That who the Gods want to destroy, they first make mad.

Dr Randy Persaud: The Alliance for Change (AFC) is in big trouble because its main partner, the PNCR, now has a leader who was ‘elected’ in a deeply flawed process.
No one is hiding behind curtains making these claims. To date, all reports on the 16th Biennial Congress where Mr. Corbin was ‘elected’ have shown that, among other transgressions, dead people casted ballots.

My ‘friend’ Freddie Kissoon even predicted that Mr. Corbin would walk away (my words) with the election because there was no chance that there would be a free vote.

So what do we have here? We have the AFC sitting pretty with Mr. Corbin at various ‘protest opportunities’, photographs and all. But the AFC must realise that Guyanese have long memories.
I know the number 28 is not appreciated in some quarters, but the Guyanese people have not forgotten the nearly three decades of Knowledge Sharing Institute governance offered by the PNC.
The AFC must stand up and let this nation know how it is possible to sit in a joint opposition with a party that just had another flawed election. Does the culture of the AFC condone rigging?

We want a yes or no answer! Are we to understand that the AFC is demanding good governance from the current administration voted in by 54% of the electorate, while sitting at a table with a party that cheats itself?
Mr. Trotman and Mr. Ramjattan must clarify where they stand on rigged elections.
If they remain silent on this, they must themselves heed the adage – “That who the Gods want to destroy, they first make mad.”


  1. By joining the ranks of the PNC, the AFC has shown that it condones fraudulent elections and would now therefore stop at nothing to ensure that this Government is disposed by hook or by crook.

  2. Like aye forget the members from the AFC were once PNC members? The AFC don't condone rigging they are accustommed to it.
