Bougla Pe Dir Sesel Pou Arab

While the election commission was grappling with the reality of the Constitution of Seychelles being abrogated and the imminent death of the Third Republic under PL, State House announced late last week that Abu Dhabi government officials were in Seychelles to present us a master plan for the smallest capital in the world, the capital of Seychellois national pride, dignity, identity…..Victoria.

The Delegation Was Bigger Then a Football Team 

The delegation James Michel received on our behalf was bigger then a football team. It included the Abu Dhabi Director General of Planning Authority there and a plethora of underlings. It was an amazing display of the Michel’s friends coming to his aid, as he has forsaken our own people  into contributing in a valuable manner, on the development of Victoria.

Expo 2020?

What ever happened to the Sr. 22 Million Expo 2020? Was not that the expo of all expos? I visited the International Conference Center where the expo was hosted a couple of months ago. All the makkets and props were stuffed in a corner collecting dust. Sr. 20 Million in expenses and now it all collects dust. No follow up. Just a fancy show, parade everyone in, lights, action, put on a show, then puff, shut it down, collect the money, run like hell!

What About Qualified Seychellois Doing The Master Plan?

Why has James Michel not had qualified Seychellois contribute to a master plan and do it? That may sound like a hair brained idea to Mr. Michel, but it sounds like a reasonable and highly plausible idea to many Seychellois. We are not all meant to carry guns and shoot at our fellow brothers and sisters.

Some of us, can actually develop a master plan. Some could probably do it better then Abu Dhabi. One question though, I must ask Mr. Michel, what makes Abu Dhabi people qualified to do this job and Seychellois, not? You know, I use to write papers for these chaps in university. I am a Seychellois. Surely, we have capable Seychelles who can do this job? Lablache? Payet? Didon? Ernesta? Houreau? Chaka? Dogley? Malvina? St. Ange? Pool? Banane? Michel? Herminie? Decomarmond? Prea? Pragassen? Chung- tave? Dhanjee? Mancienne? Bibi? The list goes on and on. You get my point Mr. Michel?

Seychelles For Sale To Arabs

I have been receiving reports that numerous properties are up for grabs by Abu Dhabi in the coming days and weeks. This includes ex Beachcomber Resort  Praslin and St. Anne Resort, Raffles is up for grabs, Victoria frontage, Property all over South Mahe, Emirates Project Cap ternay, the list is daunting. What exactly is going through James Michel mind to sell interests in Seychelles to basically one family and country? Is he ok????????

Desperate Men Take Desperate Measures

Mr. Michel recently took over the Tourism portfolio. But he has not done much with it and we have not seen him do much with it. It is depressing to say the least. If anything, he has helped to destroy Tourism since he took over. It has been in my opinion, a little like the boy taking a toy and smashing it into a wall because he did not know how to wind it up. To make Tourism work, all players need to be engaged in a real way, and the playing field must not be said to be level, but it must actually be so.

More Desperate Moves

Surprisingly, many people do not know that Mr. Michel has taken over the portfolio for Planning, Lands and Land Use and Habitat. It is here where, we must be afraid, be very afraid, because Mr. Michel will sell anything he can likely, under his “Sesel Pou ARAB”- policy!

Remember the trick statement he made when he took office: “Judge me by my actions” and then he said: “I am President of all Seychellois”.

I guess a lot of passports will be sold in UAE over the coming months.

People of Seychelles, those in SPPF PL, do something about your leader!

Seselwa Unite!

Sesel Pou Seselwa!

May God Bless All Freedom Loving Seychellois!

Pierre’s power-hungry bid to enter the dud national assembly runs into more difficulties

Pierre’s last-minute bid to get back into the national assembly on the back of a boycott of the polls by the opposition was foiled by thousands of protest votes. He polled 3828 votes, a tally which must have included a sizeable number of Parti Lepep’s rent-a-vote. Since then, Pierre has been hoping Parti Lepep judges would give him what the opposition voters wisely denied him. After all, these judges have a sickening habit of giving Parti Lepep what it wants. Make no mistake. Parti Lepep wants David Pierre as Leader of Opposition. The message has been passed to the judges in no uncertain terms. Yesterday, it must have come as a shock to Pierre that Parti Lepep’s wish met with resistance from two judges. The manhunt for the elusive seat of Leader of Opposition moves to the Court of Appeal, leaving in its wake more damage to the reputation of the Attorney General and Sri Lankan Judge Burhan.

What’s Burhan up to ?

Pierre has no case for a proportionate seat at all. Morally. Constitutionally. Or in the interests of natural justice, as he argues. In fact it would be a travesty of moral renaissance, our much abused constitution and natural justice to give him a seat in the national assembly after that resounding rejection at the polls by those who also reject Parti Lepep.

There is a wide inconsistency in the various arguments being put forward by those who support David Pierre’s petition. Judge Burhan, Govinden, Hoareau and Pierre himself make different arguments. That shows how flimsy their case is.

From what we heard on SBC, Judge Burhan has not even bothered to explain his support for David Pierre. He has dictated that “total votes cast” means “valid votes cast”. That is quite clearly nonsense, as these two terms have different meanings in English and in election terminology. He had to explain why he thought the constitution meant “total valid votes cast” when it clearly says “total votes cast”. The judge failed to do that. Pending a reading of his full judgement, I find his decision despicable. We must remember that the Sri Lankan judge and Parti Lepep government go back a long way. He was a magistrate under SPPF. He was appointed a judge in 2008 and he perhaps has an eye on a contract renewal. He has oodles of reasons to try to please Parti Lepep through his decisions and this judgement does not dispel any of these reasons.

Govinden wades in to muddy the water

Pierre has made a consistent argument, but a false argument. He argues that in the past the calculation for proportionate seats was based on valid votes. He has not a shred of evidence to support his assertion. The facts show otherwise. The facts support the Electoral Commission. His call for natural justice and consistency is absurd.

Govinden argues that it is absurd to use valid votes to elect directly elected members and “another method” to elect proportional members. He speaks of confusion in a dramatic way. The only one putting confusion in the constitution is the Attorney General himself. He is fighting for Pierre because he knows that Michel wants him to support Pierre. He is twisting the facts and arguments to please Parti Lepep. He cannot be seen as an impassioned interpreter of the constitution. He is a disgrace. The constitution clearly makes provision for two separate systems for electing MNAs (directly elected and proportionately elected). A few months ago, he was telling judges that their job was to interpret the constitution and not to rewrite the constitution. Now he is asking judges to rewrite the constitution because a rewrite suits him in this case.

Govinden acts a fathead

It is clear that directly elected MNAs are elected under the well-understood first-past-the-post (i.e. the winner is the one with the most votes) system. A spoilt vote is excluded because it is not clear which candidate should get this vote. Under this system, only valid votes are counted for the candidates. That's logic.

Proportionate members are elected under a different system, clearly set out in that infamous amendment to the constitution in 1996. It is the application of this system that is at issue, not whether one system should be used for all MNAs as Govinden is saying.

It is possible for an MNA to be directly elected with less than 10% of the votes. This can happen if there are, say, 12 candidates standing in a district. In such a situation, the constitution does not say that someone needs to get 10% to get elected. The candidate with most votes wins.

But the constitution clearly says that no MNA can be elected on a proportionate basis unless their party has polled at least 10% of the total votes cast.

The issue is whether the constitution means all ballot papers placed in ballot boxes or just the valid votes (i.e. ballot papers where the voter has expressed a clear preference for one of the candidates). It is breathtaking that Govinden – the Attorney General – cannot grasp this issue. He too was intriguingly sued by Pierre. He has won and he is criticising the judges. How hard is he working at being a fathead ?

Constitution is clear -- 10% of all voters

Commonsense says “total votes cast” means all valid ballot papers in the ballot boxes. Commonsense says that there is a clear distinction between “total votes cast” and "total valid votes cast”. As the lawyer for the Electoral Commission says, one (total votes cast) is numerically higher than the other (total valid votes cast). Pierre had to prove otherwise to show that he had met the threshold of 10% stipulated in the constitution. His lawyer, Basil Hoareau, is the only one who came close to addressing the issue. But even he concedes that the constitution talks of all votes (valid and invalid). He argues that we should refer to the Election Act for further clarification. However, the Election Act explains how to count votes for directly elected members. It makes sense that all spoilt votes should be excluded before counting the votes for each candidate. For spoilt votes, the voters have not voted for any specific candidate. This provision of the Election Act does not clarify the constitution nor does it replace the constitution. The Election Act does not deal with the calculation of the threshold and the allocation of proportionate MNAs. Judge Burham had to explain to us why he thinks otherwise. It is not acceptable for him to insert any word (i.e. “valid”) in constitutional provisions which are otherwise clearly expressed. He is a judge, not a dictator.

Rene’s dirty deed comes back to sink Pierre and Misel

Sometimes it is necessary for us to consider what the legislator had in mind, if the constitution has been badly drafted. We all know why the constitution was changed in 1996. Albert Rene wanted to raise the bar, to stop the United Opposition getting into the National Assembly again in 1998. This was done by making it more difficult to get 10% of votes. Before the amendment, Ramkalawan got into the National Assembly with less than 10% under the original constitutional provisions. If the amendment had been in place n 1993, Ramkalawan would not have been elected as a proportionate member. It is quite clear that the National Assembly wanted to raise the bar in 1996. That explains why the constitutional amendment speaks clearly and unequivocally about “10% of total votes cast” as the threshold that must be met to qualify for a proportionate seat. That’s a higher threshold than that in the original constitution and it would have prevented Ramkalawan getting into the National Assembly had it been in place in 1993. That was also what Rene had in mind. They can wheel him in court to explain what he was doing. The constitution is clear on the threshold Pierre had to meet to get a seat. It is not two-toned like Pierre’s noggin.
