Amidst his warnings to GECOM, Corbin does some 'jiggery-pokerey' of his own.

It was only recently that Opposition Leader Robert Corbin warned the Guyana Elections Commission not to try any 'jiggery-pokerey. It appears as though Corbin failed to take heed of his own warning as we learnt of Aubrey Norton's bombshell revelations of Corbin's hand in the rigging of the PNC Georgetown District Election which saw the Pro-VanWest Charles, Aubrey being defeated by Pro-Corbin, Volda Lawrence.

Among some of Norton's claims were: that even though 300 delegates were not present on voting day the results purported to show that more than 300 persons voted, persons supportive of Lawrence were in possession of multiple ballot papers, there was no roll call before the votes were cast and as such there was no way of knowing how many delegates were present, more ballots than delegates were printed, the list was padded as he had cause to complain before the actual day of the elections about the Brickdam group, which Lawrence and others claimed had a hundred members when he knew it had just about 30. He claimed that "Phantom" groups were created so as to pad the voters’ list.

Boi Corbin, you beat all! Despite years of under use you have not lost one bit in the art of 'rigging' garnered from all those years of being at the helm of the PNC's rigging machinery! Dis is more than 'jiggery-pokerey'!


  1. Just a few weeks ago, Norton was insisting to Can West Charles that the process was democratic, as he did as well with Team Alexander. Oh ironies of Ironies indeed!

    Norton, this one is dedicated just for you and all those like you who, with your willingness to turn a blind eye to blatant wrongdoing, have been the albatros around Guyana’s neck:

    “In Germany, they came first for the Communists,
    And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
    And then they came for the trade unionists,
    And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
    And then they came for the Jews,
    And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
    And then… they came for me…
    And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”–Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

  2. Norton your complaints about bogus membership are just “red herrings”. It was you Mr. Norton who only a few weeks ago proclaimed how democratic the process was. It was you Mr. Norton who was refusing to issue membership forms to anti Corbin supporters. It is not Volda that is being used it was you that was used, trouced and then disposed of.

  3. The PNC needs a very long ‘Time out’in the corner. You guys are behaving like kids fighting in the sandbox.

    After all of this finger pointing about rigged votes, I don’t see how this political party can begin to organize themselves, in order to successfully compete in a general elections.

    Turn off the lights folks this party is over…It’s been over for a long time now.

  4. Norton should be glad he got so many votes. Years ago, as a returning officer, at a certain polling place in Berbice. The PNC was challenged by a Group called PEP in a local government election. The night before the election LFSB asked them to withdraw. They did not. Half an hour after the polls closed, the PNC was declaired the winner, PEP received TWO VOTES. Apparently PEP’s members nor their family members did not vote.

  5. Yesterday I had a really good laugh at the PNC, Today I just feel sad for these selective clubbers of pathetic has-been’s trying to hold onto what no longer exists for them. Corbin, has lost the one thing politicians vie for the most ‘Public respect’ Under his (corbin’s) watch this club has become non-essential to Guyanese and our life. Go Corbin Go before you embarrass yourself.
