Right to dissent with court ruling falls within universally acceptable principles

The right to dissent is constitutionally guaranteed to all. We are living in a dangerous time when some are seeking to deny the most basic of rights, that is the right to free speech, even within the confines of the law. The recent incident of the judgment handed down by the High Court in the Elections Petition is one such. It also proves a growing
Dear Editor, AN abundance of evidence exists in the public domain, which highlights the massive state of contamination among senior administrative ranks in the secretariat of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM). Personnel who have controlled the nation’s electoral machinery, over time facilitated incremental compromise of the accepted tenets of
I write to you to reiterate a known fact that young people are leading the culture of innovation and should be permitted every opportunity to thrive and lead by example. In every generation, a group of young persons emerge as the revolutionaries, the advocates of change, the axis of innovation and the creative thinkers of the day. They would go on
­I recently came across a letter published under the heading ‘Only two survivors now from final Independence Conference’ (SN January 20, 2021). Of interest to me are three issues referred to in the letter. All three issues are of historical significance. First about Llewellyn John. Apart from his participation in the talks in the 1960’s for an inde
By Mohabir Anil Nandlall, SC MP I READ former President David Granger’s exhaustive and exhausting New Year message. It chronicles a compendium of alleged achievements made by the Coalition Government. It proffered explanations, nay justifications, for the rapacious violations of the constitution, the unprecedented abrogation of the rule of law and
On the last day of 2020, former President David Granger in his capacity as Leader of the PNCR provided a lengthy account of his government’s stewardship between 2015 and 2020. Much of it was unremarkable, constituting the standard burnishing of his administration’s achievements while blasting the current holders of office.  What was however re
Ex President, David Granger, should have accepted the President’s invitation to attend the Presidential summit. It is an excellent opportunity to discuss issues the opposition feels warrants addressing. Granger could have dictated the agenda. The former President missed a golden opportunity to bring national healing, transform his image, and boost
Reference is made to the article titled “President Ali defers to ‘ministers’ on support for Int’l oil blocks probe” (KN December 5). I regret immensely that the President chose to be pedestrian on this matter attracting the worst kind of attention, the sharpest degree of suspicion with one controversial development after another surfacing. His Exce
Attorney-at-Law, chartered accountant and transparency advocate Christopher Ram, is of the position that ExxonMobil has cheated Guyana in millions of United States (US) dollars, claimed to have been spent by the oil major. During his appearance on the Kaieteur Radio programme, The Glenn Lall Show: Tell It as It Is, Ram told listeners that, “Their (
Kaieteur News – We are three months after the long-awaited declaration of the 2020 elections, and nine after when the results should have been announced were it not for the boldfaced, senile attempt at electoral rigging and despotism by the Granger administration. While that attempt was, in retrospect, relatively bloodless, something we should be g
THERE has been a lot of talk on squatting, especially in recent times as it relates to the Success squatters. It is not surprising that those who have lost politically are attempting to use this incident, as with every other situation, to send out their scouts of evil to excite people to misbehave and cause pandemonium. One can clearly see how obvi
