GECOM Chairman tells President General Elections possible in November 2019

PPP elections commissioners say there’s no law, policy for house-to-house registration

The Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), James Patterson, has informed President David Granger that general elections should be possible in November 2019 after house-to-house registration, but the opposition People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP) elections commissioners said such a process is not grounded in law or policy.
