THE ghost of post-elections political violence has been resurrected since the declaration in favour of the ruling Party, according to Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon. “The ante is slowly being raised by APNU’s protests and the media organised diatribe against government’s personalities in the executive and supporters of the PPP/C administration,” Dr. Luncheon told reporters on Wednesday.
He noted that this matter was reflected on by President Donald Ramotar during Cabinet’s meeting, this week, where some manifestation of the challenges and the way in which they were evolving were discussed.
Luncheon said particular attention was paid to the street protests and the night vigils and the recognition that comprehensive efforts would have to be maintained to constrain rising anticipation with regards to the advent of the historic PNCR, now APNU, post-elections behaviour.
As it relates to the call for boycott and the open racist appeal, the HPS said Cabinet recognised that efforts have to effectively and unambiguously maintain a distance from this perverse form of political behaviour.
With regards to the role of the media, he said Cabinet is of the view that there is need for focusing and preserving professionalism among media practitioners and enhancing the role of the regulatory bodies that oversee the sector.
Issues relating to the parliamentary political parties in dealing with matters of mutual interest and governance were also discussed at Cabinet’s meeting. Additionally, Luncheon alluded to the meetings held by President Ramotar with leaders and representatives of the political parties.
“Cabinet recognised the imperative of thoughtful engagements and the important role of Parliament, civil society and other forward thinking personalities,” the HPS said.

Albert let us know when this post election viollence occurred. Who was injured (old ladies, kids, etc by the actions of the police force). Property damaged. NONE.

Should Luncheon not be talking about the PPPs reaction to PEACEFUL protest.

The PPP really needs to accept the fact that New Days have come, and those who they malign will be needed if the PPP is going to get anything done.

So why is the PPP not practising a new ideology of inclusion?

Albert,how long will the PNC keep this name (APNU)for? It rhymes with Sapnu and sound very much like the name of a Bollywood movie.

Fighting within the PPP resulted in the party losing its majority. The elections must not be interpreted as an endorsement of the PNC whose performance at the poll is no better than it was in 1992. Guyana remains a free and democratic country under the PPP. We must not lose sight of this.

blablablablablabla....65% of Guyanese registered voters DID NOT VOTE PPP!
Governments who repeatedly win free and fair elections consecutively, normally be victims of their successes, the populace tend to have a sense that victory is assured, thus complacency steps in.....nevertheless the P.P.P/C administration will continue to be at full throttle, as it relates to address the issue of all Guyanese, especially those of the working class...

Be brave enought to tell us what percentage of the Guyanese registered voters who DID NOT VOTE APNU.
Despite provacation by some, Granger showed leadership and call for calm. So far there has been NO rioting under Granger leadership.

Ramotar has recognized that they would not be dealing with dumbwit, race insticator and classless Robert Corbin. He has to deal with a smart,tactical and a man with class, Granger.

Champion Cuss-man is gone and so is Corbin.

It is clear just by a cursory look at this list that several of those selected are mere political hacks and hangers-on with connections to the King Maker .. .unquote

quote...The recent exclusion of Mr. Aubrey Norton, Nicole Telford and others from the APNU list of representatives is a glaring example of all that is wrong with the system. It is a well known fact that Norton has not had a stellar relationship with PNC leadership and sources close to the selection process have told OVNN that it was this fact that resulted in his disrespectful and unceremonious omission from the list of representatives. Nicole Telford would have easily been a more effective pick to represent NFA than the ailing Keith Scott who is still recovering from a recent stroke. Mr. Scott is simply unable to perform at the very high level required of this parliament and the fact that he was chosen further reinforces that merit was not a major criteria in the male dominated, closed door, selection process.

It was also brought to our attention that one female candidate held a significant advantage because of her close relationship with a very influential party big-shot. If these allegations are true then what example does this set for Guyanese women, for our daughters? The APNU must take a long hard look in the mirror and cleanse itself from elements that bring such shame and dishonor to the partnership".unquote

talking about protecting our daughters,how about jailing green for raping our daughter
Two things occurred in the last elections...

Afro-Guyanese voters who fled the PNC returned home and Indos who favored Moses fled to the AFC. The PNC did not gain any grounds on the PPP. The AFC digged in a little bit but most analysts think their limited success will be short-lived. Nothing else changed.

The PPP is back in office.

The PPP won becasue the Indians were the largest. Now that many have fled PPP rule and others are less willing to vote PPP the PPP now has faced a humiliating loss. APNU and AFC can block the PPP if they so chose.

I am not making claims of excellency about APNU. You are claiming great things about the PPP. 65% of Guyanese do not agree with you.

It is written in the winds of change that these deficits of democracy will rise the ire of people as they begin to question the patristic system we have. The call for the process that selected Ramator will take center stage or should take center stage here as well The PPP cannot cherry pick their what to complain about from among what is habitual to them as well.
