Thank you for your reporting and commentaries. I note the President is silent on the public position of his party on the elections; contradicts his position of three weeks ago that he would accept the result of the recount. He said he speaks for the government. Then he must stop those who are issuing ultimatums and threats and engaging in illegal acts.
Regrettably, APNU-led coalition has not been consistent on its position on the elections. It has held changing positions just before the elections till now – from claiming victory to election not credible.
Before the election, the party said its opinion polls said it would win even though other opinion surveys showed it trailing.
On Election day, March 2, the President and other spokespersons for APNU as well as AFC came out and said all went well with election day procedures. It was perfect. They predicted victory right after close of polls.
The day after election, they claimed victory but realized in the evening they lost. On March 4, the count was ‘mingoed’ as he was instructed to create a victory; it was rejected by the court. Joe Harmon said Granger would swear in by that weekend. The court voided the ‘mingoed’ count on March 8 and instructed Mingo to do a proper transparent count in the presence of observers. Mingo defied the court and on March 13 ‘mingoed’ the count again and declared victory for APNU.
Meanwhile five Caricom PMs arrived in Guyana to find a solution and urged both government and opposition to accept court ruling for a proper count. The PMs were ignored. The international community threatened sanctions if Granger swears in on the fraudulent count.
Granger called Mia Mottley seeking her help to do a recount to legitimize the result. The President signed an agreement to honour the recount. The President’s party went to court to challenge the recount. The court ruled in favour of the recount.
APNU asserts that the recount would show gains for the party. Recount shows APNU losing and confirms original count of SOPs in possession of all opposition parties and international observers.
APNU makes allegations of improprieties about election day procedures and voters’ list. Harmon threatens GECOM with ultimatum. Volda says elections not credible.
How come the coalition won on March 4 but elections not credible now?
Meanwhile, gangs were called to a meeting. Is mayhem planned?
Mr. President, please don’t endorse these actions! You are taking us down the wrong road! You did not support the fraud and stained your name till now. Why compromise integrity now? I saluted your leadership for five years as President and three and a half as Opposition Leader. I voted for you. Unlike some others in the party, you are not power hungry. You never threatened GECOM or issue ultimatums. Please stop the planned threats and actions of your colleagues.
Mr. President, our party is losing credibility over its shifting positions. Even supporters are questioning why the party’s and your position keeps changing. Come out once and for all and put a stop to the games being played by some power grabbers in our party.
