RESIDENTS of Lethem, Region Nine, are in high spirits and have heaped praise on the government for newly-paved roads in the hinterland community.

On Monday, pictures of a paved main road in Lethem were circulated on social media network – Facebook, with many of its users welcoming the long-awaited change from the usual red loom, dry and dusty atmosphere in Lethem.

The comments were many; one person commented “way to go”, thanking everyone including past and present mayors of Region Nine and the Ministry of Public Infrastructure for making it all possible.

Another person heralded the new development as history made in Lethem, while yet another described it as “great progress”.

However, while the pictures told no lie, the exercise was, in fact, the testing of the 100 metres of road selected as a sample for application of asphalt. Based on the result, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure would refine the asphalt and officially begin paving on Monday, May 27, 2019.

The contract for paving of the Lethem road was awarded to contractor JR Ranch Incorporated.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Department of Public Information (DPI) spoke with Christopher Chung and Rickey Lalldeo, two bus drivers who frequent the Lethem/Georgetown route, about the already-paved 100 metres of road.

Chung said: “It’s very dusty here in Lethem, we have waited a long time for this”. Meanwhile, fellow driver, Lalldeo stated “the dust killing you… it is much better now than it was before”.

Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson, has reiterated, through a statement from his ministry, that he was pleased to continuously construct and rehabilitate the road networks within the hinterland, “to provide faster and smoother linkage to the coastal regions”. (DPI)

Was it really a good move for the law to have been changed to make coalitions legal only before an election? Post elections coalition allows smaller parties to hold the feet of the larger ones to the fire and enable them to influence policies and programs since they can actually point to electoral support they bring to the coalition via actual parliamentary seats. It also ensures that fringe parties with not enough electoral support for a single seat to not make grandiose claims about their influence

THE Management of the Guyana/Suriname Ferry Service has advised that operations have been suspended from Monday until further notice.

According to a Department of Public Information (DPI) release, Terminal Manager Gale Culley-Greene explained that the M.V. Canawaima has been experiencing mechanical difficulties for some time, and a decision was taken to have the vessel assessed and repaired. The Terminal Manager further disclosed that if the ferry is docked, a replacement vessel would be sourced. The matter is engaging the attention of both Guyanese and Surinamese authorities, the DPI release concluded.

It is not the first time the ferry service has been suspended due to mechanical problems with the vessel. Back in January 2018, the ferry service was down from January 6-14, 2018, since at the time, the M.V Canawaima was scheduled for an emergency docking in order to restore both engines.

“The M.V. Canawaima continues to experience extensive mechanical challenges that prompted the hire of a tug to assist in the propulsion of the vessel,” then Terminal Manager Deyne Harry had told a news conference at the Ministry of Public Infrastructure. The ferry vessel, which travels from Moleson Creek on the Guyana side of the border with Suriname to South Drain on the other side, has been reportedly delayed on several occasions due to mechanical problems.

Both the Governments of Guyana and Suriname are usually responsible for the rehabilitation of the vessel.

Guyana constitution is so complex it's taking the CCJ judges quite some time to hand
down a verdict on the NCM, the NCV, and the dual citizenship sitting and voting in
Parliament, none of these laws in the constitution has been challenged before, only
the Third term running for the presidency, now the world and Guyanese are witnessing
our constitution, what will the Govt do about rewriting a brand new constitution, what will
Govt do about Gecom, should Gecom be provided with funds from the UN so they could
be ready at all times and not have to wait on monies from Govt., should Gecom staff
consist of UN representatives, there are lots of questions to be asked, also will it take
just 33 votes to bring down a Govt in the future, we need answers.

Attorney-at-Law Sanjeev Datadin has accused the APNU+AFC Coalition of misleading the public with the recent application it made to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) regarding the pending appeals on the no-confidence motion.

In an apparent move to further delay the court’s rulings on the appeals, the Government is now seeking to have introduced new evidence relating to former AFC Member of Parliament Charrandas Persaud, he said.

However, in a statement late Friday night, Persaud’s attorney in the proceedings, Datadin, sought to clear the air on the application being sought by the Government.

“The application filed by the Attorney General is desperate. It is another ‘red herring’ designed to mislead the nation. The AG has deliberately and mischievously not disclosed the whole truth of the statement made by our client, Charrandas Persaud. The statement is sadly taken wholly out of context,” the attorney said in the statement.

According to Datadin, he would be filing a response with the CCJ immediately.

In an application filed by Senior Counsel Eamon Courtenay on behalf of Attorney General Basil Williams on Friday, the Trinidad-based regional court is being asked to, among other things, grant permission for the submission of new evidence that has recently become available to the AG.

According to the court application, the evidence “will probably have an important influence on the outcome of this appeal, and… is credible,” and as such, Government is seeking permission to make submissions on whether the new evidence should be admitted; and if admitted, the relevance of the new evidence to the outcome of the appeal.

The “new evidence” has to do with comments made by the former AFC MP Charrandas Persaud, who crossed over to vote in favour of the Opposition’s no confidence motion against the Coalition Government.

The application was filed on the grounds that, among other things, there was no direct evidence of whether Persaud knew that he was unqualified to be candidate and disqualified from sitting in the National Assembly.

Having heard oral submissions from the various parties in the consolidated appeals in two marathon sessions on May 9 and 10, the CCJ panel of judges is expected to deliver their ruling within the coming days. However, with this move by the Government, this process can further be delayed.
