The Private Sector Commission is once again urging President David Granger to allow the return of the Carter Center to join in the observing of the ongoing national vote recount.
In a statement, the PSC said the President should accept the presence of the Carter Center along with all of the other International Observer Missions since their presence would enhance and reinforce the work of the CARICOM team.
The Carter Center has been trying to send representatives back to Guyana to join the vote recount, but the President has said with the COVID-19 national health emergency measures in place, the airports will remain closed.
The Government has given approval for a number of Guyanese nationals to return home but that return date has not been finalised.
The US Embassy has also been pushing for a return of The Carter Center, with the US Ambassador to Guyana stating recently that there may be a need for additional observing eyes for the process.
The Government has not been budging from its position and the Guyana Elections Commission has made it clear that when it comes to international observers, that issue falls under the remit of the Executive.
The vote recount is being scrutinized by a high-level CARICOM team. The OAS, the EU, the ABC Diplomats and a number of local organisations are observing the process.
