Opposition presidential candidates jointly demand manual vote count

Santo Domingo.- Six of Dominican Republic’s seven oppositionpresidential candidates on Monday arrived together at the Central ElectoralBoard (JCE) as a show of unity to demand the manual vote count on the municipaland congressional ballots, in addition to the presidential candidacies.

Luis Abinader, (PRM); Guillermo Moreno (Al-Pais); MinouTavarez APD; Soraya Aquino (PUN); Elias Wessin (PQDC) and Pelegrin Castillo(FNP) parties went to JCR headquarters, just minutes after the grassrootsmovement Poder Ciudadano announced a protest to demand the manual tally ofvotes cast on Sunday’s general elections.
