GECOM Chair lashes out at attempts to ‘create mischief’ in already ‘tense political’ environment
See below full statement issued by Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission
10 July 2020, GEORGETOWN – It has been brought to my attention that there is in circulation a purported recorded conversation between myself and GECOM’s Information Technology Manager, Mr. Aneal Giddings along with several allegations of a plan to manipulate systems to ensure a certain party is declared the winner of the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections.
In this regard, I wish to emphatically state that I do not have knowledge of any such conversation nor am I involved in any plot to ensure any particular party is declared the winner of the 2020 elections.
There has been a transparent process to count the votes and the legal process has taken its course. There is absolutely no need for manipulation. The circulation of such recording and peddling of those allegations are designed to create mischief in an already tensed and charged political environment.
Those responsible for such unlawful actions are urged to desist from doing so immediately to ensure an environment of trust, peace and stability.
