GECOM Chairperson distances herself from a purported plan to distort the process for the declaration of election results

Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission, retired Justice Claudette Singh, issued a statement today, denying what is said to have been discussions in which she was involved, concerning plans to improperly influence the outcome of the declaration results, from the March 2nd elections.

She said it was brought to her attention that there is in circulation a purported recorded conversation between herself and GECOM’s Information Technology Manager, Aneal Giddings of a plan to manipulate systems to ensure a certain party is declared the winner of the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections.

In this regard, I wish to emphatically state that I do not have knowledge of any such conversation nor am I involved in any plot to ensure any particular party is declared the winner of the 2020 elections, she said.

There has been a transparent process to count the votes and the legal process has taken its course. There is absolutely no need for manipulation, the statement added.

The circulation of such recording and peddling of those allegations are designed to create mischief in an already tensed and charged political environment, it said further.

Justice Singh called on those responsible for what she termed unlawful actions, to immediately desist from doing so, to ensure an environment of trust, peace and stability.
