I am standing in full support of commission member James Fuller, with regard to his comment in yesterday’s issue of The Daily OBSERVER.
I do not speak on behalf of the “Boundaries Commission”; there is a chairman. I stand to defend the principles of appointment. As far as I am aware, there is nothing in the law that speaks to looking out for the interest of a party or individual.
Disparity in numbers has been an issue for various election supervisors and visiting bodies, which have observed our elections over the years.
It seems as if talking about fairness to a politician is akin to talking to a pig about making bacon.
The abolishing of constituencies is nothing new. It started since the third elections of 1960.
I need to know who, at this time, are the representatives for the constituencies of St John’s City South, Barbuda, St Johns City North, St George, St John’s Rural North, St Philip, St Peter and St Luke.
Whenever elections are called, your contract to represent a constituency comes to an end. A fresh mandate from the people will get you back in.
