Granger defends the appointment of female commissioner, rejects criticism of GECOM appointment

Georgetown, Guyana: May 5th, 2012 — In an invited response to the AFC’s Mr. Khemraj Ramjattan, M.P., Leader of the Parliamentary Majority, Brig. David Granger pointed out that APNU’s nomination of Ms. Sandra Jones to be a GECOM commissioner was made on the basIs of “pure merit.” APNU’s partners jointly concluded that of the competing candidates, Ms. Jones was by far the best qualified candidate, with over 25 years experience in both the private and public sectors.
Brig. Granger sought to remind Mr. Ramjattan that despite clear pressures APNU supported AFC’s nominee and Party Leader, Mr. Raphael Trotman, to be Speaker of the National Assembly, a position of singular constitutional importance and prominence. Brig. Granger also felt that it was high time the parliamentary majority nominated a female commissioner, and said that he hoped that Mr. Ramjattan would agree that more women should be involved in crucial decision making processes.
