Opposition-nominated commissioners accused of stalling GECOM’s work as walkouts continue

For the eighth time in a row, the statutory meeting of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) ended prematurely yesterday due to a walkout from the opposition-nominated commissioners, one of whom has suggested that all meetings be suspended until the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has ruled on the legality of the December 21st No-Confidence Motion against government.

Opposition-nominated commissioner Bibi Shadick told Stabroek News that she will continue the action for as long as the commission attempts to discuss house-to-house registration.

“Since March 26th, when all we did was go through minutes of the three meetings prior, we have discussed nothing because they have been unable to present a plan for the holding of elections without house-to-house… as long as GECOM proposes to discuss house-to-house registration, I will continue to walkout. House-to-house registration is not constitutional… it is not the law, Continuous registration is law,” Shadick explained…..
