Government and opposition lawyers yesterday argued in court about the constitutionality of the Parliamentary Committee of Selection. The opposition parties which hold a majority have voted for the committee to be made up of nine members, but the government wants it to remain a 10-member committee.Attorney General Anil Nandlall, is arguing that what is being sought by the opposition in parliament with the committees is being done against the parliamentary norms, conventions and the constitution. The AG is seeking the court’s intervention to stop this.However, lawyers for the opposition are contending that Parliament and the Courts of Guyana are two separate pillars and therefore one cannot intrude in the working of the other.The AG moved to the court earlier this month to challenge the new arrangement for the Parliamentary Committee of Selection on which it was relegated to minority membership following the November 28 polls.The government’s chief spokesman, NFL Jerseys Sale, Dr Roger Luncheon, had stated that the government is seeking to achieve the same objective by way of a motion in the National Assembly, but that is not likely to find favour, since the opposition controls Parliament and have argued that there is nothing unconstitutional about the setting up of the committee.The government is looking to fight the battle wherever it can in its attempts to quash the formation of the committee which gives the governing party – the PPP – and the opposition coalition -APNU – four members each.The other opposition party, the AFC holds a crucial one seat on the committee.In court documents, Attorney General Nandlall, stated that the government is seeking a declaration that the composition of the Committee of Selection “is in violation of the principle of proportionality as contemplated by Articles 60 and 160, of the Constitution and the provisions of the Elections Laws (Amendment) Act No.15 of 2000 and accordingly, unconstitutional, unlawful, null, void and of no effect.”Further, the government wants the court to issue an order setting aside, revoking, cancelling or annulling the composition of the said Committee of Selection on the ground that it violates Articles 60 and 160 of the Constitution of Guyana and is in breach of the provisions of the Election Laws (Amendment) Act No. 15 of 2000.Opposition Leader David Granger and Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman, are named as respondents in the case.Nandlall argued that the composition of the Committee of Selection is violative of the principle of proportionality as contemplated by the Constitution since in this configuration; the PPP/C with 32 seats has the same representation in the Committee with APNU which only secured 26 seats.On February 10, the opposition parties had used their majority vote in the National Assembly to revise the composition of the committee, which is responsible for appointing all of the other Parliamentary committees.The opposition wants the formation of the other committees to follow the same membership composition of the umbrella Committee of Selection.The government is insisting that since it holds the single largest bloc of votes in the National Assembly, it should be entitled to five seats on the committee, but the combined opposition parties disagree and are sticking to their position.The current committee is made up of PPP members Samuel Hinds, Dr Leslie Ramsammy, Indranie Chandarpal and Gail Teixeira, while APNU members are Amna Ally, Volda Lawrence, George Norton and Joseph Harmon. The AFC is represented by Khemraj Ramjattan.The opposition has argued that the Committee of Selection complied with every section of the Standing Orders of the Parliament which is in consonance with the Constitution of Guyana.But Standing Order 94 (1) states: “Every select committee shall be constituted as to ensure, as far as possible, that the balance of parties in the Assembly is reflected in the committee.”Yesterday, Prime Minister Sam Hinds said that a 10-member Committee of Selection allows for the computation of a proper balance for the parties in parliament. The PPP with 49 per cent of the votes would secure five seats; APNU with 40 per cent of the votes would have four and AFC with 11 per cent of the votes would have one.The proposed dispensation suggests that there is parity between PPPC and APNU.

Village Focus: (By Alex Wayne)Belladrum, West Coast Berbice, was just a quaint rural community. Even in the late 1980s the village still had shabby houses, small shops here and there, and large herds of cattle that traversed the roadways.Located some 45 miles east of Georgetown and nestled between the villages of El Dorado and Paradise, Belladrum Village, on the West Coast Berbice, has become the focus of my interest.Through the efforts of villagers and some governmental organizations, the village is rapidly changing, offering some things that were formerly associated with the city.Some villagers, who had migrated, have returned and have erected many of the well-established grocery outlets now present in the village.The state of one of Belladrum’s access dams during the rainy season.And this past week villagers were raving about the much-anticipated Miss Belladrum pageant, which was to be staged at the Belladrum Primary School. Junior and Senior queens were to be crowned and sashed at this event.Some focused on raising the level of entertainment for villagers and have established at least two smashing new nightclubs. But some persons are greeting this with misgivings. The traditional Co-cocabanna Disco has always been the haven of all entertainment, and has over the years attracted revelers from miles around. While the two new nightclubs are welcoming sights in the village some feel they will put the traditional nightspot at a disadvantage.Things have indeed changed as is evident even in the mannerisms and dress code of villagers. There was a time when the majority, especially the women, could be picked out from among large crowds by their somewhat tactless attire. Now the very ‘country lasses’ pack a severe punch with their now modern and sophisticated dress.Cattle rearing and poultry farming to some extent seem to be the main sources of livelihood. However the village has now produced its own teachers, clerks and other intellectual workers who are employed both in and outside the village.Cattle farmers provide fresh milk to villagers and of course meat. Still present in the village, too, are a few vegetable vendors marketing their items by pulling a cart and screaming their heads of, to attract the housewives who would come rushing out to select whatever they could for their kitchen and refrigerators.Some villagers prefer to drive minibuses while many sell snacks and other goodies in the school compounds.While it has been drastically reduced over the years, some fishmongers still ply their trade in the village, many of them housewives.While the village appears to be inhabited by jovial residents, these people lose their bon vivant when flooding during the rainy seasons, especially in the backland areas where most of their vegetable and rice farming is done, plagues them. They blame this on poor drainage and irrigation.The main access dams are in a deplorable state during heavy downpour making it almost impossible for farmers to get into the backlands.Some kitchen garden owners still recall the pain as they related the tale of destruction of their home use crops, which were flooded during the rainy seasons.There are needs, though. Some students say that the playfield needs sprucing up. Others called for streetlights along the side streets, while some bemoaned the fact that most of the side streets are not paved.Interacting first with the many bareback youths running in the pastures, some all muddied and giggling, caused me to realize that amidst the toils and struggles of this country, youths still have the opportunity to enjoy brilliant sunshine, swim in the canals, chase each other screaming down the side streets, and enjoy cool water coconuts in abundance.Findings coming out of our conversations proved that while the majority loved the academic side of things, others could hardly wait for weekends to go frolicking in the rain or under the sun.Intent on finding the real awakening of the village, I stayed overnight at a friend and awoke quite early the following morning. While the villagers were just about stirring I rose and perched myself in a precarious position on my friend’s verandah to bask in the glory of the ‘Belladrum Rising’At dawn on Friday, as the last crows of the cocks faded in the distance, husbands and other male breadwinners trickled onto the public road to await transportation to their various worksites. While some engaged in idle chatter, others seemed more concerned with accessing the first minibus or short drop car to worksites situated at various locations outside the village.Soon the streets became filled with vehicles and villagers now converged in numbers as they hastily went about their various chores.By now the golden sun was rising steadily above the horizon casting a jeweled dazzle on rooftops and the metal frame of steel fences. Soon after, the many groceries were opened as vendors attempted to attract the eyes of early buyers.While good business sometimes boom for some of these small shops, it is Joe White’s Grocery in the centre of the village that attracts the larger crowd since it offers groceries, cosmetics, C-Point top up and every imaginable necessity of the villagers.The lone Chinese restaurant in the village is never without customers since individuals from contiguous villages also flock the fast food joint to whet their taste buds with what many describe as the best ‘Chinese Food Ever’.With streets now filled with pedestrians, riders and drivers, NFL Jerseys Wholesale, I stopped to chat with a few grown men and found out that while the village can be described as ‘a hub of bustling activity’, there is still room for the introduction of some more ‘glitz and glamour’.During the nights, especially on weekends, music would boom from several small shops and youths would gather for merry conversation. On Saturday and Sunday nights all roads lead to the nightclubs where villagers and outlying residents all converge for a long night of steamy dancing.Whether it’s a simple stereo set or the customary one-man bands feature, villagers still seem to enjoy themselves.During the midways, the street is mostly dismal, it comes alive in the afternoons and early mornings with the boisterous chatters of students as they hurry to and from the Belladrum Secondary and Primary Schools.Keeping in close tab with their tradition Kweh-Kweh activities are still a vibrant feature among villagers and ever so often they gather in wild gyration and laughter as African drums beat the welcoming sound of a wedding to come.For the holy at earth, the massive and elegantly structured Seventh Day Adventist Church offers divine solace, or worshippers can switch to the Anglican Church situated in close proximity to the Belladrum Primary School and Cemetery.The interior of the primary school and the compound are the customary locations for the annual May Fair and Dance, which attracts revelers for widespread villages and the city. Many a man has met his wife at this function, as dictated by some very elderly villagers who relish in reminiscing on their folklore.One can safely say that Belladrum Village has now indeed moved from its somewhat primitive state to a village where modern transformation is constantly on the increase.
