The three-member high-level team from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has submitted it’s report on the General and Regional Elections recount process to the office of the Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Justice (retired) Claudette Singh.

This was confirmed earlier this morning by GECOM’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Yolanda Ward.

The CARICOM team’s report comes on the heels of the Chief Elections Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield’s final report on the process.

The official deemed the electoral process not credible, and has faced harsh criticism from several political groups – which question his ability to make such pronouncements on the process.

The CARICOM high-level team was led by Cynthia Barrow-Giles, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Government at the University of the West Indies (UWI), John Jarvis, Commissioner of the Antigua and Barbuda Electoral Commission and Sylvester King, the Deputy Supervisor of Elections of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Commissioners at GECOM will meet today at 1pm to continue the deliberations on the CEO’s report.

The nation anticipates a declaration of results tomorrow.

Elections were held on March 2.
