Civic group’s proposed observers roils the Electoral Board
SANTO DOMINGO.- One member of the five person Central Electoral Board (JCE) on Friday called the Observation Commission’s report regarding the civic group Citizen Participation issued yesterday, a disrespect to the institutionalism and an ignorance of its authority.
Eddy Olivares said he learned of the report through media and that the Commission headed by Marina Hilario isn’t authorized to disclose reports prior to review.
He said the JCE is a collegiate body and decisions to publish a report of that nature should me made among all of its members.
In a press conference Hilario said random samples of personnel proposed by PC as observers found “inconsistencies including people with criminal records for drug trafficking, aggravated assault and other crimes.”
