Conclusions and Recommendations

The 28 November 2011 elections in Guyana built on the 2006 elections and, despite some shortcomings, represented further progress for the country in strengthening its democratic processes. Overall, the elections were credible and many of the benchmarks for democratic elections were met, even though some concerns, notably in terms of aspects of the campaign and the management of the tabulation process, remain to be addressed for the future.
