Attorney Estevan Perera remains the chairman of the Elections and Boundaries Commission, despite calls from the new administration for him to resign. Earlier this month, Perera issued a letter quoting section eighty-eight of the Constitution, which speaks to how a person by law is removed from the commission and that the appointment should not be confused with those made for statutory boards. Today, News Five spoke to the chairman, who seems to be having a change of heart.

Estevan Perera, Chairman, Elections & Boundaries Commission

“That matter is still being considered by me. I am not in a position to speak on it yet. As soon as I am, I will let you know. I will be in a position to speak about it shortly, before the end of this week. But because of certain considerations, personal considerations that I am looking at, I am not in a position to respond to that as yet.”

Duane Moody

“Sir so you are having a change of heart?”

Estevan Perera

“It is not about a change of heart and when you read the acumen I sent out to the news companies that were presented, I clearly indicated that the letter was to educate the public as to what the position entails and what is required of the position. It did not signify a decision either as to whether or not I will remain in the position.”

Steve Says Sayonara
Another man who holds a constitutionally enshrined post, has decided to bend to the government's wishes and resign. That is the former chairman of the Elections and Boundaries Commission, Steve Perera. The Prime Minister announced in the House of Representatives last month that he expected Perera to resign with the change of government, especially since, as Briceno put it, he is a UDP.

Perera bided his time and today he has finally made his decision public. In a statement he sent to us, he said that while it is unfortunate that the composition of the commission has become politicized, he realizes the importance of the government having to utilize its remaining resources. As such, he does not want to be the cause of unnecessary delays since GOB has decided not to work with the commission as it was previously composed.

And while his tenure was short, he said that he was grateful for the opportunity to assist the country with the November 2020 general elections. He ended his statement by hoping that future commissioners are not asked to resign by political parties, and that they should be allowed to enjoy the protections of their tenure.
