The Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) recognises the blatant and naked attempts to undermine the will of our people as expressed through the March 2 National and Regional Elections. It is obviously clear that the lawful process has been abandoned and unverified data which lacks any basis or correlation with the source documents have suspiciously shown up.
The entire episode has cast doubt regarding the impartiality of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) and the senior officials of the Commission. The perpetuation of fraudulent polls, we contend, is not helpful to our nation and its people.
We join in calling on the GECOM to follow the established procedure as was pursued in the other nine administrative regions to comply with respect to Region Four. Results by any other process cannot be deemed acceptable.
