[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is scheduled to release preliminary results of the May 11 2015 General and Regional Elections at 11:00hrs today.
This is although polling closed at 18:00 hrs on May 11 – more than 15 hours ago.
GECOM says it is currently in the process of the unhindered receipt of Statements of Polls from the 2,299 Polling Stations across Guyana.
The elections body was slated to announce preliminary results since 23:00hrs on May 11; however reports indicate that the delay has to do with the fact that its agents were unable to access the ballot boxes and Statement of polls at some polling stations.
The Statement of Poll will indicate which political Party has managed to attract the most votes at the polls. The Statements are usually posted after polls would have closed.
Stakeholders have urged that the electorate remain calm and allow GECOM to finalize the results of the elections.
