The Guyana Elections Commission is set to meet this morning and the #1 issue on the agenda is expected to be the submitted report of the Chief Election Officer, which has come in for widespread criticism from several quarters.
The Chief Election Officer submitted his final report on the election on Saturday, one day after he sought guidance from the Chairman of the Commission on several issues and got none.
The report submitted by Lowenfield on Saturday shows the incumbent APNU+AFC with the majority of votes, but the PPP and a number of the small parties have dismissed the report and are calling for the firing of the Chief Election Officer.
Lowenfield’s latest report showed the valid votes cast as 475,118.
Of that figure, the APNU+AFC won 236,777 votes while the PPP won 229,330 and the three joiner parties gaining 5090 votes.
By his calculations, the APNU+AFC will be allocated 33 seats, the PPP will get 31 seats and the joiner list will get 1 seat.
The numbers in Lowenfield’s latest report differ from the total undeclared numbers from the recount.
