Opposition calls for 'transparency rules' during elections
Authorities in most of the opposition political parties running in the October presidential elections released a document on Thursday in which the urge the Electoral Chamber to apply “sixteen new measures that will guarantee transparency.”
The statement, which was delivered to the Chamber, was released during a press conference held on the José Luis Cabezas room of the Lower House, where most opposition leaders were present.
Juan Tunessi, Ricardo Gil Lavedra, Ernesto Sanz and Gustavo Lema attended on behalf of the Radical party, Carlos López Iglesias on behalf of the ARI, Gustavo Ferrari for the Celeste y Blanca Union and Pablo Tonelli for the PRO.
Some of the measures in the stament demand:
To replace all polling station authorities whose voting booths have been involved in irregularities or who have a political affiliation.
To ban on computer experts from intervening in the recounts at the data entry centres.
To report on the exact amount of polling stations that will include judicial delegates.
To report on the identity of polling station authorities and the license plate number of those vehicles involved in the voting process.
