President David Granger on Friday afternoon met with Opposition Leader, Bharrat Jagdeo and PPP Presidential Candidate, Irfaan Ali to discuss issues surrounding national elections.

Speaking with reporters outside State House following the meeting, Mr. Jagdeo said the two sides took the time to clarify their position on those issues which include the September 18 deadline for elections.

They also discussed the resignation of the Cabinet and the ongoing House to House registration exercise consistent with the work programme of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).

“I think it is early and we hopefully will meet again sometime soon,” Jagdeo told the press following the meeting which lasted for just over one hour.

While he is holding firm to his position that elections should be held by September 18, Mr Jagdeo was asked about possibly agreeing to an extension of this deadline under certain conditions.

In response, he said: “what should happen is what I asked the President to do- which he has not done – and is not willing to do, which is to issue a proclamation dissolving the Parliament, name a date for the elections consistent with what the Constitution says and then that is a positive signal to start the work and have the Cabinet resign.

“Then…in that context, I don’t mind sitting down again, myself and Irfaan [Ali] and talking about this.”

“Right now we have not made a decision on that because there is no date and there is no reasonableness on the part of the Government,” Mr Jagdeo said.

The Opposition Leader referred to statements made recently by PNCR Member Dr George Norton who had noted the Government will accept the ruling of the High Court as it relates to House-to-House registration, however, Jagdeo also noted that there are other PNCR members who believe that the registration should be completed.

The PPP believes the registration exercise is being used to delay the elections and has argued that a simple Claims and Objections period can be used to register persons who would have reached the age to vote after the last elections.

Friday’s meeting came one day after the President met with Chairman of GECOM Justice (ret’d) Claudette Singh and Commissioners.

This caretaker President is playing a **** up nasty, dangerous game. 

He has been meeting with the ABC and European ambassadors providing updates that has no foundation.

He meets with Gecom for 8 mins, now he meets BJ and nothing comes out of these meetings. 

I believe he’s is displaying a false hope to the international community. 

This is a dangerous **** in man.

Cde Dave, One don’t need to be nasty. Guyana need politeness like we see in Cde Granger and Cde Nagamootoo. 

Cde Dave, is that your photo?  Cde with such a face do not make fun of Arss.

Any elementary grade child would have no trouble understanding that to not have elections by September 18, 2019 (already 6 months later because of the PNC backed Coalition refusal to obey the laws) would be a violation of the Constitution. I remember many Coalition supporters here stating that they will wait until the CCJ give their consequential order and they will obey those orders. It is now nearly a month since those consequential orders were given and unfortunately for those supporters' reputation, they have back tracked on their promise. But those supporters are just mere aiders and abetters. The real  culprit is Granger and those who follow him. The PNC is indeed a scourge to Guyana.

Georgetown, Guyana – (August 9, 2019) President David Granger, this afternoon, met Opposition Leader, Mr. Bharrat Jagdeo at State House to discuss matters relative to the holding of General and Regional Elections (GRE).

President Granger, who was accompanied by Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Mr. Joseph Harmon, maintained that the Elections Commission has to advise him of its readiness before a date can be named.

The President explained that there is a “zone of convergence” in that both sides have maintained their existing positions. “I will continue to abide by the Constitution and pay attention to the Chairman of the Elections Commission who will advise me,” the President said.

The Head of State said reference was made to the Consequential Orders of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) and their respective interpretations. Government maintained that the CCJ did not issue any coercive orders.

“I made it clear that it is impossible if not impractical for me, even though in the final analysis I have to proclaim a date, I could not do so without the advice of the Elections Commission,” he said.

The President is hopeful that Chairman of the Elections Commission Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh, SC, CCH, would communicate the Commission’s position to him in a week’s time.

“We agreed that it is the Elections Commission which is central to this process; it is an electoral process; it is not a governmental process or parliamentary process. It is an electoral process which is entirely in the hands of the Elections Commission,” the President stated at the conclusion of the meeting.

He has noted the dates and timelines which have been mentioned in the media but reminded that it is the Elections Commission which has to advise him before he proclaims a date.

“Everything hangs on what we are told by the Chairman speaking on behalf of the Commission,” the President said while remaining optimistic that the Commission will communicate with him next week.

“We are looking to hear something, maybe in a week’s time. At the same time, I would like to assure the public that the meeting today with the Leader of the Opposition was important and beneficial. It helped to clarify issues which still exist within the two sides. There has been no agreement but greater clarity on the positions of the two sides,” President Granger said.

During the meeting, the Head of State maintained that the Official List of Electors (OLE) has to be credible.

“We referred to our meeting with the Chairman of Elections Commission on Thursday and we feel that her request, to be given an opportunity to hear the judgment of the Supreme Court and meet with the members of the Commission, was a reasonable one. We would like to engage with her after she has done those two things. So, the two sides are working towards a consensual outcome and the Government’s position has not changed. We are pursuing a course that can guarantee a credible list and can be the basis of credible elections…We are working towards seeking common ground so that the Guyanese people can be assured that we would have credible elections in the shortest possible time,” he said.

Similarly, Mr. Harmon made it clear that no agreement has made between the two sides with respect to a date for GRE. “It is clear that the Opposition had their views on how they see the activities with respect to having credible elections…but the President has made it clear that he will not be naming a date which can in fact become impractical for the Commission to accomplish,” he said.

The Director General reminded that the Government has to ensure that the Commission has all its resources to facilitate the holding of GRE.

“The President made it clear that he would like to see early elections and that he has provided all of the resources that the Elections Commission required for them to work…it would not be in our interest to super-impose any coercive measures on the Commission that they cannot meet,” Mr. Harmon added.

The two sides have agreed to meet again after both the Chief Justice’s ruling scheduled for August 14 and the meeting of the full Commission.

Mr. Jagdeo was accompanied by Mr. Irfaan Ali.

Ms Ali should explain why she supports Granger and Nagamootoo disobeying the constitution instead of her comrade this and that shit.

Nagamootoo did more and stood up for the PPP much more than many but because of HIS CHOICE he is everything but a human being, you people should be ashamed of yourselves. Reminds me of something regurgitated here often, "dem does eat yo food, an when deh done, is bore deh does bore yo plate man"

No thanks whatsoever, but instead, insult.

The dog the brings the bone, also carries the bone.  Anyone who talks down of food they ate, even from their siblings, are dangerous and dutty creatures!

You saw I attended that PPP meeting in NY, first ever for me, I never touched the food.  Even if I’m starving, the stray dogs could have it.  I had a beer with one PPP GNI Banna 16 years ago, I hearing till today I want free beer.

Them Crab Louse can gorge and get fat and lethargic on their own supply, I prefer to eat lilbit, but do so with dignity!
