Our Constitution and other laws require the appointments of several Constitutional Commissions and various statutory bodies. The nation expects that the responsible authorities and agencies would act promptly in the appointment of suitably qualified persons without racial, political, or any other discrimination in our plural society of multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural composition.
The gross negligence of timely actions by the responsible Governing Authorities is unacceptable and must be corrected by the authorities to gain lost trust and respect from large sections of the population. A few examples of non-appointment of constitutional and statutory bodies include: the Ethnic Relations Commission, the Integrity Commission, the Public Service Commission, the University of Guyana Council, and the Trade Union Recognition and Certification Board, among others.
Would the Governing Authorities of the National Assembly and the Executive correct the disrespect of the Constitution and other laws of our land, and obey these Laws? The people of Guyana elected the representatives of the political parties and the Executive Government to always act promptly in keeping with requirements of the Constitution and other Laws of Guyana in the national interest, and not on partisan and narrow political self-interest. These authorities – members of the National Assembly, Ministers, and the Executive Government, and Public Servants must act promptly in a transparent, inclusive manner, and must be held accountable to the public for inordinate and unreasonable delays in discharging their public duties.
The public calls on His Excellency, the President of all of Guyana to discipline and sanction all public officials for misconduct and gross negligence in the discharge of their public duties. Ministerial heads and Public Servants heads must roll as appropriate. As a minimum, the worn out, mediocre, and third-rate pack of political cards, must be reshuffled for the national good.
