[www.inewsguyana.com] – The United States Embassy says it is in receipt of the recent allegations made by the Peoples Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) that there were many fake Statements of Poll (SOPs) at the May 11 elections and has since looked into the claims.

The Embassy in a release noted that nothing contained therein changes its baseline assessment of the electoral process and maintains that the elections were free, fair & credible.

“Based on our observations of the polling, counting, and tabulation process and the conclusions reached by other international observer missions, we continue to assess that the election process was free and fair. We remain confident in the Guyana Elections Commission’s ability to deliver credible results that accurately reflect the way votes were cast by the Guyanese people on May 11,” the release noted.

The US Embassy is urging GECOM to continue with its important tabulation work and to provide verified results at the earliest possible opportunity.

“The United States Embassy understands the Guyanese people’s desire to see the final results of these elections. It is important, however, to provide the Guyana Elections Commission the time and space to conclude its work‎. We urge the people of Guyana to continue to exercise patience.”

The United States Embassy calls upon all political leaders to adhere to the Political Party ‎Code of Conduct, which specifically proscribes public criticism of the Guyana Elections Commission or interference with its work.

“We expect all parties to respect the final results of these elections,” the statement noted.

  2. There is no solution for the bringing back of the dead. Except you are GOD !, The only thing there is to do is evaluate is the cause of death.. so check what caused the P.P.P/C government to die in this peaceful elections .From the major findings it was failure to unite Guyanese people who have been longing to overcome the disease of racism and communism .During Campaigns for Elections we lived like enemies separated by a common border called race .After elections we eat drink and danced altogether.so pray and give your kids a better life to socialize and make Guyana a better place for our people.

  3. “jistinwil” Ya wish. Nat gonna happen. PPP lose. The days of the tyrannical Jagdeo are over. The days of pompousness, corruption and sordid orgies are over.

    Sellout Woman and Soup-er-man- y’all jump pun the wrong ship.
    Odinga, Kwamie, Rima Clap-Roti- y’all gat fuh get jobs now. No more free-loading.
    Olive Gopaul and Peter Ramsoroop- no soup for y’all.

  4. For too long the PPP had the Guyanese people living in bondage. It is time for the Pharohs to let Gods people go. I say no more to racism no more to poverty no more to hatred, set Gods people free in the mighty name of Jesus

  5. Because the PPP/C cannot accept defeat, they are going to continue to put the rest of the nation through a long period of anxiety. SELFISH!

  6. Dismiss but not over rule! The GECOM has already confirmed that they have also seen the fake sops. As a result of the closeness of this election and the fake sops there is enough evidence to delay the announcing of the winner of these elections until GECOM concludes their investigation. Be prepared for a long wait and also new elections!!
