Electoral Board says voting system is ‘purged’
Santo Domingo.- The Central Electoral Board (JCE) on Mon. said the report of the pre-election evaluation of the automated voting carried out by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), which certified the operation of that system, gives “a step where to set a safe foot.”
“This is purged, purified and auscultated,” said JCE president Julio César Castaños Guzmán.
He stressed that although the IFES certification of that system cost US$300,000, it was funded by the United States Agency for International Development, because that was the condition for the work.
The official added that the Board was willing to assume the loan.
