IAC welcomes re-establishment of ERC

first_imgDear Editor,The Indian Action Committee (IAC) welcomes the official appointment of the ten commissioners of the now reconstituted Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC), following their recent swearing by H.E. President David Granger.This is something that the IAC has repeatedly called for in the past, and which has long been overdue.Now that the Commission has been re-established, the IAC hopes that the next required step, the election of a chairperson, is expedited.The IAC, like the rest of Guyana, expects the Commission to begin functioning as soon as possible.The IAC takes this opportunity to wish the Commissioners the best in their endeavours, and to remind them of the charge given by President Granger regarding the execution of their duties without cowardice, malice and prejudice.The IAC especially congratulates its Executive Member Mr Neaz Subhan, who will be representing the Indo-Guyanese community on the Commission.The IAC, cognizant of the importance of this Commission for the fostering of harmony in our society, stands ready in support to ensure that its ability to function in the interest of all is not in any way inhibited.The IAC wishes to remind the general public that it is the official body that represents persons of Indo-Guyanese origin; and once the ERC is functioning, the IAC is ready to advocate before the ERC any pertinent issues and concerns brought to the organization by persons within its constituency for redress.Sincerely,Indian ActionCommitteelast_img read more
