The Delegation of the European Union in Guyana in a statement today said that it continues to closely follow the developments after the no-confidence vote in the National Assembly on 21, December 2018.
The Delegation is calling on all concerned bodies and stakeholders to “uphold the Constitution, respecting democratic procedures and the rule of law. Procedures should be managed efficiently, with openness and transparency.”
The EU said it welcomes the expeditious handling of the related court cases so far and hopes that the further legal process can be expedited, “for the benefit of Guyana, its people and its development, in view of pending Foreign Direct Investments [FDI’s].”
The Delegation of the European Union looks forward to free and fair elections being held, as appropriate, and in line with all constitutional provisions.”
Last week, the Guyana Elections Commission held talks with representatives from the American, British, Canadian and EU missions in Guyana. That meeting focused on the preparation and process for the hosting of elections.
