Georgetown, Guyana, South America.
Chief Justice Roxanne George, today, 31st of March, 2020, ruled that the injunction filed by Ulita Moore to block the recount of Region 4 votes is unconstitutional.
The Chief Justice noted that, “GECOM must act independently to resolve difficulties which may arise,” and that “the CARICOM recount was a mechanism for recount over which GECOM had control.”
A recount of Region 4 votes of the March 2020 elections was scheduled and a high level CARICOM team had arrived in Guyana to supervise the recount when an injunction was obtained by a “private citizen” by the name of Ulita Moore to block the recount. The CARICOM team was forced to leave and Mr. Granger said he “regretted” that the team had to leave.
The CARICOM commented that “it is clear that there are forces that do not want the recount to take place.”
