[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former Speaker of the National Assembly and Former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Executive Member Ralph Ramkarran says the PPP/C should cease and desist from its shenanigans and concede defeat to its main challenger – APNU+AFC.
The results of the May 2015, General and Regional Election indicate a clear victory in favour of the APNU+AFC Coalition.
The data indicates that out of 410, 391 ballots cast, the PPP/C managed to acquire, 201,457 which is 5,360 votes short of the figure acquired by the APNU+AFC which is 206,817.
APNU+AFC attracted 201, 324 votes in the Regional polls, while the PPP/C got 198, 148 votes.
However despite these figures the PPP/C has maintained it “will not roll over” signalling its intention to challenge the results if declared.
However Ramkarran is not having any of it and insists that the Party and President Donald Ramotar do the “decent” thing.
“The PPP should behave with some dignity, concede, telephone David Granger and offer congratulations, and offer their cooperation for the development for the country,” he said in a recent Facebook post.
With the preliminary results of the 2015 General and Regional Election showing a victory in favour of the APNU+AFC coalition, The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is expected to declare the official results of the election today, May 15 – four days after elections.
This was confirmed by Chief Election Officer Keith Lowenfield who told reporters that should there be no more hiccups in the processing of the data the elections body would be ready to declare the results.
