AFC promises 20 percent pay-hike to public servants ; cautions against ethnic voting pattern


By Dennis Chabrol(Demwaves.com) The Alliance For Change (AFC) is promising public servants a 20 percent pay-hike if they win the upcoming general election and cautioning that old voting patterns can result in political instability.
“We have already worked out that within the first ninety days, we will offer a twenty percent increase to public servants and it is not an idle boast,” AFC’s leader and Prime Ministerial candidate, Raphael Trotman told recent meeting in the bauxite mining town of Linden.

The AFC’s presidential candidate, Khemraj Ramjattan told about 130 persons that money to pay government workers including nurses, teachers and the police higher salaries would come from weeding out GUY$30 billion in corruption annually. The establishment of a Procurement Commission, he said, would help reduce corruption through substandard work, poor equipment and overpaid contracts. Another GUY$20 billion, Ramjattan said, would be saved by reducing the 21 ministries and 24 ministers to a “reasonable number.” The ex- president’s GUY$3 million monthly pension and other benefits would be scrapped during the first week of an AFC-led administration. He noted that presidential advisors, Gail Teixeira and Odinga Lumumba are being paid salaries of GUY$880,000 and GUY$669,000 respectively.

“We are going to stop all the miss-spending and give back all the money to the public servants in this country,” he added at a public meeting of about 150 persons in Buxton on Thursday night

Government has already signalled that Guyanese will go to the polls in late November. Trotman restated that the 16 percent Value Added Tax (VAT) will be lowered to 12 percent.

The AFC’s prime ministerial candidate also cautioned that Guyana could enter a period of instability if there is no constitutional reform and an end to racial voting.

“Let us prevent the Guyana Spring, let us avoid an armed revolution in this country and can do so by getting up and standing up and voting for what is right in a few week time and avoid that revolution that is going to come if we continue on this path,” said Trotman at the September 24 meeting in front of the Mackenzie Market. He noted that youths in the Arab world have been throwing off the yokes of oppression and dictatorship.

“We in the Alliance For Change do not want to see a war but at the rate at which this country is being governed, we are going to head into a war and none of us is going to emerge as a winner because, as we fight each other, others are going to pour over the border and are going to occupy the space,” he said, adding that Guyana’s population is too small to defend itself.

The time has come, he said, to end 50 years of political polarization and the creation of new order to give power back to the people through decentralization of authority to regions and villages.

Guyanese have traditionally vote along race lines with the incumbent Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP) drawing the bulk of its support from among East Indians and the main opposition Peoples National Congress Reform (PNCR) from among African Guyanese. The PNCR is the dominant partner in an opposition coalition- A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).

This is subject to intense review...there are hidden accounts we understand, lotto funds and other monies available, especially after we slash Gov't fat and corruption...what we are saying is that it could be up to 20%. That we will give an increase is definite. We are still working on exactly how much, and hope to announce a figure before the election.

What numbers they have? How did they arrive at the number for monies saved from corruption? Snake oil salesmen, that is what they are. But I wish them well anyway. You will find throughout the world, whoever ascends to power will closely follow the previous administration's actions and will find excuses to negate campaign promises. Remember, we all know that the PPP thief, however they give back too. With the AFC, we know that it is just another set of seasoned blood suckers looking to bleed the country dry. I believe that the Guyanese people will tolerate the PPP because they know how much they thief and how much they give back to society. With the AFc, it appears that it will be all theif and no giving back.

Savings should be spent for ALL Guyanese, not specifically to public servants.

Uncle D_G, true, but you have to address Govt workers, arrest corruption, create a different environment, improve business climate, stimulate growth and the rest of the society will benefit.

Correct, Baseman.

The question is how??

Hence my continued position, succinctly .. PROGRESSIVE members of primarily the PPP/C, PNCR and AFC need to join together, concentrate on the wellfare of Guyanese and not on the ethnicity of the leaders of the NEW organisation.

This is all the AFC has been working for, one people, with one destiny.

Before this can happen the arrogance that currently exists in govt must end. The PPP can only reset and change will only be ushered in with a new force in office.

Power has absolutely corrupted!

There is no denying this.
