Ballots contained in 49 boxes were counted today as Day 11 of the recount of the votes cast in the March General and Regional Election concluded this afternoon at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre (ACCC), Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara.

According to the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Spokeswoman, Yolanda Ward, some 11 ballot boxes were processed for Region Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam); 14 for Region Three (Essequibo Islands/West Demerara); 13 for Region Four (Demerara/Mahaica); and 11 for Region Five (Mahaica/Berbice).

GECOM now has 14 days to count the remaining 1,811 boxes, as it explores the possibility of establishing additional stations. The National COVID-19 Task Force (NCTF) was asked to do an assessment before such measures are set in place. A subsequent visit was done, but the body is yet to submit a response to the Commission.
