So why you didn’t hold Ganger feet to the fire ... you playing you Rass nah . 

Granger is a decent leader ,not like the rabble rouser shooting bullcrap to look impressive.

How is Granger a decent leader when he violated the constitution at least three times in the past 4+ years?

Secondly, prior to Jagdeo becoming President, the constitution did not limit the President to only two terms. Jagdeo as President amended it so that a President can serve for only two terms. Given that Granger violated the constitution at least three times in the past 4+ years, it is reasonable to conclude that had he been President in 2000 rather than Jagdeo that constitution would still be allowing Presidents to serve more than two terms.  There is nothing decent about Granger. He is not even as decent as Jagdeo who NEVER violated the constitution.

Read this 2019/07/2019-CCJ-14-AJ.pdf

Then we can talk ,again on this matter.

I just responded to it. The CCJ bitchslapped the Coalition in that entire ruling.

Read paragraph [ 5 ] and [ 7 ]

There is nothing in article relieving Granger from any responsibility pertaining to the constitutional demands in light of the NCV. Even GECOM was placed on notice about their responsibility pertaining to the demands of the constitution in light of the NCV. But look how the CCJ solidified their ruling in article 6. Nothing of favor for the Coalition my brother.

[5] The judiciary interprets the Constitution. But, as we intimated in our earlier judgment, these particular provisions require no gloss on the part of the Court in order to render them intelligible and workable. Their meaning is clear and it is the responsibility of constitutional actors in Guyana to honour them. Upon the passage of a vote of no confidence, the Article requires the resignation of the Cabinet including the President. The Article goes on to state, among other things, that notwithstanding such resignation, the Government shall remain in office and that an election shall be held “within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine …” The Guyana Elections Commission (“GECOM”) has the responsibility to conduct that election and GECOM too must abide by the provisions of the Constitution.
 
[6] Given the passage of the no confidence motion on 21 December 2018, a general election should have been held in Guyana by 21 March 2019 unless a two thirds majority in the National Assembly had resolved to extend that period. The National Assembly is yet to extend the period. The filing of the court proceedings in January challenging the validity of the no confidence vote effectively placed matters on pause, but this Court rendered its decision on 18 June 2019. There is no appeal from that judgment.
