President Ali loses nothing by reaching across political divide

It is okay to give someone or a group of people compliments at times. But continuously pandering to people is unhealthy as it boosts their ego and diminishes your self-esteem. 

Such a relationship whereby you need to pander to people is not a healthy relationship as it leaves you feeling drained and exhausted while portraying to those being pandered to that they, and they alone are the important ones. 

A healthy relationship is one whereby there is trust, mutual understanding and mutual respect.

Which brings us to the topic at hand: dialogue between President Irfaan Ali and main Opposition Leader Joseph Harmon.

Even though Joseph Harmon refuses to acknowledge the locally and internationally recognised PPP/C Government of President Irfaan Ali it is up to President Irfaan Ali to reach across and heal the rift as Irfaan Ali is President of all Guyanese including Joseph Harmon.

President Irfaan Ali loses nothing by reaching across the political divide. Reaching across the political divide is not pandering.

It is clear from his actions that Joseph Harmon erroneously believes that it is foreign powers that put the PPP/C in Government and as such he disrespects the majority of Guyanese voters.

There is a lot of work to be done to heal the ongoing rift in Guyana’s politics.

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
