  1. Comrade Pierre, our beloved SLP adminisration must not betray our alliance with our Venezuelan comrades. Do not give legitimacy to the Guyanese/ British occupation of Venezuelan territory. We must seek the expulsion of Guyana from CARICOM if they fo not hand back territory to Venezuela and Suriname.

  2. In his words” I won’t be a traveling prime minister” so what changed. Politicians need to be careful what they say before they get in power and soon after winning. It may soon bite you in the butt.

  3. Pierre has proven himself to be a weak leader, where is the minimum wage that he promise to enact on independence day . I call on all private sector workers to vote him out in the upcoming elections
