Is this just another case of bad polls, or is something else happening?
Fraud allegations charges revolve around the company Indra awarded a contract to count the vote.
The company claims to speed up the counting process via technologies such as OCR, OMR and ICR , which provide reliability, speed and transparency.
Recount Petitioned Filed
A Recount Petition is underway.
Here are the charges as translated from the above link.
- The Interior Ministry in charge of counting the votes, has previously been caught flagrantly using the institution and the police to destroy political rivals.
- The government skipped its typical bidding process and gave the contract for counting votes of the June 26 election by “negotiated procedure” – something totally unusual in this type of contract. Indra is a different company than the one that counted the December 20 election, which won through competitive bidding.
- Indra is fully wrapped in a web of corruption with the Popular Party.
- The election results do not correspond at all with any of all surveys: never in the history of democracy had given such differences.
Reader Bran emailed, “there is a push to have the voting boxes opened and counted manually, under observation of the electoral commission.”
This of course assumes the ballots have not already been destroyed.
