The Electoral Commission’s concerns on the Reform of the Public Order Act




PRESS RELEASE
OFFICE OF THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION








The Electoral Commission has responded to the Attorney-General’s reaction with regards to the Reform on the Public Order Act.

In a letter to the Attorney-General, the Electoral Commission was gratified to note that Government appreciated the contribution of the Electoral Commission towards the electoral reform process. 

The Electoral Commission recognized that the existing Public Order Act is an “overarching” piece of legislation covering all aspects of law and order in the country. However, the Electoral Commission consulted most recent legislation from other countries and considered what is deemed to be international good practice in promoting democracy as well as being guided by our Constitution. The Electoral Commission is firm in its belief that the current Public Order Act which dates from 1959 is outdated and needs to be revoked and replaced with a fresh new Act which reflects the desires of the President to “continue to promote democracy in our country” and “that Seychelles can become a shining example for the good governance and democracy in the world.” 

The Electoral Commission is conscious of its mandate as stated in Article 115A of the Constitution which states clearly that the Electoral Commission “shall review existing legislation governing electoral matters and make recommendations to the Government”. The Electoral Commission believes that recommendations can include introduction of new legislation. In proposing a draft legal instrument to the President, the Electoral Commission had no intention of usurping the authority of the Attorney-General’s Office, but this was meant to bring greater clarity to the principles of the Commission’s recommendations.
Furthermore, the Electoral Commission noted that a response on the Public Order Act had taken over 5 months and expressed concern at the time taken to consider the reforms. The Electoral Commission brought to the attention of the Attorney-General that immediately after the Parliamentary Elections in 2011; the President issued a reminder to the Commission to “speed up electoral reform”.

Unbelievable. Mr Govinden should be sent to get a private practice job. He is shaming Mr. Michel.

I agree with you 100%. The President is embarrassed by Govindens' actions.What is the Attorney General doing making press releases? It is unprofessional and unheard of in the legal profession. He also loves the SBC cameras.

In the Private sector to do what?This guy is under- qualify who will rent him for his or her case?maybe LUCAS?

We cannot let a comunuist impede progress and change.Is Michel afraid of change ask him to do everything to impede Changes?Or is RAm putting pressure on him not to change the status qou ,for he will lost his pension for life.

If EC and PP does not agree -i think a referendukm should be called.

Beaty HoarEau why don't you tell everyone how your father killed this poor guy. I cannot recall how many years ago it was, but I will find out the name and the place.

OK it was a car accident but why the hell did your father and brother remove this poor guy after driving over him with his car and throw him into the rocks while he was still breathing.

Woderful how karma works for it was the same place where your father had another car accident and died.

Mr Gill you need to look into this, it is not a joke or gossip it is bloody facts. James and Albert knows about this.I WILL SAY NO MORE THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK THEN COME BACK HERE AND TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT. SOMEONE ELSE ON YOUR FRIENDS LISTS KNOWS THIS STORY TOO WELL ASK HER.

UNGANDA To help seychelles in education field and J.-L ADAM is happy about it.Unganda itslef has a leteracy rate of 66 perecvent and Seychelles 92 percents.shoule Unganda be helping us or the contary ,or maybe first have their own people educated first?

Mr J Adam did Seychelles had a performing Seychelles colooge and REGINA MOUDI that used to provide High standard of eDUCATION TO OUR PEOPLE?wHY DID pp COMMUNSIT CLOSED IT BY FORCE to then tell us Three decades that Colleges left by our colonisators wher good as that in Uganda.

What we need as help if any is not from Unganda or African countires who all have leteracy rate far beoynd that of Seychelles,what we need as statistics show is help from Frnech speaking countries to help us get our French rate back to where it was beofre independence and before PP destroy Moliere langauge by introducing Croele as more importatn than Frnech for our people.

Maybe Pp should find help from Mauritius,REUNION and other French speaking countries not ENglish speaking countries..

PP,French is degrading in our countiry not Englisg ,donkeys,find solutions to problems we have.and the problem in our educationm system is FRENCH is degressing not English.

Govinden is derailing the electoral reform process.

No wonder SFP walked out and Boycott the process.

Now EC boycotts Govinden.

SNP NDP and Govinden will go it alone with PDM?

Well,we would not and should not allow an under-qualify idiot to rape the will of the majority.

Gappy though in the past had manipualte elections results to favor PP,seem to have decided to change the status quo for the interst of the country ,thus providing the basis for fair ,free,transparent, and democratic elections which the country needs should it get out of this chaos and make progeress.We might not be completely agree with all the refroms Gappy has put forward ,but his determination seems to be real ,thus we ,oppsotion parties shouold give him thheir total support in this endevour,in order that our people gain back their dignity and chose their leaders freely.

We know creole is our language,And it good as PP member you recognize that it is not Arabic.But ,Which Universtiies colleges would you go to In Euroep and elsewhere wher you would be taught in Creole?Is that waht you would need to make higher studies ?Pp should adanbone Creole as aprt of the curiiculum,and allow our childrens to concentrate on what they would need most in their lives and thier careers,namely English,French ,Maths, etc...Creole PP,could be a vonluntary things ,like doing P.E ,or taking music lesson etc

Pissedoff thinks our students will need Creole to study in ofreign universities.
OUr children have much more to leanr today then 20 years ago. suc has using new Technoloy(Computer)which they will the will come across in wahtever field they take.That is more improtant than wasting our children time learning Creole.Creole should be an optional subject,which one can learn later in his or her lives. Swiss children,for instance, do not learn Swiss-geramn at scholl but Geramn,French,etc.. for that waht they would need in the first place in their lives,careers etc.. Swiss german is optional.

In Seychelles, one often hears that in the Kingdoms of the blind - the fools are king.
It is so because of the existing conflict between Knowledge and Power! Those who have Knowledge have no Power and those in position of Power have no Knowledge!
Govinden is a classic example of this situation.
