As elections slowly approach, Guyanese will be reading about and hearing of the policies the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has in its manifesto, and that will be implemented immediately should they return to office. The reversal of taxes – back to status quo or to a lower level – is one such policy.
These were among some of the assurances given by Opposition Leader and General Secretary of the party Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday at a press briefing held at his office.
Primary focus, according to Jagdeo, will be given to the reversal of tax measures implemented by the APNU+AFC government.
“In that regard you will see, for example, VAT on building material…they put the Value Added Tax on sand, stone, cement, etc. We want people to build more. We don’t want them to pay taxes on these issues. We will remove taxes on those.”
“Exporters are going to benefit also from the removal of taxes on their exports…Who taxes exports? You want your country to export more, earn more foreign currency and your people to work more,” Jagdeo said. “More jobs will be created with the increase in exports.
Jagdeo said that VAT will be removed from farming, mining and forestry equipment.
Farmers also stand to benefit from the removal of land rent, drainage and irrigation fees. Farmers, miners and loggers can look forward to an improvement in operations, he posited.
Reversal of taxes on miners is also promised by a PPP government.
“Guyanese can also look forward to using their phones more with the reversal of VAT on data services offered. The age limit on imported vehicles will be reversed,” Jagdeo said.
“You can take at least 1.2 million off the price of a vehicle simply by changing this policy; this would see car ownership a bit more easy and affordable for persons.
The reversal policy also deals with VAT on water and electricity.
Jagdeo also highlighted the PPP’s plan to ensure that some 20,000 persons will benefit from online scholarship programmes and this will be offered in addition to what is being done at the University of Guyana. An office would be constructed that would facilitate persons coming to apply for online courses.
This policy is aimed at helping persons to access programmes that aren’t being offered at UG.
“The online scholarships is a programme for how people can apply. This will be 20,000 online scholarships, so there will be an office that allows people to apply and this will be in addition to what is being done at the University of Guyana.
“So this would help private education but also help a large number of people to work and to get scholarships in professions that may not be offered by the University of Guyana.”
PPP also plans to have free university within the 4-year period should they be in office. Mr. Jagdeo said, “We’re looking at running the numbers that maybe year two or three we can move into this policy.”
Additional measures are being considered that would see improvement in the education sector. A plan is also being devised that would see measures being put in place to help University students with outstanding fees.
Joint Services will not be forgotten, and this will manifest itself with the restoration of the joint services bonus “and this is a done deal” according to Jagdeo.
Small businesses are to benefit also from grants that would be distributed and this would be done on a larger scale.
“This is our plan for all Guyana, for all our people,” Jagdeo said.
The General Secretary told the media that the party has already begun highlighting its promised courses of action in the form of posters on social media and informative flyers countrywide.

Original Post

I don’t see a single reference to the forgotten people, the poorest of the poor, how to break the cycle of intractable poverty.  I see a lot here for those already finding some traction to make it better.  That’s good, but 30% of Guyanese live in rural abject poverty with no access to proper nutrition, health services and schools for their kids. 

And how about crime. The disciplined services received their bonuses under the PPP but then did not cooperate and even aided and abetted crime.  Today crime is rampant!  what are the plans?

There are a few nuggets in the plan however, I don’t see any ground breaking new ideas to deal with the bane of Guyanese society:  poverty, illiteracy, crime and corruption!

The PPP would do good to look at some of Shuman’s proposals!

The Base just lil cranky this morning. 

Well, I read the entire thing and was sorely disappointed. 

This is exactly why politicians need to move on and let new people with new ideas take center stage.  

What Jagdeo promise there is more of the same we saw for 23 years, zero-sum politics.  PNC no better!  It’s all about check-mate politics!

Guyanese screwed with these two rattlesnakes!

@Baseman I was thinking the same...But at least its good to know at least (last count) 40% of the population is being catered for 

He covering all bases. Here is another 40% of the population being catered for.

https://guyana.hoop.la/topic/p...cipation-celebration

Bull shit.  He catering for the 40% of business people, civil servants, Discliplined service, etc.  He is not catering to the 30% Indian, Afros, mixed living in abject poverty whose children don’t attend schoo.  And the 50% Amerindians who fit that category!

Those proposals lack ingenuity, vision and any out of the box thinking!  Pure stale mauby!

And all Ayuh cheerleaders here on GNI just like he.

Pure bull shit again.  I would assume you highlight the key ingredients and those not worthy of mention are the icing on the cake, nice to haves.  

But this has been the way the PPP ran things for 15 years.   The weakest, poorest invisible people are simply gap fillers!
