Leader of the Opposition Joseph Harmon today said that there will be “serious resistance” by the APNU+AFC coalition if Local Government Elections (LGE) are not held next year as mandated by law.
“…..Local Government Elections must be held so that communities can choose their leaders. Since the APNU+AFC came into office in 2015, we had two Local Government Elections in 2016 and 2018. The next LGE is due in 2021,” Harmon said.
He was at the time delivering remarks at a Region Four Regional Democratic Council meeting.
During his address, Harmon said that the Opposition has noted statements made by President Irfaan Ali that the LGE will not be held until problems surrounding the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) are addressed.
