The Private Sector Commission (PSC) notes its satisfaction and registers its support relative to the ruling given yesterday by the Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Justice (Ret’d) Claudette Singh to terminate the services of the Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield, Deputy Returning Officer, Roxanne Myers, and  District 4 Returning Officer, Clairmont Mingo for their “attempts to derail the election process and the will of the people”.

The Commission said it commends the Chairperson and GECOM Commissioners, for having brought this matter to closure.

“The Private Sector Commission from the beginning has publicly advocated that GECOM’s decisions be transparent and in compliance with the law and consistent with international standards and best practices. The PSC believes that this decision is a step in the right direction in restoring public confidence in the Guyana Elections Commission, especially as we approach the holding of Local Government Elections,” the commission said

It added that it will remain committed in its efforts “to honor its role as a key stakeholder by promoting and advocating for a non-partisan, fair and democratic process in conducting elections in accordance with the law”.

The former employees were fingered in alleged attempts to manipulate the results of the last General and Regional Elections in March 2020. They are before the courts facing several charges.
