The Coalition of Civil Society Groups is calling for action from the country's leadership on "grave and urgent matters".
In an advertisement in today's Gleaner, the 13 groups and seven individuals named as signatories, welcomed Richard Azan's resignation as junior transport, works and housing minister for his role in the Spaldings Market affair.
The Coalition of Civil Society Groups is demanding a national statement by Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller in response to the Office of the Contractor General's report on the Spaldings Market matter and the investigation into the bidding process to provide 360MW of power to the national grid.
The civil-society members say a statement from Simpson Miller would give a clear indication of the Government's intentions with respect to the recommendations outlined in both reports.
Dr Carolyn Gomes, executive director of Jamaicans for Justice, one of the signatories, said the desired actions speak to transparency and accountability.
"These are important issues that need to be dealt with in order for the people to have faith in their Government and, in fact, if their Government is working on their behalf," she said.
Gomes said failure to act "would be a very poor signal" from Govern-ment of how it views governance.
"If it doesn't happen, we're left in a position where we wonder about the veracity of the language that has been used over and over again and the commitments that are being made by this prime minister and this Government to transparency and accountability."
Meanwhile, the groups also want, at tomorrow's sitting of Parliament, the recommendations on campaign-finance reform to be accepted and drafting instructions issued for legislation.
The third demand is for immediate release of the final bidders' evaluation report done by consultants, Mott MacDonald, in relation to the 360-megawatt project.
Gomes said if the Government fails to deliver, the coalition, through consensus, would decide its next move. She said there are a number of options, including "raising these issues at the newly minted Partnership For Jamaica, and taking them to the dispute mechanisms of that partnership".
Gomes said if the response is poor, as an extreme measure, the groups will consider withdrawing from the partnership.
