Bishop Francis Alleyne OSB says he is relieved and hopeful after recent events finally brought an end to months of legal battles and one of the most controversial elections disputes in Guyanese history.
According to a Catholic Standard news report, the bishop was asked by Catholic Media how he felt. He responded, “Relief was the first word that came to mind at the end of the five-month period that began with elections and closed with declaration. My sense was that the sentiment of relief was universal. The people of Guyana are to be highly commended for dutifully going to the polls at the beginning of the process and showing great patience through the entire time”.
