The OAS official, who traveled to Guyana to meet with all stakeholders ahead of the November 28 elections, said: “This is an important achievement. The leaders and candidates have recognized their duty to act responsibly during the political campaign. I also believe it is their responsibility to go further and call on their supporters as well, to participate in an orderly, respectful and peaceful manner.”
During his brief visit to Guyana, Ramdin met with all three presidential candidates, officials of Guyana’s electoral commission, members of the diplomatic corps, local election observers and Guyana’s current president, Bharrat Jagdeo.
He also met with CARICOM Secretary General Irwin LaRocque and Sir Shridath Ramphal on other Caribbean issues and hemispheric developments.
The OAS will deploy an electoral observation mission (EOM) to Guyana for the November 28 poll.
