It is clear that the opposition and their agents have come to the realization that the ruling PPP/C will be returned to office by yet another landslide victory come 2011 elections, so as a precursor to this eventuality they have adopted a strategy where the credibility of the 2011 elections will be questioned and Government interference in the operations of GECOM is the new rallying cry.
For starters, phase one of this campaign has already begun with talk of an urgent need for collective protest action by the opposition and so called 'civil society' organizations coming from the W.P.A in light of a directive by the HPS to GECOM which was deliberately misrepresented. The W.P.A by the admission of one of its leaders, is in possession of weapons and knows fully well that similar actions by the opposition in the past resulted in violence against Indo-Guyanese citizens and severe damage to businesses, particularly around election time. So it is not unreasonable to assume that this call is a call to battle by the opposition.
Last on the mind of these power thirsty scoundrels is the fact that it is this PPP/C government which saw the importance of having a truly independent GECOM and not one that merely facilitated the rigging of the elections and was subjected to the dictates of the executive as was the case when the PNC was in power.
