The Supervisor of elections Mohammed Saneem has reiterated that the Elections Office will not go back to those areas where people have missed out voting during the pre-polling period. He says the elections office will only go back to those places if there is any shortage of materials. In a press conference in the last hour he confirmed, the electoral team has gone back to Yasawa, so that the four left out voters were able to vote. “Repeat or us going back to a venue, is only if the elections office in the first instance did not take sufficient materials, such as the Yasawa polling station in the north, where we had four ballot papers short, that is why we went back there to allow voters to vote from that venue.” He says if the electoral team have been to a venue, and had sufficient material and waited as per the prescribed amount of time and voters did not turn up, they will not go back to those areas.
