Guyana – Set the date for elections

Commonwealth Secretary-General, Patricia Scotland, has called on Guyana’s President David Granger and all relevant stakeholders and institutions to immediately set a date for fresh regional and general elections there.

A statement issued by the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat today says that Scotland is urging all stakeholders to restore constitutional rule in Guyana by immediately setting an early election date, enabling elections to be held without further delay.

In July, the Trinidad-based Caribbean Court said that the vote of no confidence which had been passed last December against Granger’s coalition administration was valid and urged all parties to adhere to the provisions of the country’s constitution.
