Georgetown, Guyana, South America.
The CARICOM team, as urged by the David Granger Administration, has announced yesterday, 14th of June, that they would present their report of the recount to the Guyana Elections Commission today, 15th of June, 2020.
Today, the CARICOM Team has provided their report and by all indications they are in favor of the declaration of winner based on recount results.
The CARICOM Observer Team to Guyana has indicated that the recount reflects will of the people and enables a declaration which can be used to install a legitimate and democratic government.
In a key section the report says:
“Overall, while we acknowledge that there were some defects in the recount of the March 02, 2020 votes cast for the General and Regional elections in Guyana, the Team did not witness anything which would render the recount and by extension the casting of the ballot on March 02, so grievously deficient procedurally or technically, (despite some irregularities), or sufficiently deficient to have thwarted the will of the people and consequently preventing the election results and its declaration by GECOM from reflecting the will of the voters. The actual count of the vote was indeed transparent.”
This report starkly contradicts that of Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield, which indicates that the elections were fraudulent and therefore cannot be used to install a government.
It is now up to GECOM Chair, Claudette Singh to do the right thing and declare the PPP/C the democratically elected government of Guyana as was reflected in the recently concluded recount.
