The Port of Spain based Caribbean Court of Justice has invalidated the Guyana Court of Appeal’s ruling that Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield must only use votes determined as valid to declare a winner of the country’s disputed election.
Mr Lowenfield discarded over one hundred thousand votes received by the People’s Progressive Party/Civic on March 2nd.
CCJ President Adrian Saunders handed down the ruling on Wednesday afternoon.
The court ruled it had jurisdiction to hear an appeal brought by People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Presidential candidate Dr Irfaan Ali and General Secretary Bharrat Jagdeo and granted them special leave to contest the COA ruling.
Speaking with the media Guyana’s incumbent leader, David Granger addressing supporters in the Capital, Georgetown, commented on the development.
Meanwhile, Guyana Opposition Leader , Bharat Jagdeo, posted a response on his Facebook Page.
