The Private Sector Commission today stayed that they checked with the Carter Centre representatives and they denied that their 2015 recommendation had anything to do with reducing private residences as places of polling. They asked the Carter Centre to publicly deny what Claudette Singh said. Did Claudette Singh lie? If so,she should be jailed.
The Carter Centre report and recommendation regarding private residences as polling places is online. Find it and the read the recommendations for yourself. The PSC could have done that too.
Here is the relevant section of a preliminary report:
Location of polling stations. Because of the lack of state establishments in some areas, 166 of Guyana's 2,299 polling stations are located in private buildings and residences. While the establishment of polling stations on private property did not seem to negatively influence public confidence in the electoral process, GECOM should ensure that citizens can cast their ballot in a neutral environment.
