High Court injunction blocks recount


High Court Judge Franklyn Holder has granted an injunction blocking a national recount of votes cast on March 02, 2020.

President David Granger, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and the CARICOM Secretariat had agreed to a national recount of all votes with a CARICOM high-level team to supervise the process. But Justice Holder also granted an injunction to block the recount until the matter is heard on Friday.

The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), which had agreed to the recount, on Tuesday said it was awaiting legal advice. Up to press time, GECOM had not said if it received that advice.
