Double standards by Granger with Carter Center and International Republican Institute 

Dear Editor,
President Granger must be highly commended for taking the nation’s physical, mental and emotional health seriously.
What is confusing, however, is that President Granger does not see it fit to use the same COVID-19 argument applied to the Caricom observers and oil workers, to also permit representatives from The Carter Center and International Republican Institute to come to Guyana and complete their work; and also bring an early end to the election deadlock.
President Granger can show even greater concern for the people’s welfare by his full support for the recount period to be reduced to the minimum.
Better still, President Granger can agree just to have Region Four first-count completed from where Mr Mingo went astray. The recount has so far proven that the actual election outcome is nowhere else but in those Statements of Poll.
