Party in APNU+AFC Coalition calls for recount of election votes

Leader of the Justice For All Party C.N Sharma and his Wife, General Secretary of the Party Savitree Singh Sharma

Below is a statement from the Justice For All Party, one of the six-member parties which form the A Partnership for National Unity+ Alliance For Change Coalition. The APNU+AFC is claiming a win at March 02, 2020, General and Regional Elections which is tied up in the High Court even as both, the APNU+AFC Coalition and the Opposition’s Peoples Progressive party Civic are claiming to have won at the polls¬†

PRESS STATEMENT

Several years ago we, Mr Sharma, the Leader of the JFAP and myself Savitree Singh-Sharma, the General Secretary met Mr. Granger and have since held him in high regards. We believe he was and still is a man of integrity. It is on that basis we believe he asked the Chairperson of CARICOM, the Honourable, Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, to assemble a team to supervise the recounting of the ballots in accordance with the ruling of the Chief Justice of March 11, 2020. This we believe is a crucial step given all that has happened in the past several days.

The JFAP stands for democracy. Mr. Sharma has spent most of his life highlighting the Voice of The People. We believe in the will of the people -irrespective of which party wins. We believe that the recounting process should be permitted and ALL ballots should be immediately recounted in an expeditious and transparent manner.

Any party that wins through a transparent process will have our support. We are uncertain of the party dynamics at this time but we appeal to Mr. Granger to do the right thing and allow the recounting process to be immediately completed to honour the will of the people Of Guyana
