The Guyana Association of Bankers Inc. (GABI) has announced a half-day bank holiday on March 2, the date of the upcoming elections in Guyana, while the Guyana Private Sector Commission recently issued a statement calling on the Government of Guyana to declare Monday, March 2, 2020, a national public holiday in Guyana.
Recall that, last week (2020-02-20), Guyana's Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan, had stated that he was contemplating the declaration of Monday, March 2, 2020, as a one-off public holiday in Guyana, on account of that day's elections ("I’m considering that (the calls) because I noticed that in 2011 and 2015, I noticed Clement Rohee making it a public holiday. I want to hear the arguments").
