30th of June, 2020. Georgetown, Guyana, South America.
You’ve probably heard the old saying, “some people don’t know their time and place.” Well here’s a good example of that. While the entire world is warning that David Granger should concede defeat and step down, the Georgetown Mayor, Ubraj Narine, in a press statement called for the swearing in of Mr. David Granger for a second term in office.
Apparently, Mr. Ubraj Narine is ready to stand up to the 35-members military alliance which is the Organization of American States, as well as the United States, European Union, Canada, CARICOM, the COMMONWEALTH etc.
In his press statement, the Mayor says that the coalition has won the elections according to Mr. Lowenfield’s report which he submitted on the 23rd of June, 2020.
For immediate release
H.W. Pandit Ubraj Narine
Mayor of Georgetown
SWEAR IN PRESIDENT DAVID GRANGER
The Office of the Mayor of Georgetown is, today, calling for the swearing in of President David Granger and is endorsing the commencement of a second term for the APNU+AFC Government.
The Office of the Mayor is of the firm belief that the APNU+AFC has won the March 02, 2020 polls based on the Chief Elections Officer’s report of June 23, 2020, which was submitted in accordance with Section 96 of the Representation of the People Act and Article 177(2)(b) of the Constitution of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana; taking into consideration the Order of the Court of Appeal in the Eslyn David v Chief Elections Officer et al.
The CEO’s report accounts for the valid votes cast in these elections and as such shows a clear win for the incumbent APNU+AFC Government. In light of this, the Mayor’s Office is calling on all stakeholders to accept the outcome of these elections. Guyana needs to move forward and can only do so with the support of all Guyanese at all levels of Government and society.
Guyana remains a free and sovereign Nation, holding all democratic principles and practices to the highest legal standard.
It is necessary, now more than ever, for the day to day functions of the Government to commence unhindered. The Guyanese people deserve, at least, this much.
I thank you.
