It simply means that people who bought passports ând were illegalily purchase our passports to become Seychellois should not posses land in our country.Selling passport Gappy is not a right nor legal in our constitution not even in our immigration law that means anyone who bought passports and were illegally sold to them by Pp is unlawful and since they illegalily obtain their nationality illegally all that follows buying land,being Ministers are illegal.What makes it so difficult to understand that And since Gappy holds a very import position does he have a duty and obligation to know well the law of this country?

Gappy think when he raises this quetion we will be afraid to tell him what it is.No Gappy;pp ac illegally and raped the law of this country and do not think we will tell you the contary,becuase we will not legitimize illegality .And Gappy if youhave a problem with it ,the solution is simple show us where in our constitution and rules of law it is stated that Pp has a right or the people of Seychelles have given Pp the authority to sell our passports dito to our land?Bring physical proof,you just have to refer to the constitution and bring us the physical proof if what we say is not true.

Gappy attempt is simple he wants to impede the registration of the party he does not have any motive to do so,then he tries to invent a motive.And his motive is predetermine,he would like to affliate the part with racism thus he will ahav e an excuse to again illegally refuse the set up of a new party.So he wants us to say illegal passport selling by PP should be accepted and recognized though it is illegal.We not communists but democrates -rule of law are made to be respected and abided with ,if you wrong or illegal we will continue to tell you loud and clear,and without fear.

Exactly,you know any thing that have to do with the person of Chris seems to be a personal problem for Gappy.He is so pathetic that instead of reading the constitution he wants a personal explanation form Chris.What is it that is unclear Gappy that you need an extra expalnation? My niece of five years understand the article without problem,what is it so difficult Gappy?

Gill write Gappy in KREOL so there will be no more excuses!
If HE don't understand,he will need to ask Madenm CHOPPY.

I understand the frustration of all those concerned.

However, please remain calm and patient.

Mr. Gappy has raised one single issue, by operation of law and legal interpretation, it precludes him from raising any other issues.

However, that does not mean we will not be bamboo -zooed in the Courts.

Having said that, being bamboo - zooed does not hurt us, we are all strong in mind and spirit; it only hurts the impressions of the Public and International Community of our structures of state, which already, do not look very democratic or healthy.

Remain strong, calm and patient for Seychelles.

We remain optimistic.

Register SFP Mr. Gappy!

The clarification shows there is no other issue at hand.

Let's move on!

SFP will never be registered, get lost idiots!

This is a mere attempt to delay the process so that SFP hopefully(in the eyes of Gappy) may get a reply after the deadline for registration in order to participate in the coming election. Upon receipt he will take his time to process the reply and registration.

I can only recommend SFP to be patient and reply in a correct and clarifying manner. That way there will be no excuses for further delay. Chances are hower that Gappy will look for an excuse to make it unconstitional, hence have a reason to deny registration.

Article 7.

Les personnes qui, immédiatement avant l'entrée en vigueur de la présente constitution, possédaient la citoyenneté seychelloise en raison de leur naissance, de leur ascendance, de leur naturalisation ou de leur immatriculation la conservent dès lors au même titre par application du présent article.

So its clear what we mean with bonafide.

Gappy could have sought legal consul advise on the terms definition.

It is not proper for him to delay SFP registration.

Agreed with last comment. Commonwealth Observers said clearly in the LUNGOS meeting and in the Report that Commissioner must facilitate the democratic process, not stifle it or trip it up so to speak.
