Respect recount and allow new gov’t to take office – OAS


The Organization of American States (OAS) notes that the Chief Elections Officer of Guyana, in direct opposition to the instructions of the Chair of the Guyana Elections Commission, has submitted a final report which includes data compiled prior to the national recount; data which had already been deemed to be questionable.

There can be no justification for this action. As intimated in our statement of July 10, this confirms that the Chief Elections Officer is acting in bad faith and contrary to the interest of democracy in Guyana.

Let us be very clear – the only democratic solution for Guyana at this time is respect for the results of the national recount. No other figures – neither those prepared prior to the recount, nor those recently invalidated by the Caribbean Court of Justice, nor any others that may be unilaterally devised by the Chief Elections Officer – can have any place in the final determination of results. A new electoral process is also an unacceptable solution.

Article 1 of the Inter-American Democratic Charter states that “The peoples of the Americas have a right to democracy and their governments have an obligation to promote and defend it.” It is past time that the current leaders of Guyana comply with their democratic responsibilities and allow the newly elected government to take its place.

In the coming days, the OAS General Secretariat will report to the OAS Permanent Council on these and other recent developments in Guyana.

    The Commissioner of GECOM is the biggest player/rigger in this saga. Either she is told what to do or Granger and his supporters have something against her. In public she instructs the authorities what she is expected as the Commissioner but behind closed doors she is giving instructions what should be the next move. The world is watching and Ms. Singh should be held accountable to delay the rightful winner. Ms. Singh has the authority to bring this to an end and so the rightful winner can begin to build Guyana and moves it forward in a manner where all the people can live a peaceful life. Ms. Singh is now the biggest fraud before Lowenfield..

    Is there one single person ….literate educated person, that thinks we can survive as a pariah state? When I heard the leading PNC agitator state in the video the other day “hampas, hampas, this is no time for hampas” in reply to Police Rank telling him he should be distributing “hampas” instead of leaflets!

    When does the fool think it is time for “hampas”? When people are to weak to come to the door?
