PRESS RELEASE People's National Congress Reform Congress Place, Sophia, Georgetown, Guyana. August 31, 2006




The People’s National Congress Reform – One Guyana (PNCR-1G), having completed its evaluation of the Statements of Poll submitted by its polling agents, is now in a position to state that its results closely approximate those announced so far by GECOM.

The PNCR-1G will shortly publish its evaluation of the electoral process and the conduct of the polls on Election Day. Among the areas that will be addressed are:

 The lack of a level playing field for political parties including misuse of the state media, even on Election Day, to promote the interest of the governing Party;
 he failure to verify the voters’ list and its implications for the elections;
 Undue difficulties faced by electors for both registration and voting;
 Inefficiencies in the functioning of the Elections Commission.

While being disappointed with the voter turnout the PNCR-1G congratulates the people of Guyana, who by their exemplary conduct on Elections Day, defied the prophets of doom.

Now that the elections are over the PNCR-1G wishes to assure its supporters that while the results are not what we had hoped for, the Party will resolutely promote and defend their interests. Equally, the Party will be pursuing a number of initiatives to enhance their economic well-being as we seek to move Guyana forward with the ONE GUYANA platform.
