements
like constitution reform abolishing the executive presidency? How about direct representation?....I hope it happens so we open an criminal investigation on the spending of the wildlife funds, lottery funds, Amerind residual funds etc. Then there is the matter of hiring all of those implanted pickneys in cushy jobs!
