The headquarters of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Railway Road, Kitty.

The Alliance For Change (AFC) on Tuesday called for the appointment of a new Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chairman in two weeks.

“The Party now believes that the process of appointing a new Chairman should be undertaken with the utmost urgency and concluded within two weeks,” said that party which is a member of the governing coalition.

The AFC made known its position after Retired Justice James Patterson resigned Monday from the GECOM Chairmanship because the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) found his unilateral appointment by Granger flawed and unconstitutional.

Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has since formally informed Granger that he was willing to meet with him daily until a new Chairman is appointed.

That party called for early consultations to be held in good faith between the President and the Leader of the Opposition so that a new Chairman can be appointed “without delay.”

Declaring its respect for the CCJ’s rulings on the constitutionality of Patterson’s appointment and the validity of the December 21, 2018 no-confidence motion, the AFC welcomed Patterson’s resignation.

“The AFC is committed to the rule of law and to adherence to the Constitution of the Republic of  Guyana and is of the view that the resignation of Justice Patterson as Chairman of GECOM
subsequent to the Court’s ruling was correct and proper.

The AFC, which is the second largest party in the governing coalition, contended that the appointment process of a new GECOM Chairman is critical to public confidence in the outcome of the
next General and Regional Elections and that “there is no shortage of fit and proper Guyanese persons acceptable across the political divide to fill this position.”

In light of the no-confidence motion, the AFC said it is GECOM, under a new Chairman, that should advise on the earliest date for such an
election.

The AFC pledged its support for holding of elections within the shortest
possible time frame advised by GECOM, and urged the Parliamentary opposition to support any reasonable extension of the Constitutionally required period for the holding of elections.

Jagdeo has already said his People’s Progressive Party would not support the holding of elections later than September, 2019, but Granger is insisting on polls after the voters’ list is cleansed through new house-to-house registration.

AFC wants new GECOM Chairman in two weeks; extension to allow fresh registration

In light of the no-confidence motion, the AFC said it is GECOM, under a new Chairman, that should advise on the earliest date for such an

election.

Perhaps, AFC and its leaders are completely unaware that elections MUST be held within three months from the date of the CCJ judgement -- which is in September, 2019.

Extension to this date can ONLY be granted with the approval of two-thirds or more of ALL members of parliament.

I don’t think the PPP has the kind of DNA that makes the PNC so wicked.

What is this thing about extension for fresh registration?  Why are they following the PNC in every step and pretending as if they are an independent party that works in the interest of Guyana?  

I thought GECOM was responsible for continuous registration. What were they doing since the last election? Who was paying the head idiot? Is SOCU involved in this scam? Why they need "fresh" registration? They should have had daily registration.

No the PPP DNA says that its perfectly OK to hail a FARC operative as Guyana's National Hero.  I expect a stature erected for Roger Khan should the PPP win.
