EU observer mission hopes for expeditious end to electoral process
The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) at the March 2nd general elections today welcomed the CARICOM observer report and says it trusts that GECOM will move expeditiously to conclude the recount process in accordance with data from the recount of votes.
The EU deployed a team of over 50 observers for the general elections but was unable to observe the recount.
A statement from the EU EOM follows:
The European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to Guyana welcomes the CARICOM observer team report of 13 June. The report reflects the findings of the EU EOM, which in its final report concluded that voting and counting were well managed all over the country, as was the tabulation of results in nine of Guyana’s ten regions. It highlighted that the integrity of the entire electoral process was seriously compromised by the tabulation of results in Region 4 by senior GECOM officials.
The EU EOM trusts GECOM to expeditiously conclude the electoral process in accordance with the data resulting from the recount as per gazetted Order No. 60 of 2020 and its addendum.
