Civil Society Group Article 13, has once again expressed its disappointment over what it sees as the continuous constitutional violations by the PPP government.
In a statement, the group accused the Government of chalking up a formidable list of “constitutional violations”.
“What makes those violations worse is the Administration’s cavalier disregard of legitimate calls for it to avoid such conduct. We remind the President that his Party did not take an Oath to uphold the Constitution – he did. The violations then are his, not his Party’s,” the group said in its statement.
Further, the group pointed out that it is disappointed at the undue haste with which the Government rushed through the Natural Resource Fund legislation through the National Assembly.
“Guyana’s sovereignty belongs to the people, not to any political party. Guyana’s wealth too, belongs to the people, not to any political party. We elect governments to manage the country’s resources in the interest of both current and succeeding generations. When the Government fails to act in accordance with that mandate, the fundamental trust and confidence that hold our society together are at best strained, and at worst, rendered asunder,” the group said in a statement.
The Opposition APNU+AFC protests during the debate on the NRF legislation was also denounced by the group.
