I cannot believe that a country of approximately 800,000 citizens and a potential electorate of about 400,000, cannot get its act together and have elections by March of 2019. The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is dragging its feet on such a critical issue. Certainly, if GECOM was efficient, it would have gotten its act together and set about getting its wheels in motion since in December, when the no confidence motions was passed, in The National Assembly. There is still enough time to call an election by March of this year.
Start working on a March 2019 National and Regional Elections.
Well you bloated the population. Spend some time to look at the Constitution about Elections.Were you vocal when Ramouthar porogue parliament and was holding on to government ? Elections in Guyana isn't a trivial matter, lots of voters can be disenfranchised. There are over 2000 polling stations to be manned, done by mostly school teachers, can holding of Election in 90 days looks plausible ? Guyana is no first world country.
My brother, was anyone disenfranchised during the recent LGE. Secondly, did anyone who was not eligible to vote actually voted in those elections? Thirdly, did Ramotar violate the constitution when he prorogued parliament in 2014?
Well little brother,perhaps there were disfranchised voters in the recent 2018 LGE. The PPP stymied democracy by not holding local government elections and planting interim management for over two decades. The people having not understanding the real intent of LG and the elections, not accustomed going to these polls, may have caused low turn out.
Ramothar used his Presidential power to suspend parliament, for his gov't to hold to power, he chose that route to avoid the debate in parliament, the ills practiced by the PPP running the gov't .In a nut shell his government didn't want the people to know. With that said,you can be the judge if there is any violation.
Government are elected to serve for five years. The life of the current gov't was cut short by frivolous accusations and circumstances that seems questionable, appears it's a grab for power by the opposition leader by whatever means possible.
There will be about additional 82,991 legible voters in 2020, this group is the 10-14 yrs old. (Source 2012 Census) If elections are held this year, part of this group need to be registered, it's their democratic right.
