On July 20th, more than a month after the CCJ upheld the motion of no-confidence against the APNU+AFC government, Jagdeo wrote to Granger, requesting that he and his Cabinet resign forthwith in accordance with the CCJ June 18th decision and its July 12th consequential orders.

In its consequential orders of July 12th, the CCJ said that the provisions of the Constitution mandating general elections in 90 days from June 18th, were in effect.
