-after failing to deliver, seeking `clarifications’ on chair’s instructions
Embattled Chief Election Officer (CEO) Keith Lowenfield has been given up to 11 am today July 11th 2020 by Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chair Claudette Singh to produce a final report of the March 2nd general elections using the results of the national recount of votes.
Her edict via a letter to him came after he failed to deliver that report yesterday at 2 pm as instructed by Singh on Thursday. Singh had scheduled a 1 pm meeting of Commissioners yesterday on the way forward following Wednesday’s Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) ruling on an elections case. At 2 pm, Lowenfield submitted a letter to Singh in which he sought various clarifications about claimed anomalies in her letter.
After deliberations yesterday, Singh crafted a letter to Lowenfield standing by her original instructions of July 9th but by this time Lowenfield had left the compound after stating that he had received a death threat notwithstanding the security detail on site at GECOM’s headquarters.
