Gocool Boodoo among 16 applicants for Chief Elections Officer job

Eight years after his contract as Chief Elections Officer of the Guyana Elections Commission was not renewed, Gocool Boodoo is hoping to make a return to the Guyana Elections Commission.

Multiple sources at the Elections Commission have confirmed to News Source that Mr. Boodoo, who served as Chief Elections Officer up until 2013, is among sixteen persons who have applied for the top GECOM post.

Boodoo’s contract was not renewed in April 2013 following a majority vote of the Commission not to rehire him. He was accused of attempting to declare erroneous results in 2011 which would have given the PPP a majority win although the combined opposition secured more votes.

It was Commissioner Vincent Alexander who drew attention to the issue, which resulted in the PPP leading a minority government and the combined opposition holding the majority in the parliament.

Before that, Boodoo was also accused of a miscalculation of votes in a previous election that gave a Region 10 seat to the PPP, when the seat should have really been given to the Alliance for Change.

Boodoo has always denied any wrongdoing. When he was removed as Chief Elections Officer, he landed a Local Government Consultant job under the PPP Civic administration.

A senior official close to the Elections Commission said it is mind-boggling and offensive that Gocool Boodoo is now seeking a return to GECOM with all that the Commission has found itself dealing with over the past year.

A few months ago, GECOM terminated the contracts of its Chief Elections Officer, his Deputy and the Region 4 Returning Officer after the Government nominated Commissioners tabled a motion to terminate their contracts.

The three officials, Keith Lowenfield, Roxanne Myers, and Clairmont Mingo are currently before the Courts facing various charges of misconduct in public office and allegations of fraud related to last year’s general elections.

The termination of their contracts triggered a search by the Elections Commission to public vacancies to fill the posts as soon as possible.

The full Commission is expected to meet tomorrow and begin going through the list of persons who have applied for the top GECOM.

Perhaps the PPP will reward him for giving them the AFC's seat in a previous election.

But you categorically admitted that the PPP rigged the election. Granger et al are no match to the PPP's riggers. They are the best. Your words.

Do you have something against rigging? Apparently not cause you are yet to condemn the 2020 election rigging caught on camera. Yuh see fighting fire with fire as something against blackman rigging huh? How about if ppp double down, hire Mingo and give him for the rigging job and give him six house lots instead?…hahahahaha [maniacal laughter]

I have no qualm about my position [hypocrisy as you called it] it is shared by the entire civilized world including CARICOM, oas, eu, abc etc. To date,  no country or no one outside of the brain wash PNC rigging supporters see jumbies voters.

What ever happened to the classified evidence of PPP rigging since 1992  you said you and only you possess and was supposed to passed on to relevant authorities? Can you share them here now or are they still classified?

Show me your company and I will tell you who you are.  Look at the history of Gocool Boodhoo and Omar Shariff for example and you see what the PPP has become.  This is not the party of Cheddi Jagan anymore.  If Cheddi was alive he would have disassociated himself from Jagdeo and his acolytes.  Boodhoo is an election rigger and Shariff a money launderer and they both are running to be the new Chief Elections Officer.  Is there anyone who believes they would be independent?

You are a Granger supporter, a known rigger, so I guess using your methodology that would make you a rigger. Granger the world known rigger is running for office as we speak, being  a rigger didn’t disqualified him from the highest office in the land so what’s your point?

Sounds like Freddie K,everyday  in his articles rigging is plastered on one side ,that is done to cover the rigging of the other side.Y'all will never condemn the attempt by Gocool to change the formula for allocating seats in favor of the PPP .

Well your logic is as warped as your hyena like laughter.  That you would accuse me of of being an election rigger or supporting same is highly insulting and ungrateful behaviour.  My efforts to bring about free and fair elections in 1992 are second to none.  Were it not for people like me you would still be living under a dictatorship.  So go fly a kite.  You will note that Granger currently has libel cases against Guyana Times, Kit Nastimento and others seeking damages in the hundreds of millions of dollars. If you are brave enough disclose you identity and you could become famous.

Hyena, don't think that you are protected by hiding behind the handle " Sachin_05". Do you think the PPP will help you when you get sued?
