Letters to the Editor

Chinese govt governs Hong Kong in accordance with China’s Constitution and the Basic Law, not the Joint Declaration

Dear Editor, On June 30, the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) was passed by China’s top legislature, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), added to the list of national laws in Annex III to the Basic Law of the HKSAR, and applied locally by the Chief Executive of the HKSAR.

GECOM Chair should not tolerate any further delays

Dear Editor, Following the welcomed Caribbean Court of Justice’s decision on the 8th of July, 2020, it is now for Gecom and essentially its Chairwoman to act swiftly in concluding the exhaustingly lengthy Elections which has been prolonged for in excess of four months causing grave distress to our nation, in accordance with the recount results.

NICIL’s attitude to sugar industry very worrying

Dear Editor, As I with great anxiety awaited certainly what would be a monumental ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), I began to reflect on the shame the Coalition had brought us and the ignoble legacy that it has bequeathed to all Guyanese.

ERC working to de-escalate tensions

Dear Editor, The Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC), once again, wishes to lend its voice to the call for peace and responsible behaviour by all as the nation awaits the final declaration of the March 02, 2020, General and Regional Elections.  There is no doubt that the historically long period it has taken for the declaration to be made has exacerbated tensions and discontent while unfortunately fostering ethnic strife, especially on social media platforms.

How about valid and invalid runs?

Dear Editor, If more votes do not mean more valid votes, then in a cricket match a victory by say 60 runs more should be questioned on the ground that 60 runs are not 60 valid runs.

A scurrilous attack aimed at undermining Board of Trustees of CCJ Trust Fund

Dear Editor, An erroneous piece of ‘news’ was circulated on various social media platforms recently accusing me of seeking to exert influence over the CCJ ruling by virtue of being a member on the Board of Trustees of the Caribbean Court of Justice’s Trust Fund.  As I usually do as the Private Sector liaison on COVID-19 I contacted Larry London, Egbert Field and a few others regarding a Roraima Airways flight to facilitate the return to Trinidad of two Trinidadian Nationals.

Waiting for a solution beyond the CCJ

Dear Editor, Expectations are high and low, depending on one’s perspective, of the ruling by the Caribbean Court of Justice today in the matter of its jurisdiction, in the Eslyn David V Chief Election Officer et al case.

This appeal will be a test for the CCJ

Dear Editor, I am certain that thousands of persons from Guyana, the Caribbean and the wider world are anxiously awaiting the decision tomorrow of the Caribbean Court of Justice  (CCJ) in Guyana’s elections saga.
