Two judges of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Wednesday morning raised questions
about whether Guyana’s constitution and election law can be amended by subsidiary legislation.

CCJ President , Justice Adrian Saunders posed the question to Attorney-at-Law John Jeremie
for the respondent Eslyn David.

That question was asked at the juncture when Jeremie was making the point that the Guyana Court of Appeal
was asked for an interpretation of “more votes are cast” as stated in Article 177 (2)(b).

The local appeal court ruled that “more votes are cast” means “more valid votes are cast”.

Justice Saunders also remarked that if the CCJ were to rule that a court can determine the validity of the election

of an official before the official is actually elected,

that would be the first time that the Commonwealth that would happen.

CCJ Judge, Jacob Wit went on to remark that that would have implications for the Representation of the People Act

which speaks about valid votes.

“If you give a different meaning to valid votes, that would not be within the jurisdiction of the Court of Appeal

and will be dangerous to do it this way,”

This scene makes me nervous along with granger’s claim about swearing in this weekend and then this comment by Bess.

“We are trained to support the democratically elected Government of the day based on the Constitution and that we will continue to do,” Brigadier Bess said.
