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.
