Recently, there have been increased calls for shared governance in Guyana. These were included in the USAID 2021 Expert Report on Guyana and the Republic’s 52nd Anniversary Message to Guyana’s President from the President of the United States.
Because your newspaper is playing a leading role in advocating for this very important inclusion to any plan to move Guyana forward, I am taking the liberty of sharing with you, a presentation of my thoughts on this topic. Unlike most of the views expressed in the media of the need for constitutional change to effect inclusionary governance, I share the view that it can be achieved without constitutional reform.
I do admit that I have shared this with others including members of both sides of the political divide but to date it has not come up for discussion anywhere. My objective, as a concerned patriot, to share it with you, may have been born out of this disappointment.
The historical reality of Guyana’s politics calls for exceptional leadership which regrettably, in my opinion, hasn’t been forthcoming from among the ranks of our politicians.
I do not particularly want to be identified in its authorship since I am not a social commentator. As I mentioned, I am just a concerned patriot. I therefore offer this presentation to you for use in any form you think may serve some purpose.
