St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): CARICOM Chairman Mia Mottley in a statement Wednesday described the events in Guyana as gamesmanship and said the CARICOM Election Observer Team was clear that the recounts of the March 2 general election pointed to a clear result and any evidence of improper conduct should be dealt with in court.

“It is more than 100 days since the people of Guyana went to the polls. And yet there is no declared result. From the very beginning we have been clear and said consistently that every vote must count and every vote must be made to count in a fair and transparent way,” she said.

“This is definitely NOT our finest hour and we must not shy away from that reality.”

Ms. Mottley said the regional integration movement was concerned that the Chief Elections Officer has submitted a report to the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) which is contrary to the directions given by the Commission and which does not reflect the results of the recount process as certified by the very the staff of the Guyana Elections Commission and witnessed by representatives of the political parties.
