Govt refuses to accept CJ’s decision in no-confidence cases

first_img…moves to Court of AppealBy Jarryl BryanThe Government has appealed the no-confidence related cases it lost on January 31, asking the Court of Appeal to set aside some of the judgements made by acting Chief Justice Roxane George.The first case Attorney General (AG) Basil Williams is appealing is the case of AG v Speaker of the National Assembly and Opposition Leader. The second is AG v Christopher Ram.The initial case directly pertains to the passage of the no-confidence vote in the National Assembly by a majority of 33 to 32 on December 21, 2018. In the case of AG v Speaker of the National Assembly and Opposition Leader, Williams’s submission argues that “there was a miscalculation of the majority of all elected members as required under Article 106 (6) of the Constitution for the Government to be defeated on a vote of no confidence”.The Government’s submission had claimed that acquiring 33 instead of 34 or more votes breached Article 106 (6) of the Constitution and was unlawful. It had also claimed that the Speaker’s certification of the vote by issuing Resolution 101 was not conclusive.In the second case, Ram had argued that Cabinet should have resigned as per the Constitution. Ram had successfully sought to have the High Court validate the no-confidence resolution and have Government comply with constitutional provisions to demit office and call elections no later than March of this year.Ram has also argued that Cabinet’s failure to resign with all convenient speed and to fix an election date could lead to uncertainty and a constitutional crisis if neither occurs in keeping with the Constitution.The Chief Justice had upheld both cases, ruling that the no-confidence vote was validly passed, and that Cabinet should have resigned. However, Williams in his appeal is claiming that the Chief Justice made an error in both of these rulings.AppealParticularly, the AG expressed that the Chief Justice’s decision was “unreasonable and cannot be supported having regard to the evidence”. He is seeking an order setting aside both rulings and all consequential orders, adding that more submissions will be made upon receipt of the CJ’s written ruling.The appeal comes at a time when local and international organisations have been calling for a speedy resolution to these legal matters.President David Granger and the Government as a whole have said they will not resign while these legal cases are pending. On Monday, the European Union called for the appeals to be expedited in much the same way as the Chief Justice expedited the initial case.The EU’s local mission revealed that it was keeping an eye on developments following the vote. The EU urged that democratic procedures and the rule of law be respected and upheld.The EU also called for free and fair elections to be held and for the Guyana Government to follow all requirements outlined in the Constitution of Guyana following the December 21, 2018 no-confidence vote.Government has always said it would appeal the rulings if not favourable. According to the EU, it is best if these appeals are expedited, hinting that foreign investments into Guyana are being held up by the political uncertainty.The EU’s urging came shortly after United Nations Resident Coordinator Mikiko Tanaka urged the Government to demonstrate its integrity and respect Guyana’s Constitution.According to Tanaka, building a peaceful and just society requires respect for the rule of law and confidence in national institutions. “It is hoped that the third arm of the State, the Executive, will demonstrate its integrity and respect for Guyana’s Constitution and the Judiciary that constitute the foundation for the rule of law,” Tanaka added.She also noted that upcoming General and Regional Elections would be a big test for Guyana, considering the atmosphere of mistrust that permeated previous elections. She noted that the need for political parties to be responsible was absolutely critical for bringing an end to racial inequality.last_img read more

June bond deadline looms

first_img Republicans are also looking to bolster use of “pay as you go,” carving out a greater percentage of each year’s budget for infrastructure spending, rather than relying almost exclusively on borrowing. Some lawmakers speculated that the deadline could be pushed back a few days. But Secretary of State Bruce McPherson publicly stuck to the Friday cutoff for the summer ballot. “Any legislation passed after March 10 would be placed on the Nov. 7 general election ballot,” he said in a letter to the Legislature. Perata indicated that breaking the deadline could mean the first piece of Schwarzenegger’s proposal won’t reach voters at all this year. Perata warned that “if this goes too long, it’s going to get caught up in the budget (talks) and the partisan election.” Beth Miller Malek, executive director of the California Infrastructure Coalition, which includes construction firms and local governments, said her group shares the concern that if a bond isn’t placed on the June ballot, “it will not happen this year.” Schwarzenegger said he still hopes to get the first package of bonds on the ballot in June because he agrees that afterward officials are going to have to focus on the state budget. He added that he would rather have the bonds done right and wait until November then have a flawed package sent earlier to voters. “I am willing to work all night,” Schwarzenegger told reporters at the Arnold Classic fitness expo in Ohio. “I like ideas like let’s stay in the Capitol, just stay there until the deal is done and not come out, let’s not go to sleep, let’s not leave the building. “If it really means that much to us, let us make a commitment that we would not go out of the building until the deal is done, until the white smoke comes out.” Steve Geissinger, (916) 447-9302 sgeissinger@angnewspapers.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s plan for an infrastructure bond remains tied up in political debate and is in increasing danger of missing the June ballot. Schwarzenegger was scheduled to meet Monday night with Democratic leaders even as a legislative committee discussed the housing and education elements of the bond package to try to meet Friday’s deadline for June. Schwarzenegger accused Democrats of giving in to pressure from unions, worried that a large amount of bond debt would eat into annual revenues used to pay state workers. But the governor also remained optimistic. “We can make it happen, and we can make it happen this week,” Schwarzenegger said Sunday during an appearance in Ohio. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuez, D-Los Angeles, said Democrats are close to agreeing on a bond for June, and he challenged the Republican governor to muster backing within the GOP to meet the two-thirds margin needed to put the measure before voters. Schwarzenegger has proposed a $222 billion infrastructure plan, which requires a series of voter-approved bonds totaling $68 billion. Nuez and Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, want smaller bonds, while Republicans are divided over how heavily to lean on borrowing as a funding tool. Assemblyman Rick Keene, R-Chico, one of the lead Republican negotiators, said there is still a chance to meet the deadline for the first piece of the bond funding. “Whether it makes it depends on how rigid people are,” Keene said. He said there is a greater likelihood of agreement on transportation issues since negotiators have spent more time on those matters than on elements affecting education and other sectors. last_img read more

SA to host Africa arbitration court

first_img19 April 2007South Africa is to set up and host the Permanent Court of Arbitration for Africa, a branch of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, Netherlands, to help resolve inter-state and non-state disputes on the continent.This follows an agreement signed on Tuesday between Foreign Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Tjaco van den Hout, secretary-general of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA).The African PCA’s mandate will mirror that of the international PCA, which was established in 1899 as the first global institution to promote the peaceful settlement of disputes between countries.South Africa became a member of the PCA when it signed the Convention for the Pacific Settlement of International Disputes in 1997.Van den Hout said having the facility in South Africa was a reflection of the country’s support for the PCA. “I hope that we will be working together to settle disputes between states,” he said.The establishment of a regional facility for Africa will offer an alternative means of settling disputes from those offered by bodies such as the African Court of Justice and the International Court of Justice.The African PCA will also be more flexible and offer a greater degree of autonomy to the parties in dispute, as they will have the freedom to choose the arbitrators, rules and procedures to be applied in each case.Van den Hout said the facility would help countries with fact-finding missions, conciliation and arbitration through professional administration and expert guidance.After an initial focus only on inter-state disputes, the International PCA now also assists in disputes between countries and foreign investors. Van den Hout said it was now common to see private companies in dispute with countries for scarce resources such as oil.The PCA has, over the last decade, experienced a considerable increase in its caseload, which now includes disputes over investments and contracts, maritime delimitation, international boundaries, banking and finance, international humanitarian law and environmental law.The PCA has also opened a regional facility in Costa Rica to service the Latin American region.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
