that is not what I said. The old list must be purged of its dead people and people who left the country using exit data and death listings. Anyone who wants to be registered can and should be allowed to register with presentation of id and personal information. They can also register when getting a license etc' I know they do not collect post office data yet but in time that should be another way of cleaning the list. It is absurd to have to go and harvest a voters list by house to house registration every five years in a democracy. A workable list depends on the plan to register and clean the list continuously so that elections can always be viable in 90 days. 

Whatever methods that are used there isn't going to be an election in the near term.  And this is NOT what Jagdeo is demanding.

Any revisions will have to be verifiably transparent.  You know full well that two aged men rubbing their hands with greed and power lust (that is Jagdeo and Harmon) cannot be trusted to do with without eyes watching them.

We couldn't get an election under a new constitution so at least we need one with a proper voter list and you aren't going to get that done in 2 weeks.  Given anticipations that Guyana will be wealthy and that benefits will accrue to those affiliated with those in power this will be a far more important election than we have had for a while.  If you think that tribal paranoias were fierce before they have become even moreso now. 

There is a lot of hype about what GY will supposedly become and so the tribal stakes are even higher than they ever were.

As to all of those sources of information that you think people have.  If its a major project to get a birth certificate you think that all of that data is lying around the place?   I bet its not doable within a 90 day period, given how primitive GY is.

Purging the list can be a simple problem of creating a list of those who were added since the last two cycles and checking them for validity. A statistical protocol can be used to gather data to substantiate the list after cleaning.  That number should be around 70 k after dead people are removed etc. I am not intimidated with who are prone to violence. I am guided by the truth and the through is house to house registration is irrelevant in a modern democracy. It is the voter's right to get on the list by voluntarily submitting their application at a designation collection site.
