APNU wants verification of Statements of Poll

Stabroek News – December 1, 2011 @ 12:08 pm

Opposition coalition, APNU this morning called for all the parties to sit together and verify the Statements of Polls, particularly for Region Four, after saying that it has evidence of manipulation of results.

“We have sufficient evidence of manipulation and we alone don’t feel so,” said APNU’s Prime Ministerial candidate, Rupert Roopnaraine at a press conference at Congress Place this morning. He called for the parties to sit down and reconcile the SOPs together. Roopnaraine alleged that at least 105 SOPs have vanished from South Georgetown.  

Final results cannot be declared unless the ten returning officers from the different regions make their regional declarations and Roopnaraine said that he believes that the declaration from Region Four may be in “jeopardy” at this point.

APNU’s Elections agent Joseph Harmon has written to Chief Election Officer, Gocool Boodoo on the issue. Roopnaraine said that there are other regions that have been affected but their main concern is Region Four. He urged supporters to remain calm.

    If there are so many discrepancies then the only way to solve this is to do the election over, but this time, a representative from EVERY PARTY must be present inside each polling station, standing by the boxes both during the voting process and when the counting commences until it ends and the boxes are sealed. This means that the boxes cannot leave their sight for a split second. I’m not surprised at all that this has occurred and I hope that an honest resolution is made in this regard and that calm and level heads prevail.
