DPI, Guyana, Friday, May 29, 2020

An additional 82 ballot boxes were today reviewed in the ongoing national recount of the March 2, General and Regional elections.

So far 1,555 ballot boxes have been recounted with 784 remaining.

At the end of Friday, 25 ballot boxes were recounted at the four workstations for Region Four and 25 for Region Six.

Agents overseeing the recount of the Region Eight ballots saw eight ballot boxes completed today. Regions Nine and Ten saw the completion of 11 and 13 ballot boxes respectively.

1,521 Statements of Recount(SOR) were tabulated for the General  Elections, and 1, 491 for the Regional.

As the national recount moves towards the end, government counting agents  continue to unearth mounting anomalies, which, APNU+AFC counting agent Aubrey Norton said, are clear instances of electoral fraud.

The government has already commenced providing evidence to the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) on all its objections to those fraudulent cases. The evidence will guide the commission in its deliberation towards the final credible results.
