-- in GECOM spat

By Neil Marks

OPPOSITION-nominated commissioners on the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) met President Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday and could be reconsidering their withdrawal from the body, having asked GECOM to give them time “to ensure” that they would be contributing to the holding of general elections this year.

After meeting the President, Mr. Robert Williams, on behalf of his colleagues Mr. Haslyn Parris and Mr. Lloyd Joseph, turned up at yesterday’s adjourned statutory meeting to ask GECOM Chairman Dr. Steve Surujbally to postpone the meeting to next Tuesday.

GECOM said he explained this was to allow them time to consider the outcome of their meeting with the President and Wednesday’s meeting between President Jagdeo and Opposition and People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) Leader, Mr. Robert Corbin.

“Against this backdrop, Mr. Williams noted that the request, which he was making on behalf of the OPPP (Opposition Parliamentary Political Parties) nominated-commissioners, was aimed at allowing them to ensure that they would be contributing to the holding of elections with which all of the people of Guyana could be satisfied,” GECOM said in a statement.
