[www.inewsguyana.com] – Berbicians are turning out slowly at a few polling stations along the Corentyne Coast. iNews visited the Manchester, Whim, Tain, Port Mourant and Rose Hall Town polling stations and the turnout at those voting locations was poor up to about 8:30 hrs on Monday, May 11.
iNews spoke to numerous voters who expressed satisfaction with the manner in which the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is conducting the voting process.
The most common problem that was discovered is that a number of persons who turned up at polling stations could not find their names on the list even though they voted at the same place in the 2011 elections. Those persons have gone in search of their names at other locations.
The most significant voter turnout is at Manchester village, Rose Hall Primary, Bohemia Primary, Cotton Tree Primary and No 5 village. The turnout at Whim and Port Mourant were not as expected.
Berbicians are calling for the elections to be done in a free and fair manner and that the result is accepted by all in order for the country to move forward. Polling Stations close at 18:00hrs.
