It’s not of my personality to publicly engage anyone, regardless of their injudiciousness. But it’s time that someone tells Bharrat Jagdeo to take several seats.
I’m following every move leading up to this stage following that daunting No confidence motion was proposed and passed in the National Assembly. While it was a show of real calibre and well thought-out political manoeuvre of your part Mr. Jagdeo, just like the present Government was surprised that it won the last Regional and General Elections, this Government and you were surprised of the No confidence motion success. Although many feel that it was some secret cohesion on the part of one Member of Parliament and your Political Party, I’m otherwise convinced. It’s my opinion that both you and the Government were shocked by the result of what I call a pure, political poker bluff that you played.
Although I respect the outcome, I believe that it was your expectation that there would be snap elections. Although enshrined in the Constitution, neither you nor your advisors were aware that there were many conduits that the events following could be influenced by. The moves that followed judicially were unpredictable and nerve-racking.
What appalls me more so is your eloquence at this time of being the greatest custodian of the Constitution of Guyana, when you openly ignored and/or violated it for your period of Presidency with the absence of bodies that were enshrined in the very Constitution of Guyana, including ignoring the importance of Local Government Elections.
At this stage you have again shown open disregard of the independence of the Constitutional Body, Gecom, to conduct a free and Fair election without the input or influence of yourself or the President or anyone whatsoever.
May I submit to you that I thoroughly respect this Gecom Chairwoman as the fittest person for the position, being that she fits all the necessary criteria and had the decency to turn down your offer for the post the first time you presented it to her. And on your second approach she accepted the position and her selection was assented to by the President.
Now you choose to label Gecom a runaway horse when it is guided by your selection as Chairperson. I find your behaviour appalling and akin to a spoilt child. Please Mr. Jagdeo, take several seats and let the Honourable Chairperson Retired Justice Claudette Singh do her job. Mind you, if President Granger tries to intervene I would tell him the same thing.
