KN article:

Jagdeo Third Term… Out of the question-Corbin

A suggestion by the People’s Progressive Party’s member, Reepu Daman Persaud to seek to have the Constitution of Guyana amended to have President Bharrat Jagdeo serve a third term in office has been denounced by both of the main opposition parties.Regarding the votes that would be required from the PNCR to give the move a two-thirds majority at the National Assembly, Leader of the Party says, “Out of the Question.”The constitution was amended in the run up to the 2006 general elections to limit an individual to two terms in Office as President.Kaieteur News was told that the suggestion did garner much support from delegates at the congress during the plenary session, but was not moved as a motion or discussed in any great detail.General Secretary of the PPP, Donald Ramotar noted that the issue of a third term was not a matter of much concern to the party.Ramotar was speaking at a post-congress press briefing yesterday at Freedom House on Robb Street.Regarding the issue of Presidential Candidate for 2011, Ramotar insisted that the topic was not ventilated at the just-concluded congress, noting that there is enough time before the next General Elections.To date at least three Central Committee members have signaled their intentions to contest the presidential slot.The three are Ralph Ramkarran, Moses Nagamootoo and Donald Ramotar.
