Voice of ABC brings mea­sure of com­fort

Stabroek News - - LETTERS -

Dear Ed­i­tor,

I would like to thank US Am­bas­sador Perry Hol­loway for his state­ment on the im­passe cre­ated by Pres­i­dent Granger’s uni­lat­eral ap­point­ment of the chair­man of GE­COM.

We have a large Guyanese Com­mu­nity set­tled here in Queens, New York. And, frankly this ap­point­ment has raised our anx­i­ety lev­els sev­eral notches. It is not just the man­ner in which the ap­point­ment was made, namely, out­side the pro­ce­dures laid down by the con­sti­tu­tion, but it is largely due to the his­tory of fraud­u­lent elec­tions in Guyana - all per­pe­trated by PNC gov­ern­ments of the 1960’s - 1980’s. The last thing this coun­try needs is an­other fraud­u­lent election.

The voice of the ABC and EU coun­tries com­ment­ing on this mat­ter - no mat­ter how neu­tral - brings a mea­sure of com­fort to all the scores of thou­sands of con­cerned Guyanese peo­ple who live abroad. We know the ABC & EU folks are watch­ing and feel rea­son­ably con­fi­dent they will not al­low an­other fraud­u­lent election to take place in our na­tive land.

For this we thank Mr Hol­loway. My thanks also are now ex­tended to the Cana­dian High Com­mis­sioner Ms. Chatterjee for her state­ment on this mat­ter pub­lished in SN. Please stay in­volved. Yours faith­fully, Mike Per­saud World Union of Guyanese for Democ­racy Queens, New York
