The Communist party of
, PL, have called for a “Renaissance in Morality in our country. The call came by a National Day speech by sham elect President elect James Michel, and subsequently a national committee headed by designated Minister, Vincent Meriton, was appointed with Fifteen (15) members, from a cross section of the society. There are more people on this committee then players on a football pitch. Seychelles
Appointment of Chief Justice
I was perplexed to note the appointment of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Seychelles, His Excellency Justice Fredric Egonde Ntende, to this Committee.
The Chief Justice has not politely declined the invitation and advise the executive branch, that appointing a Chief Justice in a subordinate manner to an executive branch steering committee headed by a designated minister, is a gross violation of the principle of Separation of Powers that sets parameters on how the executive branch is to run a country, and set a course for the division of national responsibilities within the parameters of the principle.
Under the doctrine of Separation of Powers, the Judiciary branch and the Executive branch are separate and distinct branches of government. They must function in total independence of one another.
When you blur this Mr. Michel, by brining on the Chief Justice to do executive branch work, you kill a democracy and create an autocracy, similar to what we see in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
What we have stewing now is some sort of pig food mess in a pot that Michel wants to pass off as a Democracy and we must all remain silent or face his Communist wrath. Judges, will be part of an executive committee. Soon Ministers, will think they can be judges, and MNA’s will think they can be ministers or ministers.
Appointment of Legislative Branch MNA’s
In what appears to be a total act of desperation, the PL have even gone so far as to appoint MNA’s from the legislative branch of government to head a steering committee of the executive branch. This is complete nonsense, and I am perplexed by SNP MNA Mr. Bernard Georges, not overtly declining the invitation politely in writing. A legislator cannot be a member of an executive branch steering committee.
If it is permissible, then pigs can fly as well.
St. Ange will tell us, “Sesel Sa” and wear his baseball cap about carnivals. That type of perverted thinking must be stopped by decent people in our community. If not, we will never know where to draw the lines in society, with that, our morality as a nation will remain in the dust bins that Michel has admitted openly where it is.
What Should Have Been Done
I fully understand what Mr. Michel is trying to do to address a serious issue. But he simply cannot do it as he has. What he should have done is blessed an organization such as LUNGOS with ministerial support and backing to bring everyone together and chart a path forward on national morality issues. LUNGOS could then make recommendations to the Consul of Ministers, then they could issue directives by adopting resolutions on morality that the Executive branch would then adopt and implement.
Our System Is being Corrupted
The guiding principle of Separation of Powers in the governance of our country is being blatantly corrupted by James Michel. Everyone seems to be playing along out of self interest and remain silent similar to what a mistress would do on the sidelines while she tries to milk every ounce of finance and material benefit from a lover, with complete disregard for the well being of the lover’s family at home.
Perhaps that is why we have a morality issue on a national scale in
: “too many people stay silent and just play along…….as if nothing is ever wrong”. When we do that, we each become a mistress to lack of morality in our country. Seychelles
A Call For One Inter Faith Representative
Good luck on finding an interfaith representative for your committee….that violates the scared democratic principle of Separation of Church and State.
Let us see if the Churches will play along with this charade.
The Country is bankrupt, it will get more bankrupt in the coming years, don’t you communists think it is time to start taking national decay a bit more serious?
Sesel Pou Seselwa!
May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!
