Jagdeo encouraged after GECOM meeting
…maintains March polls unacceptable
Following a meeting with the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) yesterday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that a March elections date was totally out of the question, while another member of his delegation has claimed that GECOM Chair Justice (ret’d) Claudette Singh has committed to “working towards a timeline of having elections long before the end of the year.”
“We believe elections can be held long before the end of the year so we made a case for that,” Jagdeo told reporters after the meeting.
The Secretariat of the Guyana Elections Com-mission (GECOM) last week presented to the commissioners a draft schedule of timelines which sets the earliest date for General and Regional Elections as March 2020.
