GECOM will not flout the Laws of Guyana

March 8, 2020, GEORGETOWN – The Guyana Elections Commission as the Constitutional agency responsible for the conduct of General and Regional Elections in Guyana is cognizant of the series of events which unfolded since the close of the Polls on Elections Day, 2nd March, 2020.

While it is unfortunate how things have escalated, it is the intention of the Guyana Elections Commission to abide by all legal and procedural requirements to conclude its work.

On Thursday, 5th March, 2020, a mandatory injunction was granted against the Commission and CEO which as a consequence impeded the finalization of the Commission’s work.

The recent action of the Chief Election Officer indicating to the Chairperson and Commissioners that his report in the relation to the final declaration was completed was not intended to disregard the Court proceedings but rather apprising the Chairperson of the completion of the document and  that she may convene a meeting at her convenience. In relation to this matter, no meeting was scheduled.

GECOM remains resolute in the fulfillment of its constitutional and statutory obligation.
