Ramsey Ali became the new president of the Guyana Cricket Board today at the GCC pavilion amidst controversy and an unprecedented media shutout.
The media has in the past been able to cover the meetings but were told they would not be allowed in.
Ten delegates voted – nine from Essequibo and one from Berbice. The delegate from Berbice will now face disciplinary action for going against the mandate of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB). As a result of the way the elections were conducted many officials labelled it as unconstitutional and illegal especially since only one county board voted fully. David Black was the lone delegate from Berbice who broke away from the decision taken by the BCB to not participate in the GCB elections.
