Home Letters Drowning cabal clutching at straws need to stop now!
Confusion and rumourmongering have become the order of the day, following the results of votes tallied at the ongoing recount, for political parties that participated in the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections. APNU/AFC’s switch from the mantra that they won to sustained attacks on the credibility of the elections highlights the real indecency of David Granger and his crew.
The revelations from ballot boxes recounted over the past eleven days have confirmed the authenticity of the Statements of Poll the PPP/C and other parties signed and received after the counting process on March 2, 2020. More importantly, it continues to expose the vulgar plot of election fraud orchestrated by the condemned agents of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), in tandem with the Granger-led APNU/AFC cabal.
Leading their inexplicable conflict-driven, partisan and conveniently delaying strategy at GECOM is Vincent Alexander whose sand dancing must now be halted. Alexander’s inconsistency since the passing of the No-Confidence Motion in the National Assembly on December 21, 2019, has defined him as a stranger of rationality and revealed the truth of who has set out to prove that the law is an ass.
It is pellucid that Vincent Alexander has failed, battle with the lists, ID cards, and House-to-House Registration are among many other shenanigans designed to frustrate the constitutional functionality of GECOM, and serve the sole interests of the PNC and APNU/AFC. After the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections, he has continued the whimsical idiotic displays which have long now eroded a sense of rationality, making him a laughing stock internationally and at GECOM.
By the accommodation of his shenanigans for too long, Chairwoman Mrs Claudette Singh has now put herself in a position where she must definitively divorce from the skullduggery or face the impending penalties. As Mr Bruce Golding, the lead person of the Organisation of American States (OAS) observer mission aptly articulated, he has “never seen a more transparent war to change the results of an election, albeit, the existence of such definitive paper trail of evidence.”
It is widely known that GECOM was able to conduct a free and fair election process in facilitating the will of the voting public on March 2, 2020. All present, observer groups attested to this and contesting parties including the APNU/AFC. However, the PNC cabals set in motion a plot to blatantly disrupt the tabulation and count in Region No Four after they found that they lost the elections by ‘four’ seats.
What took place halfway through the process of Region No Four’s tabulation attracted the attention and ire of the world. The most blatant cheating unfolded after the geriatric Returning Officer (RO), Clairmont Mingo feigned sickness and allowed the rigging cabal of the PNC to produce a fake spreadsheet to purportedly represent a tally of the votes accounted for by the Region No Four Statements of Poll. The flagrant abuse of power and falsifications obviously resulted in massive confusion as they tried to replace the legitimate Statements of Poll.
It was quite disappointing that GECOM Chairwoman did not demand a resolution of the matter by enforcing the production of the original Statements of Poll, lending to wide suspicions of a cover-up. It necessitated court actions and instructive decisions of the Chief Justice and the Court of Appeal to direct actions that could have simply completed with assertive actions at the level of the Commission. The Chairwoman of GECOM must ease the pressure from Guyanese by realising the official Statements of Poll.
Other columnists have argued in previous editions that there is no need for GECOM Chairwoman to depend on the approval of the National COVID-19 Task Force, to move ahead with setting up the appropriate number of counting stations that would speed up the recount. Of course, GECOM has the constitutional authority to address this matter with alacrity and prudent judgment, given that the greatest threat to the nation has emerged from the absence of a legitimate Government. As the recount slowly moves on, it is proving that the Statements of Recount are corresponding with the original SoPs.
It confirms that the SoPs in the possession of the PPP/C are true and correct and that GECOM must use these Statements of Recount as the basis to swear Dr Irfaan Ali as President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana. If there is any shred of decency in Mr Granger, then at some point he should save face by conceding since he is aware of the true results.
The drowning APNU/AFC cabal must stop the sand dancing and clutching at straws, since Guyana desperately needs a stable political environment and a legal Government.
