 The Constitution requires GECOM be always ready for elections within 90 days. Their inability to be ready now should not be a burden on the Constitution or the Guyanese voters. They should have started the ball rolling from December 23, 2018 as

Guyana in political crisis after suspension of parliament

I didn't see anything in the article stating that the Ramoutar government acted illegally or squatted illegally in office. I see where he prorogued parliament which is a perfectly legal parliament facility. Maybe he was smart enough to avoid the kind of embarrassment that the Coalition have been handed on December 21, 2018 so he decided to end parliament early. That said, he began working toward elections which were held some one year before the normal length of that parliament. The Coalition fools didn't insist that he just hang around until the entire duration of that parliament like they are saying now as one of their non-credible excuses to continue squatting illegally in office even as the office is officially closed. For the love of Pete, it is now more than 6 months since the successful passing of the NCM and the Coalition is still p-ussyfooting instead of attempting to do the right thing.

You have missed the point, article was posted for reference,

 regarding "The Constitution requires GECOM be always ready for elections within 90 days"

I didn't miss anything. The Coalition stupidly went ahead with NCV thinking that Jagdeo was not going to succeed. Their stupid yukking before the vote and their sour-puss faces after Charrandas voted with the Opposition solidified how ill-advised it was for them to go that route. But by going that route, they are bound by the rules of the successful passing of a NCV which requires that elections be held within 90 days of that motion's passing. Ramoutar who the Coalition used to say is stupid showed how much smarter he was than them when he chose to use a different legal facility of parliament. He prorogued parliament and by proroguing parliament, he was legally bound to either return to parliament within 6 months and face the same NCM or hold elections before that 6 months had elapsed. Prorogue occurred on November 10, 2014 and elections were held on May 11, 2015. Well, he did the decent thing and held elections and although he believed in his heart that he won those elections, he still did the decent thing or packing up his office and leaving even as he was filing a motion in court to challenge GECOM's decision not to do a legally binding recount given the closeness of the vote counts. He even announced on November 10, 2014 that elections would be on May 11, 2015 so there were no p ussyfooting from him from the onset about his intentions. This Coalition has been p ussyfooting since December, clutching on one unreliable straw after another solidly demonstrating their inability or willingness to do the right thing.
