[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) says it supports the action of residents from Regions 2, 5 and 6 who on Wednesday staged peaceful picketing exercises at the respective regional GECOM offices.
A press release from the PPP noted that protesters bore placards calling for the resignation of GECOM’s Chairman Dr. Steve Surujbally and the demand for the Party’s legal request for a final general count.
“Residents are frustrated and feel cheated of their democratic rights. Hence, the Party calls on GECOM to act responsible in this very fragile moment in our country’s history,” the PPP noted.
The Party continues to maintain that it was cheated at the just concluded general and regional elections and demands that GECOM grants its request for a recount.
The PPP also intends to file an elections petition.
