THE opposition-nominated commissioners boycotted yesterday’s statutory meeting of the Guyana Elections Commission but a source said the meeting was still held with a legitimate quorum as provided under the Constitution.

Opposition-nominated Commissioners Mr. Haslyn Parris, Mr. Robert Williams and Mr. Lloyd Joseph have withdrawn from GECOM meetings, claiming dissatisfaction with the leadership style of Chairman Dr. Steve Surujbally.

The three commissioners did not, as they had indicated, show up for a statutory meeting last week which meant that, under Section 7 of the Constitution (Amendment) Act No. 2 of 2000, the Chairman would be obligated to adjourn the meeting for two calendar days, since it requires four out of six commissioners – two each appointed by the President and the opposition, respectively – to constitute a quorum under normal proceedings.

That adjourned meeting was scheduled for last Friday but according to sources, one of the opposition commissioners showed up and requested that the absence of the other two be excused.
