The Electoral Assistance Bureau (EAB) says it has launched a programme to monitor Guyana’s general and regional elections due later this year.
A release from the EAB’s Council of Management on Friday stated that they would be testing the voters’ list and providing hotline and open house services to individuals wishing to check their names on the list or report any irregularities.
Additionally, the NGO will be conducting public awareness, training and placing observers at all polling stations to observe the polling process, and monitoring the count and award of seats to the National Assembly.
“In addition, the EAB would conduct any post-election audits if necessary and a final review. The EAB has already written to GECOM requesting accreditation as a local observer body,” the release stated.
The EAB has already held a review session with election observation coordinators from Administrative Regions to examine lessons learnt during the previous election observation exercise and plan for the upcoming programme of work.
