GECOM yet to decide on date for start of recount


The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) at its meeting Wednesday morning did not agree on a date for the start of the national recount of the March 02 general and regional elections.

Commissioner Vincent Alexander said GECOM has not received communication on the specific time and date for the arrival of a high-level team from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which will serve as the main observers to sign off on the credibility and transparency of the recount.

The National COVID-19 Task Force had said it had given permission to CARICOM to land a chartered flight with the CARICOM team on Thursday.

Alexander said the GECOM Secretariat is well on its way to being prepared to carry out the recount.

He said it was his opinion that once the team arrives, the recount can begin a day or two after.
