The Attorney General’s request for the Court of Appeal to grant a stay in the High Court’s ruling in the no confidence matter and grant an order to preserve the President and cabinet beyond 90 days after the passage of the no-confidence motion, has been delayed as the Appeal Justice Rishi Persaud, pointed to several mistakes that were made in the applications submitted to the Court.
In one of the Applications, the name of the Leader of the Opposition was left off as a party to the matter, while another application omitted the name of the Speaker of the National Assembly as a party to the matter.
The presiding Judge said the applicationS cannot go forward with the omissions and he urged that the applications be redone before the Court moves ahead to consider them.
The Attorney General attempted to convince the Court to still move ahead with the matter, but after the Judge refused, he said he would have the corrections made to the applications and have new filings as early as tomorrow.
The Appeal Court is being asked to consider and throw out a number of the rulings made by the Chief Justice in relation to the no confidence case.
The Attorney General’s case was the first one filed. Another case filed by Senior Counsel Rex McKay on behalf of Berbice resident, Compton Reid is slated to come up soon in the Court.
