Informatics chief’s resignation is the Electoral Board’s first major scandal
Santo Domingo.- Board Central Electoral (JCE) president Roberto Rosario denied Tuesday that an internal crisis affects the organization, but declined comment on the scandal in the wake of the resignation of the entity’s chief informatics officer.
Rosario said he’ll speak on the controversy in “due course.”
With just seven months to the May 2012 presidential election, the resignation of Miguel Angel Garcia comes as the JCE modernizes the electoral process, and represents its first major public dispute in Rosario’s tenure.
For Presidency Chief of Staff Cesar Pina Toribio, Garcia’s resignation won’t affect the election, but noted that he was an official who made great contributions in all advances which the JCE can exhibit thus far.
