Speak out vociferously against injustices

first_imgDear Editor,I wish to respond to a letter penned by one Mr Zamal Hussain, wherein he highlighted the plight of our electoral system. In that letter, he is of the firm view that the electoral machinery in Guyana, instead of being strengthened, is being undermined to the point where there would not be a fair process. I wholeheartedly support Mr Hussain on this note, having seen the underhand, corrupt way elections have been held over the years here under a PNC administration.History is replete with their corrupt practices. All of these disgraceful acts are well documented for our learning and edification.Whenever it comes to the administration of free, open and transparent process where a selection or election process is concerned, the PNC’s stewardship in such matters stinks to the high heavens.With a PNC-dominated, PNC-controlled GECOM, anything can and will take place to subvert a transparent process. No good can come out of such an arrangement.Recently, the Guyana Teachers’ Union got a jolt of this barefaced, dictatorial fraud when they were told in a hand-me-down manner that their views are null and void when the Government is in charge — a very shocking way to treat persons who are known supporters of the regime.It therefore behooves all right-thinking persons in this country to stand up and speak out vociferously against these grave injustices. Guyanese need to stand up and be counted for what is just and fair.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more
