By BBN Staff: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has issued a statement calling on the electoral officials in Guyana and the representative political parties to work together to achieve a peaceful and lawful completion of the electoral process in Guyana by ensuring the tabulation of the results in all regions using the statement of polls in a transparent manner in the presence of the representatives of the political parties and the electoral observers.
“We are very clear, every vote must be made to count, and transparently so. We have noted that all sides have been making serious allegations against each other. It is critical that good sense prevails. The preservation of law and order is paramount and All parties must work hard to ensure that there is peace on the roads and in the communities across Guyana. There has already been one death reported overnight. That is one death too many,” CARICOM noted.
Caricom says that the parties must recognize that the primary consideration must not only be who will be President but, more so, who will be alive come next week or next month, for there cannot be a tolerance for any further loss of life.
CARICOM noted that it stands ready to be able to be there to facilitate further dialogue and any actions that are necessary.
“We have done this on many occasions in the past, including in Guyana, when elections have been highly contentious and when social order and the rule of law has been threatened across the region,” the statement expressed.
