The PPP which had a number of visa restrictions imposed on some of its officials during its time in government, today welcomed the announcement by the United States of visa restrictions targeting those who the US believes have been undermining democracy in Guyana.
The PPP today said the sanctions are justified in the circumstances and it accused the President of being in the background orchestrating all of the moves to the Court.
The PPP brushed aside the Government’s statement regretting the visa restrictions today saying that it is well aware of attempts by the APNU+AFC to undermine the electoral process in Guyana.
The PPP criticized a move to the Court by a private citizen questioning the GECOM Chair’s decision to set aside the declarations by the Returning Officers and instead use the numbers from the vote recount.
The PPP has been pressing for the votes from the recount to be used for a final declaration of the results of the elections.
Those undeclared tabulations from the recount put the PPP ahead of the APNU+AFC by just over 15,000 votes.
