[www.inewsguyana.com] – The British High Commission has joined the United States Embassy in dismissing the allegations made by the People’s Progressive Party (PPP/C) that there were major irregularities at the May 11 polls and maintains that the election process was free, fair and credible.
According to a statement issued by British High Commissioner to Guyana, Gregory Quinn, its observer mission investigated several complaints which were highlighted on Election Day but found nothing “that we believe would materially affect any result.”
“We note the allegations made by the PPP/C but have found no evidence to support them. Nor have we been given any. We remain confident in GECOM’s ability to deliver an accurate result and urge them to produce a final tally as soon as possible.”
The British High Commission urges all to continue to exercise patience, support the work of GECOM, and respect its final result. It also reminded the political parties of the commitments they made in signing the Code of Conduct and encourage them to abide by its provisions.
