Why are you seeing Donald as a scape goat? He is not the main problem. Yes, he could be President today had he governed more responsibly. Had he given in to some of the demands from the majority opposition from 2011. The reason he did not govern responsibly was because Jagdeo was pulling his strings and he did not have the intellectual stamina to take on Jagdeo.
But now it seems Jagdeo still pulling the strings, even of key members in the PNC. Isn't that something!
The PNC is so overjoyed that Jagdeo is back. The bytch has kept all the Indos who seriously hate him off the PPP farm. He also keeps those non Indians who are disappointed with Granger away from the PPP because they hate Jagdeo more.
Pity your Indo KKK blinders prevent you from understanding this.
The man is a gift to PNC right now. He singlehandedly caused the 5% Indos to vote coalition. The man is a gift on a silver platter. All Granger has to do is muddle through...as he is now doing...and draw down on the gift that is Jagdeo.
The power that Harmon has comes from the fact that Nagamootoo is powerless. Why> Because neither he nor the other refugees from the PPP will return with Jagdeo at the head. The AFC cannot stand on its own, as it had no constituency of its own.
I don't think that's really the main problem with the AFC today. The problem is they dropped the strong policy advocacy that they had in 2011. In 2011 APNU brought out their manifesto 3 days before the election. That was a slap in the face of Guyanese, but they scored well with the ethnic votes. When a party can't put together a manifesto it means it has not thought seriously about policies and consistency of proposals. AFC led the way in 2011 putting out its manifesto 10 months before the election. After 2011 the leadership of AFC dropped this approach, so when the coalition came they were just as policy deficient as PNC. They did a better job bargaining for their personal benefits instead of thinking about how to govern. The ACF is also suffering from the PPP and PNC cancer...they can't understand that some people will prefer to think about proposals that are better for the country...that sometimes the party's interest will have to come second, third,...
Guyanese care less about the Manifesto. In fact AFC increased their votes only slightly in 2011, over their 2006 performance. We don't know where their true support comes from these days as they no longer have an independent identity.
It is also blatantly obvious that the AFC represents two factions. Berbice Indians, and upper middle class G/town people of diverse ethnicities. I suspect separation from the coalition would blast this problem into the open.
In fact many of the latter, as well as many in APNU, see the Berbice AFC Indians as PPP men, who have a deep hatred for Jagdeo. They don't seem able to operate outside of a purely Indian context.
