March 29 is new date for Guyana Cricket Board election
Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr., on Friday afternoon announced March 29 as the new date for the Guyana Cricket Board election.
Below is a statement by the Minister
Having just concluded the required consultation with Cricket West Indies (CWI) (formerly West Indies Cricket Board), the public is hereby advised that the date for the Guyana Cricket Board election is hereby appointed to be the 29th March, 2021 pursuant to the Guyana Cricket Administration Act.
The public will note that the GCB election, previously appointed to be the 26th February, 2021, did not occur because of concerns raised with the duly appointed Cricket Ombudsman by one of the three stakeholders for the election.
A meeting was convened and held with the Cricket Ombudsman, the Attorneys-at-law for the stakeholders and the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport.
The Ministry maintains its confidence in the Cricket Ombudsman, Mr. Kamal Ramkarran, Attorney-at-Law, as a professional and as someone with the highest integrity capable of executing his function thereunder.
The Guyana Cricket Board election must be held as required by the Guyana Cricket Administration Act and the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport holds firm to this position.
