[www.inewsguyana.com] – With five days remaining before Guyanese head to the polls, the ruling People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) is urging the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) to put all necessary mechanisms in place to guard against multiple voting, the unauthorised use of proxy voting, storming of polling stations, stuffing of ballot boxes and other fraudulent practices on voting day.
A statement from the Party on Tuesday, May 05 noted “It is clear that as elections day draws nearer and nearer and the prospects of another PPP/C victory looms larger and larger in the elections horizon desperation seems to get the better of the APNU+AFC.”
Additionally, the PPP is also urging its members, supporters and friends to remain calm and composed despite acts of provocation unleashed against them.
“The PPP is strongly of the view that Granger and his APNU+AFC outfit is staging a psychological warfare aimed at driving fear into the electorate and create a false sense of political dominance especially in light of an impending electoral defeat in the May 11 polls.”
The PPP calls on the Guyanese electorate to be “strong and focused and not to allow themselves to be intimidated by acts of political terrorism.”
