Bejtullahu from GERMIN: The process of counting votes from abroad is slow, so far 28 percent of them have been rejected – Latest News
GERMIN organization, through observers accredited to the Central Election Commission (CEC), is monitoring the process of verifying ballot packages from outside the Counting and Results Center.
Sihana Bejtullahu from this organization described the vote counting process as very slow, reports Klan Kosova.
“On Tuesday, the verification of the persons who sent their alleged envelopes with ballots started and we assessed the process as very slow, taking into account that it was known earlier that a very large number of voters and yesterday the CEC has decided to increase the number of persons who verify each person who voted from outside ”.
Bejtullahu in the Special Edition in Klan Kosova also spoke about the envelopes that have been rejected by the CEC while showing the reason for the rejection.
“So far we have 12 thousand 746 people who have been rejected out of a total of 44 thousand 720 verified ballots. “If this translates into a percentage, it falls to 28% of all those ballots that are being verified, and this is a pretty high figure.”
“What we can see from here is that most of the people who were rejected are people who voted in groups – so some envelopes were delivered within a package and at the moment of verification if only one of them did not meet the certain conditions “then the rule is that the whole package should be rejected”, said Bejtullahu.
“Other cases of rejection are when other persons are not registered in the voter list for the 2021 elections, if they were registered in 2019 and did not know that they should be registered again.”
Bejtullahu further said that “GERMIN” describes as a lack of information to citizens on how to vote the entire percentage of rejection in these elections.
“We consider all this percentage of rejection as a lack of information of persons on how to vote. We as an organization have made a campaign “Diaspora Voton” but this was not enough as the CEC has not made a campaign for voters to clearly understand the whole process.
