Prime Minister, Hon. Moses Nagamootoo has met several regional and international observer mission teams ahead of Monday’s General and Regional Elections.

Deeming the engagements fruitful, PM Nagamootoo expressed his satisfaction with the responses he received from the delegations.

“I think they understand the turf, they understand the nature of the Guyana society and they are also very optimistic of what they have seen and what they said … they haven’t seen any incidents that would raise their concerns,” he stated.
