first_imgDear Editor,With regard to President David Granger unilaterally selecting Justice (rtd) James Patterson as GECOM Chairman without furnishing reasons for rejecting three lists submitted by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, questions need to be asked as to what criteria President David Granger used in rejecting the three lists.Without furnishing reason/s for rejecting the lists, how is anyone going to be able to know whether the President acted rationally or irrationally?The whole point of the Amendment (Article 161) from what existed before was to prevent the President from unilaterally selecting the GECOM Chairman, which the President has done anyway.What, then, is the point of the Amendment, other than for decorative purposes?Yours faithfullySean Orilast_img
