-unilateral decision made

October 19,2017

This story is developing and will be updated.

President David Granger is to swear in a Chairman of GECOM tonight, according to an advisory from the Ministry of the Presidency.

A decision was arrived at following a meeting between Granger and Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo today.

James Patterson

It comes after months of deadlock between the two over the choice. Stabroek News has been told that the person chosen is retired Justice James Patterson, 84. His name was not on the three lists submitted by Jagdeo.  Sources say that Jagdeo did not agree with Patterson’s name and it would in effect mean that Granger has made a unilateral decision. Patterson chaired the Commission of Inquiry into last year’s prison fire that killed 17 prisoners.

Today I had a discussion with my cousin and told him Granger have the power not pick the GECOM Chairman from the list Jagdeo submitted,not because the PPP did that,Granger is obliged to do so,he was mad with me,i told him the Constitution of Guyana gives too much power to the President.

I knew all along Granger will use this power and nominate some one of his own choice.The game begins from now to 2020.

Only problem is that this government had promised the Guyanese people that they will be different.

Guyana needs a representative government where all can feel represented.
