The Ministry of the Presidency has rejected claims made by Opposition Member, former Attorney-General, Anil Nandlall that there are plans afoot to remove the Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Justice (Retired) Claudette Singh.
Nandlall made this claim in a statement to the media earlier today, captioned ““The sanctimonious gangster on the prowl… and the clinical insanity continues,”.
The Ministry has rejected his contention, regarding it as “outrightly wicked and highly outrageous”.
“Mr. Nandlall’s accusations are dishonest, malevolent, dangerous and based on spurious and unsubstantiated fiction. This statement is clearly aimed at creating panic and confusion amongst the citizenry. The Ministry, therefore, calls on every right-thinking Guyanese to reject this statement and to condemn Mr. Nandlall for his attempt to instigate fear and confusion in the country,” the ministry said in a statement today.
It continued: “President Granger has repeatedly said and demonstrated that he respects the integrity and autonomy of the Elections Commission and that he would abide by any declaration that the Chairman makes in keeping with the laws of Guyana. The Ministry of the Presidency calls on Mr. Nandlall to retract his baseless and irresponsible assertions.”
