Gecom confident about accuracy of preliminary list –Deputy CEO
The Guyana Elections Commission (Gecom) is bound by the legal procedures guiding the removal of any name from the Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) or the National Register or Registrants (NRR), according to Deputy Chief Election Officer Vishnu Persaud, who says the body is confident about the accuracy of the list.
Persaud, who is also the acting Public Relations Officer of GECOM, told Stabroek News that the General Register Office would notify Gecom of any deaths. Those names would be “flagged as dead” on the NRR and when the PLE was being compiled those names would be extracted. He noted that the Commission had approved such a procedure that would only enable removals from the NRR and the PLE on the basis of records being forwarded by the GRO.
