LGE recount results in a tie

One of the 14 recounts in the local government election has produced a tie.

In the electoral district of Lengua/Indian Walk, a count of the ballot boxes has revealed that the People’s National Movement (PNM) and United National Congress (UNC) candidates secured 1,428 votes each.

Yesterday’s recount saw a loss of two votes for the PNM candidate and a gain of three votes for the UNC candidate.

According to a release from the EBC, the recount of the “poll card boxes” in this electoral district is still ongoing.

Nine other recounts which have been completed have resulted in no change in the outcomes despite minor adjustment in the results.
