Granger, Jagdeo meet on GECOM Chair


President David Granger on Thursday afternoon met with the Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo at State House to discuss the appointment of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).

News Room understands that the meeting is still ongoing.

President Granger, earlier this month, had expressed an interest in meeting with the Opposition Leader to discuss the third list of nominees which he had submitted for considering of the post in light of the ruling handed down by the Chief Justice Acting Roxanne George-Wiltshire.

Jagdeo, however, had questioned why the President wanted to meet with him, expressing hopes that the meeting would be called for Granger to announce his decision.

The last set of nominees includes Major General Joseph Singh, TeniHousty, Sanjeev Datadin, Annette Arjoon-Martins, Onesi La Fleur, and Krishnadatt Persaud.

News Room will provide details on the outcome of the meeting as it becomes available.
