US hints at possible sanctions

On Thursday, Acting Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs Michael G. Kozak advised the Guyana Elections Commission to follow the procedure for the tabulation of SOPs as outlined in the High Court ruling on Wednesday. Kozak’s tweets are as follows:

“We join the Guyanese people and the international community in calling for Guyanese election authorities to follow accepted procedures and allow international election observers to verify the results. It is essential that the High Court-mandated elections tabulation in Guyana be concluded in a free, fair, and transparent manner. Under U.S. law and practice those who participate and benefit from electoral fraud, undermine democratic institutions and impede a peaceful transition of power can be subject to a variety of consequences. De facto regimes do not receive the same treatment from us as democratically elected governments.”
