H2H is a virtual sham and should be dumped

first_imgDear Editor,The long-awaited decision presented on August 27 by GECOM Chairman, Justice Claudette Singh, is fraught with a myriad of problems. Christopher Ram, in his letter, “Justice Singh is probably unaware of complexity and difficulties of merging two lists”, lists some legitimate reasons about the merging of the lists. The credibility of the latest dubious registration process is particularly worrisome since this exercise was conducted under questionable circumstances. One blogger, Tarron Khemraj, pointed out, “the merging of the list could see the backdoor removal of thousands of names, disproportionately.”It is puzzling that the Chairman has allowed the continuation of the House-to-House (H2H) Registration until August 31. A whole lot of manipulation and forgery could materialise within the 4-5 days – especially considering that the registration process from its inception has been suspect.The Guyanese people must come together and fight tooth and nail against this latest faux pas by GECOM, and resist the merging of the two lists. Utilising this faulty list defeats the purpose of seeking a fair and free election. House-to-House is a virtual sham and should be dumped.Yours truly,Dr DevanandBhagwanlast_img read more
