PSC urges all to abide by CCJ ruling
The Private Sector Commission (PSC) says it is “heartened” by the recommendation of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) that all parties involved in the No Confidence case meet and agree on a course of action in the best interest of the nation.
A statement from the PSC Tuesday following the rulings by the CCJ urged that “all Guyanese to respect the ruling and the statement by His Excellency President David Granger that his government will abide by the ruling of the Court.”
The PSC said it looks forward to an early consensual agreement between the President and the Leader of the Opposition on a new GECOM Chairman.
The CCJ ruled that the December 21 No Confidence motion was properly passed with 33 votes in the 65-seat National Assembly. It also ruled that the appointment of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission breached the Constitution.
President of the Court, Justice Adrian Saunders, urged the parties to engage with each other. It is hoped that they can come up with a consensus that the Court can then use to make its consequential orders.
