Incumbent Guyanese administration moves into minority government
Though it has moved into government The Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) will move into parliament with a minority, pulling 32 seats, that’s 4 less than the last parliament and 5 if you should count the Manzoor Nadir TUF seat.
Nadir is no longer a Minister and the party he once headed has no place in the national assembly. The PPP lost more votes in the elections, close to 20,000. Some political analysts believe that former President Bharrat Jagdeo played a key role in ensuring that decline with his behavior on the campaign trail resulting in the ppp pulling in 48% of the votes. But the former President doesn’t appear to want to take the blame.
During the campaign, Jagdeo became very abusive on the campaign trail and fired off labels and names at just about everyone who he thought was his enemy and an enemy of the party. He was seen as an asset heading into the campaign but may have ended up being a liability as he declared that he was always in a cuss mode.
