Chairman of the Alliance For Change (AFC), Raphael Trotman said the Chief Elections Officer could not be fired for seeking advice or guidance from the GECOM Chairman but getting none. He said if Mr. Lowenfield is dismissed, that would worsen Guyana’s now more than four-month old political crisis that has stemmed from a controversy over the election results.
“That is going to lead to graver difficulties if at this point in time a move is made to dismiss him
Mr. Trotman and Mr. Nandlall differed over whether a new Chief Elections Officer
could certify election results about which he has no knowledge ~
“What nonsense is that ?
Lowenfield doesn’t have any personal peculiar knowledge.
Everything is on paper.
All the documents have to be read and tabulated. That is the kind of disgraceful argument coming from a lawyer.
He should be ashamed of himself,”
