CARICOM Chair calls for declaration of elections results ‘without further delay’


See below full statement by the Chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Dr. The Honourable Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the  Grenadines, on the ruling by the  Caribbean Court of  Justice:

The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) welcomes the progress towards the finalisation of the electoral process in Guyana following the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on Wednesday 8 July. The Community calls on all stakeholders to respect the ruling of the CCJ, Guyana’s final court of appeal.

Indeed, the CCJ in the summary judgement aptly stated: “It has been four months since the elections were held and the country has been without a Parliament for well over a year. No one in Guyana would regard this to be a satisfactory state of affairs. We express the fervent hope that there would quickly be a peaceable restoration of normalcy.”

Accordingly, the Court’s ruling should lead to a declaration by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) of the results of the General and Regional Elections held on 2 March 2020, without further delay.

CARICOM commends the continuing patience and calm of the people of Guyana and calls on all stakeholders to respect the rule of law.

    I was the first Secretary of the PYO (Moses Bhagwan followed me). I now live abroad, but I have never left the PPP. Over the years, we have lost any elections. The PPP has never gone to court. The PNC (APNU) disgraces their founder by this behaviour. Our President (de facto) is indeed a sanctimonious gangster.
