EU urges all to uphold constitution
The European Union (EU) delegation to Guyana said it looks forward to free and fair elections being held in line with all constitutional provisions.
Following the December 21 No Confidence motion, elections are due by March 19, unless the National Assembly agrees on an extension.
Chief Justice Roxane George-Wiltshire last Thursday declared that the motion was validly and lawfully carried. The Government has signalled its intention to appeal.
In a statement, the delegation of the European Union said it welcomes the expeditious handling of the related court cases so far and hopes that the further legal process can be expedited, for the benefit of Guyana, its people and its development, in view of pending Foreign Direct Investments [FDI’s].
It added: “The Delegation of the European Union calls on all concerned bodies and stakeholders to uphold the Constitution, respecting democratic procedures and the rule of law. Procedures should be managed efficiently, with openness and transparency.”
