The CCJ only suggested that the two sides get together and discuss the candidate because they noted that in 2017, Granger never detailed why he objected to each of the 18 candidates nominated by the Opposition Leader. It was not a directive by the CCJ as was the directive that elections has to be held within 90 days from June 18, 2019 and should have really been held no later than March 22, 2019 had there not been a pause due to ongoing court proceedings.

Jagdeo did not ask Granger to provide any names. Harmon said that Granger wants to provide names from which he can pick from. From the beginning, the opposition insisted that the 6 names that eventually reaches Granger's desk will be the sole responsibility and right of the Opposition Leader. Looks like that 10 days or so long intense indoctrination at Congress Place has really fortified you to spread their propaganda. Unfortunately, because the PNC is grossly incompetent, so are your arguments.

"Although maintaining that the submission of the nominees for the chairmanship of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) remains solely his remit, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday signalled that he was open to President David Granger “suggesting” names for his consideration during their impending talks on the subject.

Jagdeo’s position, described as a measure intended “to find consensus,” was communicated in a response by People’s Progressive Party member Gail Teixeira to a letter from Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency Joseph Harmon, who sought to determine whether it was agreed that both parties would be identifying nominees."
