- following protest actions outside homes of GECOM Chairman and Chief Elections Officer
THE People's Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) last night condemned the "intimidatory behaviour/ tactics" by members and supporters of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) for taking their protest action to the homes of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission Dr. Steve Surujbally and Chief Elections Officer Mr. Gocool Boodoo. "The PPP/C believes while APNU has a right to protest their brazen and daring act of provocation and lack of civility and respect cannot be excused," the party said in a statement.
"Such intrusion on the privacy of the elections officials and their families is definitely crossing the boundary and therefore deserves the condemnation of all decent and law-abiding Guyanese," the party added. The PPP/C called on the leadership of APNU to publicly denounce this level of behaviour that goes against the norms of civil, peaceful and decent protest. The PPP/C's condemnation came in the wake of a standoff between a group of APNU protesters and police last night outside the Lamaha Gardens residence of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission. According to a report on 'Demerara Waves', Police insisted that they remove from the area. "You all please leave this area, it is illegal". "Go to your respective homes," they pleaded. But one of the organisers maintained that they have a legitimate right to peaceful and quiet protest unless there is a state of emergency. Another group of protesters was outside the Dennis Street, Campbelville home of Chief Election Officer, Gocool Boodoo. They later dispersed. According to the 'Demerara Waves report', they were chanting and singing hymns while holding candles in their hands.
