Private Sector welcomes decision to fire Lowenfield, others
Please see below statement from Private Sector Commission:
The Private Sector Commission (PSC) wishes to note its satisfaction and register its support relative to the Ruling given today by the Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh to terminate the services of the Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield, Deputy Returning Officer, Roxanne Myers, and District 4 Returning Officer, Clairmont Mingo for their attempts to derail the election process and the will of the people.
The Commission commends the Chairperson and GECOM Commissioners, for having brought this matter to closure.
The Private Sector Commission from the beginning has publicly advocated that GECOM’s decisions be transparent and in compliance with the law and consistent with international standards and best practices. The PSC believes that this decision is a step in the right direction in restoring public confidence in the Guyana Elections Commission, especially as we approach the holding of Local Government Elections.
The PSC will remain committed in its efforts to honor its role as a key stakeholder by promoting and advocating for a non-partisan, fair and democratic process in conducting elections in accordance with the law.
