Attorneys Corbin, Boston say CCJ judgement ‘clear and precise’
Attorneys-at-law Neil Boston and Robert Corbin have endorsed the orders handed down by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Friday as “clear and precise.”
The two Attorneys represented a private citizen Compton Reid who challenged the legitimacy of Government defector, Charrandass Persaud’s vote which he cast on December 21, 2018, against a Government which he was a part of.
Speaking with the media outside of the Guyana Appeal Court on Friday afternoon, Corbin said the CCJ Judges “have made a clear and precise judgement and it’s for the actors –the President and the Leader of the Opposition- who have heard the judgement to act accordingly.”
President of the CCJ, Justice Adrian Saunders explained that the three-month timeline stipulated in the Constitution of Guyana for the holding of an elections after the passage of a No-Confidence Motion commences from June 18 when the court ruled that it was validly passed.
Boston said one expects that the political leaders will move forward with the process now that clarity has been given.
President David Granger and Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo are expected to meet shortly to continue negotiations on a new chair for the Guyana Elections Commission.
Following the appointment of the new Chair, the President said the process will run smooth towards the holding of credible elections.
