With only two months to meet the deadline of gathering 1.5 million signatures for a Recall Election petition for California Governor Gavin Newsom, its realization is turning uncertain as days pass by.
An effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom was launched in June 2020 and supporters of the recall have until March 17, 2021, to collect the 1.5 million signatures required to recall the election.
Details On Gavin Newsom’s Recall Election Petition
Newsom was criticized by the petitioners for his inability to handle the Coronavirus pandemic outbreak in the State, tax increments, the high rate of unemployment and homelessness, sanctuary city policies, suspension of the death penalty, rationing water use, and restricting parental rights.
Owing to their frustrations, the petitioners filed the Recall Election petition for Newsom, five times to date but failed to qualify. With the approaching deadline now, the petitions seek an extension of 120 days arguing that the restricted movements during the pandemic have been a hindrance in circulating the petition and obtaining the signatures.
The Lifting Up Of Stay-At-Home Order By Newsom
Experts are saying the recent lifting of the stay-at-home orders in California by Newsom as a strategy to fend off the Recall Election. Newsom has been accused of freely exercising his power without providing any authentic data to the public that went into the making of the decision to lift up this order.
Gavin Newsom, while announcing this lifting up of the stay-indoors order, announced the increased ICU capabilities of the different counties, citing specific percentages.
His assurance to the people that the pandemic situation has improved and it’s the right time to reopen business and trade might have been applauded by the traders/retailers but some do smell it as something fishy.
