Norway says final elections results need to be credible
Norway has joined the international community in calling for the final results of the March 2 general and regional elections to be credible and transparent.
Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway, Nils Martin Genneng posted on twitter that “Norway shares concerns expressed regarding recent electoral developments in Guyana. The final election results needs to be credible and transparent.”
Senior members of the diplomatic community in Guyana have joined with international observers to urge that the electoral process follows all transparent and credible procedures.
The Heads of Mission of the A,B,C countries and the European Union on Friday expressed deep concern over credible allegations of electoral fraud.
They also called on President Granger to avoid a transition of government which they believe would be unconstitutional at this time.
The U.S. Department of State has also urged that no candidate be sworn in until issues are resolved surrounding the declaration of unverified results for the country’s largest voting district.
Meanwhile, the international observer missions from the Commonwealth, the Organization of American States, the European Union, and The Carter Center has called for the transparent tabulation of results for Region 4 be resumed in order to proceed to the establishment of national results.
The observer groups said until this occurs, the result of these elections cannot be credibly declared.
