PPP not threatened by Amerindian political party: Jagdeo lie ta-rass.

Confident that his party has overwhelming support in hinterland communities, PPP General Secretary Bharrat Jagdeo is not fazed at the formation of a political party by prominent indigenous leaders.

Jagdeo said the PPP invested heavily in the development of Amerindian villages and the fostering on indigenous rights. He believes that the indigenous peoples will take that into consideration when they cast their vote.

The political party announced by former Vice Chairman of the National Toshaos Council (NTC), Lennox Shuman is preparing for an official launch in September – Amerindian Heritage Month.

The party is expected to draw major support from Amerindian communities as Shuman intends to champion the rights of indigenous peoples.

The PPP, which traditionally has a strong support base in those hinterland villages, is likely to lose critical votes if those persons throw their support behind the new Amerindian party.

But Jagdeo is not worried. He told reporters at a recent press conference that one has to differentiate between the “mass of the Amerindian people” and a “few individuals” who simply want to form a political party.

“There was an Amerindian party before, remember, GAP… GAP said it was an Amerindian Party in Region Nine and since then our membership in the Amerindian communities [grew]…if you look at our congress, one-third of our delegates were from the hinterland, one-third!” the party’s dominant spokesperson exclaimed.

The Guyana Action Party (GAP) had eventually teamed up with the Peoples National Congress Reform to form the A Partnership for National Unity.

Jagdeo believes when the time comes to vote, Amerindians will look at the PPP’s track record. He cited strides made under the PPP Administration in areas of Land Titling; Community Development; and access to solar energy, healthcare, and education.

The other faces behind the political party announced by Shuman are currently unknown.

The name of the party, its logo, and colors are yet to be decided.

While the party’s intention is to focus on indigenous issues, Shuman said the party will be an all-inclusive party.

Apart from the indigenous party, many other individuals have come forward expressing an interest in forming political parties to contest the general elections in 2020.

The common cry is frustration with politics in Guyana, particularly the fractured relationship between the country’s two longstanding parties – the PPP and the PNC.

Original Post

There was a previous party, the GAP (Guyana Action Party) , led by Thomas Hardy, I believe. His was an Amerindian Party, but his unsuccessful attempts shows how difficult it is to unite the Amerindians, though I believe GAP concentrated on the coastal Amerindians.

Vish,

the Coalition Gov't have majority of the Amerindians in their fold,they are focusing heavily to develop their areas.

Shuman may have a tough road ahead to garner support from their communities taking into consideration it's a new party,we will find out.

I have no problem with an Amerindian Party,there should also be a Mixed Party.That will send a message to the two pea of the same pod.

Jagdeo shooting blanks.

The only other party possible besides an Amerindian, Indo and Afro, is a multiracial party that incorporates ALL Guyanese, somewhat like what Walter Rodney was able to create for a short time....however, I agree, the fight is going to be between the PNC and PPP.

It's difficult to break the bond of the two major groups from supporting their parties,some tried and failed.

The Mixed and the Amerindian are growing and they are the tie breaker.

And if they don't join the coalition before the election, it's possible for them to hold the balance of power.

That was my position regarding the AFC back in 2011.  They needed to be less anti-PPP, more balanced and independent and pick their battles.  They would have been more effective and gain grounds over time.  But Naga was impatient.  The AFC should have stuck with the younger group with time on their side.

I think the Amerindians would prefer to support the PPP rather than siding with Granger and the PNC. I thought the Amerindians always support the PPP.

This is correct.  The PPP has three Amerindian MPs - Allistair Charlie, Yvonne Pearson, and Pauline Sukhai.

AFC = Dead meat party. Mitwah, lets talk AFC.

Natives and Douglas are not Clannish like the Afro vote.  They will NOT stand and suffer, Guyana is now a shyte hole under AFC/PNC.

Bring on the LGE !!!!!

That's PPP bottom house mantra. They hate the AFC for helping to topple them from power.  Remember how dem PPP boys slap up dem Amerindian boys and how dem school children had to fetch wood and water under Priya's watch?

That would be an interesting party.  Let us see.  Slightly mixed blacks who don't want to call themselves "black",  old time "red people," Dougla, buffianda, Portuguese Amerindian mixes. 

I can only wonder what uniqueness all these disparate groups will have to vote in unison.
