APNU concerned about Registration exercise in interior Regions
A Partnership for National Unity said it is investigating reports that the staff members of the General Registrar’s Office are conducting late registration in selected Amerindian Communities in Regions 1, 7, 8 and 9.
Capitol News was informed that registration is currently ongoing in five Region 1 communities: Canal Bank Port Kaituma, Sebi, Falls Top, 4 miles and Oronoque. The five communities are said to have community support officers attached to the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs Ministry. No registration has been planned for Fitzburg Kaituma, Matthews Ridge and Arakata
Chief Scrutineer of APNU Amna Ally said the Partnership does not subscribe the General Registrar’s office going into the community as it is not supposed to happen.
The Guyana Elections Commission will begin its seventh cycle of continuous registration on December 1 and persons who have not been registered should use the opportunity to do so with all protocols observed.
Ally said she believes that this is an attempt by the ruling People’s Progressive Party to rig the election.
Head of the General Registrar’s Office Greta McDonald said she is not authorize to speak on the matter, when reached for a comment.
