In its ruling, the CCJ has nullified a recent report submitted by Guyana’s Chief Elections Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield in which he had dumped over 115,000 votes cast in the March 2nd polls.
The CCJ has also ruled that Lowenfield should produce a report directed by Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) chairperson, Justice Claudette Singh.
Justice Singh had written to Lowenfield directing him to prepare a final report based on the results of the national recount, which lasted more than 30 days.
The chief elections officer was required to tabulate the 10 statements of recount certificates to fulfil a constitutional obligation.
In delivering the judgment, CCJ President Adrian Saunders said “it was for GECOM to ensure that the CEO submits a report in accordance with its directive June 16 in order to proceed along the path directed by the laws of Guyana”.
