In a statement released to the media, Leader of the National Independence Party (NIP), Saphier Husain Subedar has
predicted that President Donald Ramotar will set a date for the 2015 General and Regional Elections between March 15 and 30.
The statement comes after Subedar met with members of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) this past Wednesday at their Kingston Office on High Street, Georgetown, to formally register to contest in the upcoming elections.
Husain’s prediction prefaces that the President will dissolve Parliament in the early part of January 2015, in preparation for the impending General Elections. The Attorney-at-Law stated that this would be in accordance with Article 61 of the Constitution which stipulates that elections must be held within 90 days of dissolution.
As such the NIP leader is preparing to enter the 2015 electoral race, as the party’s application has been accepted by GECOM’s Chairman, Dr. Steve Surujbally.
In the media statement the leader of the party, also indicated to the GECOM Chairman that his party’s symbol will officially be a “tiger”, and they have begun campaigning.
