Associate Professor of Africana Studies Nigel Westmaas was a guest on Jamaica Radio’s NewsTalk93FM for a discussion of Guyana’s national elections on May 11.
Westmaas addressed the significance of the elections for Guyana’s future and the enormous prospects for political and social change with a multiracial plebiscite. A six political party opposition coalition was expected to win over the incumbent government, thus breaking the ethnic voting deadlock that has lasted for 60 years. The Atlanta based Carter Center observed the Guyana elections.
