The 14 political organizations that make up the Agreement for Transparency met yesterday to define their role in the electoral observation of the second round.
They started with a premise: the experts consulted said that, indeed, the chain of military custody was broken in the elections. This raises several doubts concerning the vote counting of April 2.
“To clarify these and other issues, we have asked for a meeting with the National Electoral Council (CNE) and the documents of the agreement signed with the Armed Forces, but until now we have received no response,” Lourdes Tiban, coordinator of this group complained.
But what concrete actions will they take for the second round? The 14 parties and movements are planning to form provincial commissions with their militants. They will be credited to be part of the authorized citizen observers.
