Guyana: Granger says elections will be on March 2nd-not conditional on parliamentary extension

President David Granger now says that General and Regional Elections will be held on March 2, 2020 whether or not the opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) returns to Parliament and grants an extension.

On Wednesday in an address to the nation, Granger cited March 2, 2020 as the earliest date for general elections but did not issue a proclamation of that date as is legally required and fuelled further doubts about the way forward when he insisted that Parliament must meet to grant an extension of the period for polls, a demand the opposition PPP/C had repeatedly said was out of the question.
