Granger rewards Sandra V Jones with GECOM seat

Liveinguyana was reliably informed that the APNU is expected to name Sandra V Jones to fill the seat on the Guyana Election Commission(GECOM) vacated following the death of Robert Williams. This move has not found favour with certain sections of the PNC's APNU as well as the AFC whose nominee was rejected. Persons are of the view that Jones is being rewarded for the role her company played in electing David Granger as the PNC's presidential candidate during the controversial internal party elections. According to PNC insiders Jones' company was retained to help ensure 'transparency of the process', and it was an employee of hers, the Returning Officer. Mr. Earl John who declared the contested results.

Others have said that her appointment to the commission will create a conflict of interest given that in March 2003, GECOM, reported that her company, S.V. Jones Associates, was recruited to conduct a job evaluation and description exercise.
