Guyana: Date for elections in Guyana likely to be announced this week

A date for the holding of highly anticipated general elections may be set this week as President David Granger will tomorrow be meeting with the full Cabinet to discuss the issue.

“…we have had the first meeting and it will be coming up again…the fuller Cabinet will meet again on Tuesday. I have given them copies [of correspondence from the Guyana Elections Commission],” Granger said yesterday, on the sidelines of the second annual conference of the International Decade for People of African Descent Assembly-Guyana.

Elections are due following the successful passage of a no-confidence motion against the government on December 21 last year.

“This is urgent,” Granger added, while assuring that the meeting will be held this week.
