A Date to Remember: 11/16/17

Opposition Member of Parliament (MP) Anil Nandlall told this publication that the matter will be heard before acting Chief Justice Roxane George-Wiltshire on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 13:15h.

As much as I expected a busy weekend on GNI, I am more concern on how the court will rule on the constitutional interpretation of Granger's unilaterall appointment of justice James Patterson. I have said it before and I am saying it again that this case may rule in Granger's favor based on "Constitutional Misinterpretion Grounds" that may tip the balance on what is acceptable vs what' is not acceptble by the President.

I hope I am wrong for everyone's sake. Toes and fingers crossed.

Constitution needs to change

Let's leave the constitution unchanged for now and focus on the interpretation on current laws of the land. The supreme court of Guyana is the last place the nation has on its side for justice. Though, we don't have constitutional scholars, the supreme court is the guardian of the constitution. I still can't believe that everyone has his or her own interpretation from one or two articles of the constitution that this matter has to be taken to court to render a solution. I hope the judge understands the constitution the way it was meant to be interpreted.
