I immediately texted my friends in SE KS and warned them of half-dollar sized hail before it hit last night. They were grateful. I told them about your site so they can use it for their weather updates as well. Also, thanks for the forum where folks can freely say what’s on their minds.

Former PNC stalwarts join PPP protest

first_imgLongstanding People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) stalwart and Member of Parliament, Dave Danny and his son joined scores of People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) protesters outside the Ministry of the Presidency on Tuesday as they continue to mount pressure on the coalition Government to resign and call elections.Dave Danny Jnr at PPP/C’s protest on TuesdayDanny Senior, who served as a PNCR parliamentarian in the 8th and 9th Parliament, and his son, Dave Danny Jnr, who announced his resignation from the party last week, held placards calling for elections as they marched outside the President’s Office.Speaking with reporters, Danny Snr related that he joined the protest because he is tired of Government’s excuse for not adhering to constitutional rule.“The Constitution is clear that [within] 90 days, elections should be called and the excuse they having about GECOM (Guyana Elections Commission) not being ready is just an excuse to prolong [the delays of holding elections]… You have to be able to adhere to the rule of law but people don’t want to obey the law, and they expect you to obey the law. So the reason I’m here is that I would like to see the rule of law [adhered to] and if you don’t practice what you preach then you gotta be a hypocrite,” he asserted.Meanwhile, his son, Danny Jr, echoed similar sentiments, declaring that the caretaker Government has no respect for the country’s Constitution.“We see that the Government and the President clearly has no respect for the Constitution, they’re just sitting there. I don’t know what they waiting on… this cannot go on,” he noted.Former PNCR parliamentarian Dave Danny speaking with reporters on the sidelines of PPP’s protest on TuesdayAccording to the younger Danny, Guyanese are frustrated with the state of affairs in the country caused by the actions of the coalition Government.“People are suffering… and people are preparing to run out of this place because people are afraid of their lives…,” he asserted.Only last week Danny Jnr made headlines after announcing his resignation from the PNCR, ending three generations of commitment and dedication by his bloodline to the party.In a video shared on social media by the PPP, Danny Jr said he left the party because of the many downfalls of the PNC-led coalition Government but most specifically, its failure to deliver on their promises made in the manifesto.He had stated too that the APNU/AFC Government continues to ignore the plights of its supporters.“It saddens me to say the PNC I knew is seemingly allowing wickedness to prevail, the root of their denial and arrogance stems from their disconnection from society. I know that there are many in the PNC, including cardholders and supporters outside, who are also displeased with the party and by extension, the performance in Government. I have spoken to many supporters who complained that certain Ministers do not have 10 minutes time to spend to listen to the various concerns, the recent scrambling by Government is comical for supporters cannot be hoodwinked.”The younger Danny is a Government Regional Councillor in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) and a former PNC Youth Executive.last_img read more
