Voting, Counting and Results

The polling stations are determined in accordance with the provisions of the 1992 Law as amended which state that each polling station should be allocated a maximum of 500 registered voters. The overall management of the polling stations is the responsibility of individual polling station presidents who are appointed and trained by the regional office of ELECAM. Each president oversees the allocation of duties, the setting up of equipment and the entire process of voting and counting. The president is assisted by a representative of the government administration in the particular area (the Administration) and representatives of political parties. According to the Team’s observation, on polling day political party representatives were responsible for the issuing of ballot papers and two scrutineers were chosen from among them to assist in the counting of votes.
