EU observers welcome CARICOM elections report

THE European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM) to Guyana has welcomed the report of the CARICOM Team on Guyana’s elections, which it believes reflects the position it shares.

“The report reflects the findings of the EU EOM, which in its final report concluded that voting and counting were well managed all over the country, as was the tabulation of results in nine of Guyana’s 10 regions,” the EOM said in a release on Wednesday.

It added that it expects that the Elections Commission will “expeditiously conclude the electoral process” in accordance with the recount data and in keeping with the gazetted Order No. 60 of 2020 and its addendum.

The EU EOM had presented its final report on Guyana’s General and Regional Elections, noting several shortcomings by the GECOM; political parties and other stakeholders on June 5. The report was handed over by EU Ambassador to Guyana, Fernando Ponz Cantó, to Chair of GECOM, Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh.
