GECOM Chair invites President to conversation with Opposition Leader

Georgetown, Guyana (August 2, 2020): President David Granger, this morning, received a call from the Chairman of the Elections Commission, Justice (ret’d) Claudette Singh who invited him to a conversation with Opposition Leader, Mr. Bharrat Jagdeo to discuss the way forward. 

The President explained that he had no objection to speaking with Mr. Jagdeo but as far as a proposed declaration is concerned, he recognised that the Commission has a legal obligation as a result of the recent ruling of the Court of Appeal, to proceed with a declaration. 

President Granger said that notwithstanding that declaration, the APNU+ AFC Coalition maintains that the anomalies and irregularities which have been uncovered during the recount process cannot be accepted and will form the grounds for an election petition.
