Guyana: Jagdeo says gov’t illegal since March 21st -calls CGX agreement, natural resources fund law invalid

Now holding that government became illegal due to the failure to hold elections by March 21st, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday said the PPP/C would not recognise key actions taken after the passage of the no-confidence motion, including approval for a deal made by oil explorer CGX and the legal architecture for the oil revenues fund.

“Since March 21st, the government has been practising unconstitutional rule. It is a usurper… it is acting outside the provision. We were prepared to have this until September 18th. If they think this [litigation] really helped them, well they should think again. Any act committed after that period would be null and void,” Jagdeo told a press conference, while announcing that his party does not recognise the validity of the agreement made with CGX or the enactment of the critical Natural Resources Fund (NRF) law.
