Six South American nations have last Wednesday, 22th of July, 2020, joined the international call which is steadily growing louder for a democratic transition of government in Guyana, South America. These calls come in the face of the APNU/AFC’s blatant refusal to concede defeat after having lost the the March 2, 2020 elections in Guyana.
The six nations, which are members of the Forum for the Progress and Integration of South America (PROSUR), include: Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, Colombia, Chile and Ecuador.

Prosur Statement on Guyana
The governments of Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Peru, members of the forum for the Progress and Integration of South America, PROSUR, express their concern about the delay in the conclusion of the general and regional elections held in the Cooperative Republic of Guyana, carried out on March 2, a situation that threatens the stability of that country and threatens democratic principles.
They emphasize that one of the essential guidelines of PROSUR is the observance of democracy, the rule of law, the respective constitutional orders and the promotion, protection, respect and guarantee of fundamental freedoms.
They call on the Guyanese political forces to respect the popular will and to declare the final results as soon as possible based on the vote recount observed and certified at the time by the CARICOM Mission, supported by the OAS and European Union and they value the follow-up that the OAS carried out on the situation in Guyana.
