The embattled chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), retired justice James Patterson demitted office on Tuesday, one week after the Trinidad based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) said his appointed was flawed and not in keeping with the provisions of the constitution.

Patterson met with President David Granger who thanked him for his service over the past 20 years, according to an official statement issued by the Department of Public Information (DPI).

It said that Patterson had submitted his on Monday “thereby rendering that post vacant”. Patterson was appointed to the post in October 2017.
