The Electoral Contentious Tribunal (TCE for its Spanish acronym) ordered this morning to undertake a new review of signatures of the Sociedad Unida Mas Accion movement (SUMA), which had been left out of the 2013 elections for failing to obtain the 157,000 required support signatures for the registration of the group.
“Justice has been done, a logical order that we had done is being accepted“, said Mauricio Rodas, leader of SUMA.
“We submitted a claim to the CNE to revise 6300 signatures that were improperly rejected during the verification process, with these signatures, once approved, we will overcome comfortably the 1319 rubrics which, according to the CNE, we needed to registration,” said Rodas.
While TCE ordered review of signatures from the SUMA movement, a date for such review is still unclear. (MZ)
