ABCE Countries call for no transition of power until Region 4 issues resolved

On Friday, the Heads of Mission of the Embassy of the United States of America, the British High Commission, the Canadian High Commission, and the Delegation of the European Union to Guyana issued a joint statement expressing deep concern over what they believe are “credible allegations of electoral fraud which may influence the results of this election.” The release went further to state that “[they] call on all to ensure proper procedures are in place to yield a credible election result.  A fair and free process is vital for the maintenance and reinforcement of democracy in Guyana. We call on President Granger to avoid a transition of government which we believe would be unconstitutional as it would be based on a vote tabulation process that lacked credibility and transparency.” This announcement came following a meeting with President David Granger on Thursday evening. During the meeting, the President asserted that the Executive branch is not interfering in GECOMs electoral process as the elections commission is an independent body.
