Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George-Wiltshire on Wednesday afternoon ruled that the ongoing House to House registration exercise is not unlawful or unconstitutional.

In delivering her ruling, the Chief Justice said “House to House is not unconstitutional as a verification exercise in and of itself.”

Additionally, the court found that there is nothing in the Caribbean Court of Justice’s orders of July 12 which says the exercise is unconstitutional.

As it relates to the court ordering elections by September 18, the Chief Justice said it is not for the court to make that determination. She alluded to the CCJ’s orders which also stayed clear of doing same.

“This court cannot order that elections be held by a certain date,” the Chief Justice said as she alluded to the need for the National Assembly to meet and extend the date for elections which she noted should have been extended since March 21 while the December 21 No Confidence motion was being challenged in court.

The challenge to the House-House registration exercise was filed by Chartered Accountant and Attorney-at-law, Christopher Ram; he was represented by former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall and others.

Ram in an application filed on July 22, asked the court to declare that the House to House registration exercise is in violation of the Constitution of Guyana and the spirit of the Consequential orders issued by the CCJ on July 12.

Ram also challenged the registration exercise on the grounds that it is only serving to delay the elections which he wants by September 18.

In the end, blacks will always stand on the side with fellow blacks regardless of how wrong they are. It is coolie crab dog actions that make them desert their fellow coolie mattee and side with blacks who never give a shit for coolies or law and order for that matter. Y’all coolie who helped put the wicked PNC in power happy now?

The process of ongoing registration was established earlier where there was a national registration done and after that time registration was to be made regularly by GECOM. From the current issues, it is clear that GECOM has failed to perform its duties.

Also , GECOM must ALWAYS be prepared for a snap elections; hence it MUST maintain a continuous registration process for such situation(s).

Indeed the court cannot order that elections be held at a certain date as that is established in the constitution.

The specific situation is the holding of elections within three months based on the CCJ decision that the government was defeated by a no-confidence vote in December 2018.

The focused issues now that the CCJ has made the final decision; it is incumbent that elections must be held within three months.

The process the government failed thus far since the CCJ decision is --

1. President and Government MUST resign.

2. President then remains in office to specifically conduct an elections which MUST take place within three months after the date that the CCJ rendered its decision.

Thus far the president has not proceeded with items 1 and 2.

Haul yo ass Kaz, blame that SOB BJ for being an azzhole. I already said, no election until when it is scheduled for, screw the NCV and screw Chandarasclath for pulling an idiotic move, the fool should have spoken out against the govt and walked across the floor if he really cared, but noooo he pulled a sleazy illegal move that did not work.

So yuh rass now render the 2015 elections null and void then? 😀

I am frock in confused with this decision when this same CJ said this on July 24th 2019

But significantly, the Chief Justice emphasised that she understood that the CCJ ruled that the elections must be held by September 18”.
“And she said that very clearly, that that is what the CCJ ruled in accordance with articles 106 (6 and 7)“ 

 

Below is the right of an application as per the National Registration ACT. 

The Applicant’s right to vote will and can be protected if the Respondents were to engage in Continuous Registration as provided for in Section 6 (1) of the National Registration Act Cap. 19:08,” the application advised.

Really??  Is H2H constitutional?

In the end Blackman will always side with Blackman. Only Coolie stupid to cut he mattee throat. Cribby said that Trotman and his segment of the AFC is now with the PNC. Nagamootoo and Ramjattan continue to side with the PNC even though most of their segment has gone back to the PPP. The trouble is that going back to the PPP now is too late. The PNC ain't going anywhere. Not without burning the place down and now Guyana gat even more oil to feed the fiah. Another aspect of Coolie crab dog attitude is that while they had no trouble backing a Christian leader (Jagan & Ramotar), a Hindu leader (Jagdeo). Heck, even a Jewish leader (Janet). Suddenly they can't support the party because the new leader is Muslim (Ali). If Ali is going to be Jagdeo's puppet, so was Ramotar and people had no trouble voting for him. I don't like Ali either. I prefer Nandlall because he is more stately but I can't understand the sudden defection when Jagdeo has been running PPP things since 1999. Those Coolies who handed the PNC the keys to government in 2015 are totally to blame for the wicked behavior of the PNC today.

That ohman overturned a whole election. Yet she hasn't gotten off sheh ass since she tun Chairperson.

Our democracy is alive. The courts have validated.  The Registration process will go ahead and all eligible people will be allowed to vote.  The Coalition is acting responsibly in the interest of all Guyanese. 

The Coalition will be headed by the two distinguished politicians Cde Granger and Cde Nagamootoo. All Guyanese should be proud!
