Parkop airs frustration over deferrals

Incumbent NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, says the Electoral Commission has failed the country.

He said this today during a gathering of supporters at the Jack Pidik Park at Five-Mile today.

Following two deferrals of counting for the NCD Regional and three Open seats, Parkop gathered his supporters in public to air his frustrations.

He said a simple process for counting has taken them five years to prepare for. Many other excuses were lame and stupid, and an insult to their intelligence.

A planned peaceful march by Parkop’s supporters to the Electoral Commission has been put aside.

The governor has been invited by Election Manager, Alwyn Jimmy, to witness when counting begins.

More to come.
