DR1 - Despite the recent controversy affecting the results reporting process, once again the head of the Central Election Board (JCE), Roberto Rosario, has issued statements that confirm his goal of having the election results known across the country by the end of Election Day, 20 May.
El Nuevo Diario quotes Rosario as saying that the first bulletin will be issued at 10pm and that the winning candidate will be known before midnight.
The JCE president reiterated that every precaution is being taken to avoid any sort of difficulty in the transmission of the voting results.
He told eminent journalist Nuria Piera that a winner would be declared, even if by just one vote.
The JCE had issued a resolution calling for simultaneous availability of results to the JCE, political parties, the media and on the Internet. But the latest statements by Rosario reveal he is having second thoughts on the vulnerability of the transmission of the data and there is concern he may revoke the disposition. Read original at DR1.
