PNCR wants ‘house-to-house’ registration to calm PPP’s fears
In an effort to quell concerns about the integrity of the country’s voters’ list, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNRC) has recommended that there be another round of house-to-house registration, an exercise which was last done a decade ago.
The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has constantly expressed fears that the voters list is being padded.
Just a few days ago, the Opposition Party warned that names of deceased persons will continue to be on the List of Registered Electors if greater care and due diligence is not exercised.
But PNCR’s General Secretary, Amna Ally has proposed there be a house-to-house registration process in order to address the PPP’s concerns.
“It is my recommendation for the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to now have a ‘house to house’ registration so that they can bring home the bacon for the PPP/C,” she said in a statement Thursday.
Ally, who is also the Minister of Social Protection, explained that a ‘house-to-house’ registration activity will ensure that all those who are alive will be on the voters list.
The General Secretary also took a swing at the former governing political party, saying “this is not the time for us to fiddle or attempt to confuse.”
“This is not the PPP/C Government. This Coalition Government believes in authenticity. We do not have to meddle and tamper with official records of a country…,” she stated.
