The People’s National Convention (PNC) has given indications it will stay vigilant in the processes leading to the special voting exercise on Thursday.
The party said it was concerned over the inclusion of names of police recruits to the list of special voters on December 1.
But following an IPAC meeting with the Electoral Commission (EC) last Friday, it had reached an agreement on the matter but emphasized that they will remain vigilant to forestall any compromises of the voters’ list.
The General Secretaryy of the PNC, told Citi News, “The fact that we accepted the additions, does not mean that we should fold our arms and expect anybody and any name to appear on the day of voting and come and vote in the claim that he or she is one of those who were added at a latter time. We need to have a full complement of the list then we can monitor closely and be vigilant as expected by law to be.”
“In as much as we expressed some optimal satisfaction about the voters’ list, we think that we need to have it in our possession so that our vigilance can be complete and we can do a thorough job on the day.”
He said the party would follow up with the Commission to get the full list of registered voters.
He told Citi News, the PNC would deploy as many polling agents as possible to serve in the various polling stations across the country.
