P.U.P. Requests Observers for General Elections

Prime Minister Dean Barrow formally announced the date for the upcoming general elections on Monday, sixteen months short of his five year term in office. The snap election is causing serious concerns in respect of the electoral lists.  The Opposition Leader, Francis Fonseca, in a letter to PM Barrow dated September twenty-eighth, notes that the decision to hold elections on November fourth comes on the heels of the completion of the annual transfer period.  Likewise, it precedes the beginning of the process for the yearly revision of electoral lists.  The election date, according to Fonseca, will not allow for the already distended electoral lists to be amended for 2015.  As a result, the P.U.P. is requesting the presence of Electoral Observers to witness the process come November fourth.  With that, Fonseca says that he anticipates the invitation of the Organization of American States, Commonwealth or CARICOM as independent monitors.
