Petitioners Claudette Thorne and Heston Bostwick want the court to determine among other things, questions regarding whether the elections have been lawfully conducted or whether the results have been, or may have been affected by any unlawful act or omission and in consequence thereof, whether the seats in the National Assembly have been lawfully allocated.
The main opposition APNU+AFC had filed two petitions challenging the results. Back in January, however, the Chief Justice dismissed the other petition after finding that the Party’s presidential candidate David Granger was not served on time.
The results of a national recount of all ballots cast showed that it was the PPP/C which had won the elections with 233,336 votes over the 217,920 which the coalition managed to secure.
