​Big turnout for NCD pre-count

A large number of people are gathering outside the Rita Flynn Court to witness the National Capital District election pre-count of ballot papers.

They include polling officials, candidates’ scrutineers and supporters.

NCD Election Manager Alvin Jimmy said the pre-count was to begin at 2pm however, at this time, the venue is still closed with security personnel manning the area.

Media personnel are also waiting outside for entry into the venue.

The reconciliation of ballot papers aims to dispel rumours and suspicions of election rigging in the capital city.
