‘Guyanese have waited long enough, declare results now’ – UK Gov’t official
The United Kingdom on Saturday again urged the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to declare the winner of the March 2, 2020 polls in keeping with the recount figures which show a victory for the People’s Progressive Party by over 15,000 votes.
“Guyanese people have waited long enough for election results. Now all legal processes have been completed I urge Guyana Elections Commission to declare a result based on @CARICOMorg scrutinised recount. Every vote must count, all must respect those votes, regardless of the result,” tweeted Baroness Elizabeth Grace Sugg, the UK’s Minister for Sustainable Development and Overseas Territories.
In late April, Baroness Sugg had said that the UK remains “deeply concerned” about the elections and the subsequent events that followed.
She had noted that the UK remains fully engaged in seeking a resolution to events in Guyana which upholds its fundamental commitment to democracy, good governance and the rule of law.
