Dear Editor,

The run-up to the likely election in August of a new Leader for the PNC/R has began to generate some strange ideas among some people geared to confuse members of the PNC/R who are wanting in their ability to genuinely analyse a situation.

Propagandists have it that the PNC/R should do like the PPP/C in having a young and energetic person at the helm after Mr Hoyte would have stepped down.

It is further suggested that the person elected must be prepared to suffer in silence as the current head of state is doing, as it appears that he is allowing himself to be manipulated by the political machinery that has spawned him.

Historically, East Indians are known to suffer in silence however, the same cannot be said for Africans, hence, those who are advocating that a "puppet" be made leader of the PNC/R are in fact engaging in political adventurism. It is the very adventurism which has turned the PPP/C government into the joke it is. Where the possible ends, adventurism begins.

Yours faithfully,

Steve Zulkikar
