The US Government wants the Guyana Elections Commission to move ahead and declare the results of the Guyana Elections based on the national vote recount, now that the CCJ has made a ruling.
In a tweet last evening, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Michael Kozak, said it was time for the declaration to be made.
He also added that the will of the voters cannot be ignored.
Earlier this week, the Diplomatic representatives of the US, the UK, Canada and the EU met with Guyana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. The election situation in Guyana was among the issues discussed during the meeting.
In a statement two weeks ago, the Diplomats said it is important that every vote, cast by every voter, be reflected in the final declaration, in order to ensure that the will of the people of Guyana is respected.
They said that respect includes an election declaration of results that mirrors the order and integrity displayed by the people of Guyana, GECOM and party officials, as witnessed by the observers on elections day.
