THE Social Democratic Liberal Party has officially withdrawn all their representatives from the National Counting Centre yesterday.
Communications director Jese Sikivou claimed that after discrepancies, they had decided to withdraw their polling agents.
“After pointing out more broken seals and compromised ballot boxes to officials who continue to ignore these proven issues under their very noses, SODELPA made the decision to withdraw all representatives from the count centre,” Mr Sikivou said.
However, Suprevisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem after yesterday afternoon’s press conference said SODELPA agents were present at the counting centre.
The National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said their agents were still at the polling centre and there was no intention to pull them out until the counting concluded.
