SNP STATEMENT ON REVISED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT - July 05, 2011
Following the publication of a second set of proposed amendments to the Constitution for the purpose of setting up an Electoral Commission, the SNP wishes to state its position clearly.
The revised amendment proposes that the Electoral Commission shall be made up of 5 persons to be appointed by the President from a list of 7 proposed by the Constitutional Appointments Authority (CAA).
The SNP finds that this is worse than the first proposed amendment, which was withdrawn, in the sense that the President, a political figure, the leader of a political party and in all probability a candidate in the future elections, will have the sole authority to name the Electoral Commission. This process cannot ensure independence and is very likely to lead to a Commission which is under the control of the President and therefore cannot be acceptable.
The appointment of other Boards by the President, for example the SBC Board, has not given any example of fairness and balance meeting the requirements of democracy. The SNP therefore seeks the necessary safeguards for an Electoral Commission to be truly independent and to have all the means to undertake the mandate of organising free and fair elections effectively.
The whole process as proposed, from advertisement, applications from interested persons and nominations will be meaningless without a non-political method of appointment to ensure a Commission in which the interests of all political parties will be taken into account.
The SNP deplores the manner in which the Constitutional Amendment has been brought, withdrawn, revised and presented again without any attempt at consultation and reflecting the wishes of only one political party.
Where was SNP when Dhanjees Right's were Violated? Who Gave to Ignore Order??
The appointment of an Independent Electoral Commission is only one of the issues that need to be considered in establishing a fair electoral process. Among other issues which are of utmost importance are the independence of the state-funded media, the control of campaign financing and the prevention of abuse of state offices and resources.
Was It Fair On MSR An Opposition When SNP Stayed Silent??
The SNP does not accept that these issues will be left to the Electoral Commission to consider after its appointment. It believes that there should be an agreed program of electoral reform which will encompass all the requirements for the democratic conduct of elections.
Who Said This MSR????
The SNP believes there should be a process of consultation involving the existing political parties as the principal stake-holders together with representatives of civil society. It reiterates its proposal for the formation of an Electoral Reform Commission comprising of representatives of political parties, religious organisations, civic society and international organisations concerned to discuss the various issues and set out a program of reform.
The ending of the Boycott was an act of treason and SNP Sold Out Just As did D.Pierre!!
