The Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) could soon commence looking for a new Chief Elections Officer if the Commission at its Statutory meeting set for today fails to renew the contract of the current substantive Chief Registrations Officer,NFL Jerseys Wholesale
, Mr Gocool Boodoo.This publication was reliably informed that at the Commission’s previous statutory meeting of March 12, 2013, Boodoo had made a request for his contract to be renewed. That request has since been under consideration and a decision is likely to be made today.However there are reports that suggestions have been made to have the Deputy Chief Elections Officer (DCEO),Manchester City Store UK
, Mr Calvin Benn,Cheap NFL Jerseys China
, assume the position of CEO in the interim. An attempt to solicit a comment on the state of affairs from Benn yesterday was only met with remarks of “I do not know what decisions were arrived at…I do not attend statutory meetings.”There have even been reports of indiscretion within the entity among a named senior official which could affect the decision of the Commission which is headed by Chairman,Cheap Baseball Jerseys Authentic
, Dr Steve Surujbally. He was unavailable for comment yesterday.There are six commissioners among them Attorney-at-law Sandra Jones, who filled the void that was left when opposition-member Robert Williams passed away, Mr Vincent Alexander and Mr Charles Corbin who also represent the parliamentary opposition.? Attorney-at-law Jaya Manickchand,China NFL Jerseys
, Dr Bud Mangal and Mr Mahmood Shaw are representing the ruling party in the Commission.There are reports that the Chairman is in favour of having the CEO position advertised in the Caribbean, a suggestion that was reportedly dashed by the Commissioners representing the parliamentary opposition.In fact this publication was reliably informed that based on deliberations at the previous meeting not all were receptive of suggestions that were made which reportedly included having the Assistant Deputy Chief Elections Commissioner, Mr Keith Lowenfield,China Jerseys Wholesale
, being elevated to the position of DCEO.Another suggestion this publication was informed was a proposal reportedly from the Chairman himself to defy electoral management by recommending that the entity’s Public Relations Officer act in the DCEO capacity.? This publication was however not able to have the Chairman corroborate this information yesterday.
