Ruling PPP maintains that the four local Gov’t Bills passed are unconstitutional
Newly appointed General secretary of the Ruling PPP has made it clear that the man he took over from as General Secretary, that is President Donald Ramotar, will not be bullied into signing Bills passed by the Parliament and if that is not good enough for the opposition then they can take it to the courts for satisfaction. He said the Government is not playing tit for tat.
Rohee was speaking at a press conference called by the party on Monday to address several issues.
Rohee said the opposition is failing and wants to find distractions but the courts is the best place for them to address the issue of the bills.
The deadline for the President to give his assent to the Bills recently passed by the National Assembly expired last Thursday and it is now up to the President to write to the speaker of the National assembly to give his reasons for so acting.
The four Bills were expected to pave the way for Local Government elections and was hailed by the opposition, the diplomatic community and civil society organizations.
