GECOM Chair hopes for ‘greater compromise’ by Commissioners after Court ruling


Please see below full statement from Justice Claudette Singh, Chair of GECOM:

“As Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), I would like to express my gratitude to members of the public and the eleven (11) Political Parties that participated in the 2nd March, 2020 General and Regional Elections for their patience and level of sobriety shown, particularly over the past week, while they await the completion of the electoral process.

“It is important for all relevant parties and members of the public to note that while GEOM is a Constitutional agency, it is still subjected to the Laws of Guyana; hence the mandatory injunction granted against the Commission and the Chief Election Officer on Thursday 5th March, 2020, has affected the finalization of the Commission’s work at this point.

“The Guyana Elections Commission, however, is cognizant of the sense of urgency with which the Commission must complete its work, as such, it is anticipated that there will be a greater level of compromise by the six Commissioners in agreeing on the next steps, following the decision of the Chief Justice.”
