121 Days after March 2 ,2020 Elections ,the people of Guyana will know which Political Party(s) will be the next Government.

Not really. Even if the CCJ rules in the PPP/C's favor that Sanctimonious Gangster Granger and his Harmonite strongmen will not step down. Some observers believe the Harmonites will provoke a crisis and Granger will declare a State of Emergency. But I do hope that better sense prevails and that Granger accepts peacefully a pro-PPP/C ruling by the CCJ.

Are you saying that the PNC will use better judgement?

Who knows? The world is warning them. They must realize they can't withstand political isolation and economic sanctions for long.

Today July 1st Ralph Gonsalves takes over as CARICOM Chairman. He will start the ball rolling. Gonsalves' position against Granger's position is well known. Gonsalves commands more respect within the Caribbean than Granger.

Yes! indeed! The whole of Guyana will suffer greatly if the PNC is allowed to get away with cheating as they did between 1968 and 1985, 2015 and now 2020.

It is interesting to listen to the proceeding, The PNC lawyer has difficulty pronouncing words and several time had to be reminded of the subject being addressed.

 I can see the judges being disgusted by the poor presentation by the PNC clowns.

PNC lawyer not answering the judges questions just keep quoting cases, one judge even said you have quoted that case before. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

I'm amused by how people evaluate the lawyers.  I have been around countless lawyers and have listened to numerous presentations in different legal proceedings.  First thing to bear in mind is that most of a lawyer's case is in the written materials submitted .  Second, the oral presentations are by design and necessity slow paced because a number of people have to follow what is being said and the constant references to cases is because that is the the essence of the common law.  

CCJ judges raise key questions at Jagdeo-Ally β€œvalid votes” appeal

 

President of the Caribbean Court of Justice, Adrian Saunders telling Attorney General Basil Williams (backing camera) β€œwe need to make this thing work”

Two judges of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Wednesday morning raised questions about whether Guyana’s constitution and election law can be amended by subsidiary legislation.

CCJ President , Justice Adrian Saunders posed the question to Attorney-at-Law John Jeremie, for the respondent Eslyn David. β€œDoes that sound right to you?,” Saunders said.

That question was asked at the juncture when Jeremie was making the point that the Guyana Court of Appeal was asked for an interpretation of β€œmore votes are cast” as stated in Article 177 (2)(b). The local appeal court ruled that β€œmore votes are cast” means β€œmore valid votes are cast”.  The lawyer noted that the applicant that Article be read in accordance with the gazetted recount order number 60.

Justice Jacob Wit

Justice Saunders also remarked that if the CCJ were to rule that a court can determine the validity of the election of an official before the official is actually elected, that would be the first time that the Commonwealth that would happen.

CCJ Judge, Jacob Wit queried what was meant by valid votes, and he went on to remark that that would have implications for the Representation of the People Act which speaks about valid votes. β€œIf you give a different meaning to valid votes, that would not be within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal and will be dangerous to do it this way,” the judge said.

The recount Order 60 provided for the reconciliation of votes cast in the March 2, 2020 general and regional elections with voters’ lists, counterfoils and stubs.

Attorney-at-Law , Douglas Mendes, for appellants Bharrat Jagdeo and Irfaan Ali remarked that β€œit will amend the constitution.”
