EBC still tallying numbers from General Election

The Elections and Boundaries Commission says it is still tallying numbers from yesterday’s general election.

Bobbi Rogers, Manager Corporate Communication at the EBC, told Loop this morning that they are unable to give the media official numbers from the election since they are still compiling them.

She was unable to say when those numbers would be available.

“We will not be giving any notification until there is a preliminary count that the chief election officer has authorised to be publicised,” she said.

The People’s National Movement declared victory last night around 10.30 pm stating that they won 22 seats over the United National Congress’ 19 seats.

UNC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar said she is not yet ready to concede and indicated her intention to petition for recounts in three constituencies.
