Guyana: PPP/C plans to challenge recount in Court

EVEN as the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is putting systems in place to facilitate a National Recount, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is planning to challenge the process for a fourth time in the Courts, a reliable source has said.

Since the conduct of the March 2 General and Regional Elections, the PPP/C, under the leadership of Bharrat Jagdeo, has filed at least three legal proceedings in the High Court, and according to the source, if its demands to the Commission are not met, the party will move to the Court at some stage of the recount.

On Wednesday, Executive Member of the PPP/C Anil Nandlall wrote the Chairperson of the Elections Commission, Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh, requesting a meeting to discuss the National Recount of ballots. The letter was written on behalf of the General Secretary and Leader of the PPP/C, Bharrat Jagdeo.
