I see a lot of road work in South Florida where there is really no one working. We always tend to get upset that the people doing these road work is doing nothing for the money they are getting. But there is another side to the story. Maybe they only work after they receive payments for the planned work and since the government doesn't necessarily have an endless pit of money, they pay in piecemeal and so work is also done piecemeal. Those entities who recently signed agreements with the caretaker PNC government should hold off doing any work because there is a good chance they will not be paid as those contracts are not binding.

Are we still going to argue about whether the government is a caretaker one or are we going to finally insist that the PNC stop behaving lawlessly?

How about the bills they passed and contracts they signed since the NCV?

I don't thing those are binding either. Saunders pretty much emphasized that when he stressed the meaning of a caretaker government. BUt don't put it past the wicked PNC to ask for further clarity.

Perhaps they may or may not be valid.

However, as of this decision today, it is clear that ....

1. PNCR/AFC/APNU government MUST resign.

2. President remains with a caretaker government ONLY to effect the elections within three months -- i.e., by October, 2019.

3. The new government; after the elections; can contemplate on those immediate past issues which may be considered as non-effective.

Caribbean Court says Granger’s govt in “caretaker” mode, elections must be determined locally

The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Friday ruled that it is for Guyana’s President, Opposition Leader, Parliament and the Guyana Elections Commission to determine when General elections should be held.

CCJ President, Justice Adrian Saunders said the constiution provides for those actors to determine the way forward.

He highlighted that while that process is underway,  President David Granger and his Cabinet has to resign, but the President and government would remain in office until general elections are held.

Justice Saunders said in the interim the Granger-led government is a “caretaker”.

Justice Saunders said the Constiution prohibits the Court from intervening on those political aspects.

He noted that the constitution provides for Parliament to extend the deadline by which General elections should be held beyond the three-month time frame.

President Granger and Opposition Leader have begun talks on the appointment of a Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission.

President Granger has said he wants a GECOM Chairman appointed soonest to advise him on when General elections are possible.
