Attorney General meets EU Ambassador
Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall on Friday met with European Union Ambassador Fernando Ponz Canto at the Attorney General’s Chambers in Georgetown.
According to the Attorney General’s Chambers, Mr Nandlall began the meeting by thanking the Ambassador for the role the EU played during the 2nd March 2020 National and Regional Elections, “more specifically, in the battle to ensure that the will of the electorate was respected and that democracy prevailed.”
The Attorney General updated the EU Ambassador on the Government of Guyana’s short-term and long-term plans for the development of Guyana.
Mr Nandlall informed the Ambassador of the Ministry’s plans in the areas of constitutional reform, law reform and electoral reforms, his Chambers stated.
According to a statement from the Attorney General, the EU Ambassador endeavoured to assist the Attorney General in these areas, specifically, in the area of citizen security, which the Ambassador pointed out is lacking.
Further, the Attorney General informed the Ambassador that Guyana being a budding oil and gas country would require legislative help, since we have little to no legislative framework in place to manage and regulate the sector.
The Ambassador presented the Attorney General with the European Union Election Observation Mission Guyana 2020 Final Report.
