The headquarters for the election recount is the Arthur Chung Conference Center in Georgetown, the capital city. On the first day, police guarded the entrance to this center and the press was not allowed inside.
The team of observers, which will ensure the transparency of the recount, includes representatives from the Private Sector Commission, the Organization of American States (OAS), the U.S.-Guyana Chamber of Commerce, and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
"There will be no interruptions on this occasion. The police and observers will ensure the clarity of the process," Gecom spokeswoman Yolanda Ward said.
