A four-member team from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) arrived in Suriname on May 18.

“In response to the request from the Government of the Republic of Suriname, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has fielded a CARICOM Election Observation Mission to monitor the general elections which will be held on Monday, 25 May 2020,” a statement from the Caricom secretariat said.

The four-member mission will be headed by Ms Dora James, Supervisor of Elections of St Vincent and the Grenadines, who has served as a member of CARICOM Election Observation Missions to other CARICOM states.

“The CARICOM Election Observation Mission proposes to meet with the electoral officials, leaders of political parties and other stakeholders of Suriname, and will monitor the electoral process, including the opening of the poll, the voting process, the closing of the poll and the counting of the ballots.

“For CARICOM, election observation serves as a platform to support existing democratic traditions within the Caribbean Community as part of its wider policy of supporting democracy and good governance,” the statement said. (PR)
