By Vladimir Elie

Another year falls into darkness and the sun of a new year is rising, filling our hearts with hope and anticipation—and perhaps, for some, apprehension.

I enjoy this time of the year, not only because of the celebrations and the quality time I share with friends and family, but also because it offers me an ideal opportunity to reflect on the past year and prepare for the upcoming one.

Truth be told, this form of stereotyping has fostered non functional cooperation and an endemic bout of incompetence that the PPP will never recover from. And now that the PPP has taken the brash and brazen step to suspend parliament, regret is not a prescription for redemption. Continue reading
