Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George today dismissed the coalition’s election petition.

In her judgement, Justice George contended that nothing in the petition supports the claims of the petitioners as it relates to irregularities during the elections.

Further, she ruled that there were no breaches or violations by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), that would make the election a sham or travesty.
