The position I hold at the time in 2011, I still hold today – Gocool Boodoo should have been investigated by a parliamentary committee when he calculated the election results wrongly in 2011 that gave the PPP a majority.
The world knows what happened after. Vincent Alexander corrected Gocool’s inaccurate tabulation. The PPP lost its majority in 2011 effectively, bringing sixty years of PPP’s invincibility to an end
In 2015, Keith Lowenfield, the Chief Elections Officer, did what Vincent Alexander had done in 2001. The story of Lowenfield’s courage relates to the fake statements of poll (SOP). How did they get into GECOM’s offices? My theory is that they were introduced by the PPP through people that were well placed at GECOM. Please read between the lines to see which direction I am pointing to.
In Guyana in 2015, with modern technology, taking five days to announce the results of an election in which there were only 410, 000 votes is pathetic, sick, immoral nonsense. What makes it sicker is that no polling station had more than 400 ballots. Literally hours then, the counting would be finished all over Guyana. In each station, all they have to do is count four hundred votes.
So the 2300 polling stations would have completed their job in literally two hours after the close of balloting. By use of phone and other communication devices the PPP would have known the count late Monday night. Because the PPP was the government and because of the enormous resources it threw into the campaign, I believe its communication with its polling agents deep in the interior of Guyana was more effective. It meant then that the PPP knew late Monday night it had lost by a thin slice.
What it did then was to set about to derail the election results because it knew recounting could not give it five thousand votes to make it win. This is where the SOP came in. The bogus (SOP) was plan B if previous attempts at abortion did not succeed. When Plan A collapsed the PPP moved to plan B.
The intention was to get someone in authority in GECOM, probably one of their own (if you know what mean) to cry foul. But the Chief Election Officer stopped that wickedness by alerting GECOM to his discovery – the bogus SOP. By then it was over for the PPP. You see the fake SOP conspiracy had a strategic weakness from the inception – it was not part of GECOM’s 2015 election day balloting. In other words, it was irrelevant.
What the fake SOP imbroglio tells us is that there is an immense, immeasurable danger with having party members of the contesting organizations in a national election administering the election. The PPP has three. The opposition has three. You then have politicians running around in all the sensitive areas of GECOM. That is a recipe for Draculean evil. Such a monstrous anomaly should be extirpated immediately. One hopes that 2015 was the last national election administered by party members whose leaders are contesting the poll. Not only is it monstrous. It is awfully stupid.
