Wholesale Jerseys ” The Indian Day arrival event is in the first week of May

– Political analystBy Zena Henry“You wanted the date; you got the date, now you got to run with it,Wholesale Jerseys 2018,” was the response by Political analyst and former Presidential Advisor Ramon Gaskin as he weighed in on the political discussion following the May 11 election date announced by President Donald Ramotar days ago.The Russian-trained lawyer and political consultant strongly believes that the government will not change its initial election date, but says that complaints about possible clashes with other events such as school examinations could create room for further delays.Former Presidential Advisor Ramon GaskinWhile the revised election date is possible,Cheap Stitched MLB Jerseys, Gaskin didn’t give the idea much thought since he believes that the stated date is well orchestrated to coincide with several upcoming events that will be beneficial to the incumbent People’s Progressive Party (PPP/C) government.Gaskin said that all political parties are in full campaign mode, but events such as Labour Day and the Indian Arrival Day celebrations will be major tools in the ruling party’s mobilisation strategy to take the party straight into elections.The current confusion is that General Elections will be held on a day when students at Secondary and Tertiary levels (University of Guyana) are slated to write examinations. It is felt that many of those at the tertiary level, who might be voters,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, will be inconvenienced.But Gaskin believes that this should not be cause for a new election date since he believes that arrangements should be made to address any possible problems. He said that these students could vote after their exams or before, depending on the time.Secondary schools are sometimes used as polling stations,Cheap Jerseys, but Gaskin said that only students writing exams would be using the facilities, so a section could be designated for the voting process.Gaskin opined that those inconvenienced can have problems with the date, but that is no reason to deny the three-quarter million people who waited for the elections date.He believes that the opposition parties are wasting time asking for a new date. “They would be giving the government an excuse to carry it (date) right down to June, July, August.”“If you get another date; maybe May 18 is something else; somebody will be unhappy with it. You have to run with it; May 11 is the date, you have to work around it, all those who are inconvenienced.”Gaskin added that outside of the “inconveniences,” The Indian Day arrival event is in the first week of May; that is the big mobilsation of the vote; Indian arrival week. And then they have the elections after the mobilsation of the Indian arrival.”He said that citizens could expect the “big, over-the-top celebration, then everybody will be in the mood, PPP mood.”Gaskin envisaged a “big rally for Indian arrival which really is PPP.” He claimed that Indian Arrival is one of the PPP organs. “So they will mobilize and go straight into elections.”Prior to Indian Arrival Day which is May 5,  May 1 is Labour Day which Gaskin claimed will be used to mobilize the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) and National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE).Again, he said,Jerseys NFL Cheap, citizens can expect ‘the works’ as this too will be used as a mobilisation event leading to the polls.Gaskin pointed to another event that he believes will be held on May 10, by another organization closely aligned with the PPP. He said, “They (PPP) work through these agencies. That’s the strategy, that’s how the party works.” “The date was well plotted and it will not change,” he reiterated.Gaskin pointed out however, that political observers should look for the dissolution of Parliament. There is the contention that the President announced a date for elections but made no mention of the date to dissolve Parliament which is a legal requirement.Gaskin noted however that dissolving Parliament is not an issue since the government still has time. Article 61 of the Constitution requires elections within 90 days of the dissolution of parliament. He said that time is still with the PPP since around mid-February would bring them close to the 90 day stipulation.Gaskin opined however, that by February 10, the President will have to dissolve or re-open Parliament since the law stipulates that the House cannot be closed for more than six months; prorogued or not. It will be six months from August 10,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, 2014 to February 10, 2015 since Parliament has been closed.
