– consultation must be reviewedFormer Speaker of the House, Ralph Ramkarran,Cheap NFL Jerseys, has called for a review of the method of Presidential consultation employed in Guyana,Bobby Doerr Jersey, stating that recent events had raised questions about its effectiveness.His comments came in light of the appointment of the (ag) Chief Justice, Yonette Cummings-Edwards. During the consultation, concerns had been raised about a request from Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo for information on the nominee.“It is not known if any past President received or sought professional advice on consultation,” Ramkarran said. “If not, now is the time to do so and to bring the fifty year old, unconstitutional, method of presidential consultation, hitherto practiced by both parties,Authentic Carolina Panthers Jersey, to an end.”He stated that during the consultation between President David Granger and Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo on the appointment of an acting Chief Justice, it had been reported that Jagdeo had asked for an assessment from the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).The assessment, it is understood,NFL Jerseys Supply, had been of the performance of the President’s nominee based on some specific criteria. It was reported that the information was not provided. Afterwards, Jagdeo had stated that an objective report should have been solicited from the JSC.Former Speaker of the House, Ralph RamkarranChief Justice (ag), Yonette Cummings-EdwardsThe criteria, he had said, should have been about the performance of that person in office, the number of cases, how many decisions were written, outstanding works issued and disciplinary issues.He also noted that he is not sure if Government took these factors into consideration when they nominated Justice Cummings-Edwards.“The appointment, even though an acting one, required meaningful consultation,NFL Jerseys Clearance,” Ramkarran said. “The nature and quality of the consultation between President Granger and Jagdeo, which were suggested by press reports, is a far cry from what it ought to have been on the basis of established legal authority.”According to Ramkarran, case law in England (a model used locally or regionally in certain instances) overwhelmingly establishes that consultation must be fair.“The elements of fairness in consultation were advanced by the then Stephen Sedley Q.C. (later Lord Justice of Appeal Sir Stephen Sedley Q.C. ret.),NFL Jerseys Supply, in a case in which he appeared as counsel in 1985 (R v Brent LBC ex p. Gunning 1985 84 LGR 168).”“These later became known as the Sedley principles on consultation and were upheld in several later cases in the UK Court of Appeal. The principles are the consultation must be at a time when proposals are still at a formative stage (and) the proposer must give sufficient reasons for any proposal to permit of intelligent consideration and response.”The third principle, he noted was that adequate time must be given for consideration and response. Ramkarran stated that the fourth principle should be for the product of consultation to be taken into account when finalizing the decision.“It must go without saying that to achieve consultation, sufficient information must be supplied by the consulting party to the consulted party to enable it to tender helpful advice,” Ramkarran expounded. “Sufficient time must be given by the consulting to the consulted party to enable it to do that, and sufficient time must be available for such advice to be considered by the consulting party.”“At minimum, under the Reg. v Social Service Secretary case, Jagdeo was entitled to the information he sought and time to consider it,” he stated. “By virtue of the Moseley case, he was entitled to be told if the President considered any other qualified nominee, and if not, why not, and if he did, why did he reject him or her. In so far as these did not occur, the constitution was violated.”On December 9, President Granger had met with the Leader of the Opposition at the Ministry of the Presidency to consult and determine the Judge who would be appointed to perform the functions of the Office of the Chief Justice, when Justice Ian Chang proceeded on leave.At the meeting, the President had nominated Cummings, a Justice of Appeal, primarily on the considerations that she is a woman with years of experience as a Puisne Judge of the High Court of the Supreme Court of Judicature, a Justice of Appeal of the Court of Appeal, her competency and professionalism.
