Abstract

General elections in British Guiana on August 21 resulted in a solid victory for the Peoples Progressive Party under the leadership of Dr. Cheddi Jagan. The principle of complete independence has already been conceded by London, and Dr. Jagan, as the country's new Premier, is pressing for its immediate realization. We publish below an excerpt from Dr. Jagan's last campaign broadcast, made on August 17th. Cheddi Jagan is a long-time subscriber to MR and a good friend. We know that he means exactly what he says, and we believe that under his leadership British Guiana will become an example and inspiration to underprivileged countries throughout the world. We congratulate Dr. Jagan, the Peoples Progressive Party, and the people of British Guiana, and wish them all success in the new period of struggle and achievement which is opening up before them. —The Editors
