[Nationa News] – Prime Minister Mia Mottley will be leading a delegation of regional leaders to Guyana tomorrow. She will be going to the South American country in her capacity as head of the Caribbean Community  (CARICOM).

Mottley made the announcement this afternoon during a national address from the Hilton Barbados where the Social Partnership met to discuss COVID-19.

Guyana held regional and national elections last Monday, but no winner has been declared.

Instead, the matter is tied up in a Guyana High Court after an injunction was filed by a supporter of the main opposition People’s  Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) to block the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) from declaring results.

Should the declared results from the disputed Region 4 stand, the ruling coalition A Partnership for National Unity plus the Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC) would secure another term in office.

There has been some unrest in the streets of Guyana, and last Saturday, Mottley issued a statement urging all parties to come together for a peaceful solution. (SAT)
