APNU+AFC trying to mobilise crowd for petition presentation despite COVID-19 restrictions

The APNU+AFC coalition appears to be organizing another mass gathering in contravention of the ongoing protocols to mitigate the spread of the COVID19 disease.

A Facebook message purporting to be from coalition campaign manager Joseph Harmon announced this morning that the promised elections petition will be filed on Monday August 31 at the Supreme Court.

It goes on to encourage party supporters to “mobilize in numbers” outside the Court.

“We want a big manifestation against this persecution that is going on,” the message concludes.

Stabroek News attempted to reach Harmon for comment on the issue but calls to his phone went unanswered. The page which shared the message, Comrade Joseph Harmon – PNCR, describes itself as a fan page of the coalition and has been used in the past to share messages on his behalf.

Despite the country prohibition on public gathering of more than 10 persons the coalition continues to encourage its supports to gather in large numbers.

Most recently a similar gathering was observed outside the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court when PNCR Chairperson Volda Lawrence was charged with electoral fraud.

Similar crowds daily gathered outside of state house and the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) over the five months it took to declare the results of the March 2 polls.
