There are children who are sitting in positions of authority who shouldn’t be there, and who would love nothing more than to maintain their position, says Pastor Randy Rodney
There are children who are sitting in positions of authority who shouldn’t be there, and would love nothing more than to maintain their position, says Pastor Randy Rodney.
Rodney says it usually the most vulnerable ones who suffer the most, and persons in power with the most to lose that resist change the hardest.
As a result, this type of governing system depicts nothing more than grown men acting like children in positions of power.
He says there are a lot of underhand shenanigans happening within the country, and that persons must now pay close attention to the voters list within their constituencies.
He says at the end of the day, whoever wins the elections should win it fair and square and legitimately.

2. CALL on you to make a public statement that you will ensure that there is in minimum clean registers of electors for the holding and conduct of general elections constitutionally due by May 2020 to ensure that such elections will be as free and fair as possible. To that end as an act of good faith and commitment that you will remove the current Chairman of the Electoral Commission and appoint to that post with immediate effect a totally unbiased statesperson, without conflict of interest.
3. ASSERT that we will continue with public marches and demonstrations and, if necessary civil disobedience, as well as beseeching regional and international support inclusive of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and other like institutions to put every pressure on your office and that we will not allow the holding and conduct of general elections on the basis of the current registers of electors.
