Results to be Challenged in San Pedro…

As of news time, a legal challenge to the results is pending. The Elections and Boundaries Department made note in a press release this evening that the result given this morning is not the official result. To be made official, the official forms must be handed in by the Returning Officer and the figures checked and verified for accuracy. The release distinguished between official figures and the hourly count maintained on the elections website, which does not take into account persons in the line at the time the information is transmitted. Nonetheless, in the figures provided earlier today, Daniel Guerrero defeated his rival Andre Perez by two thousand, six hundred and sixty-seven votes to two thousand, six hundred and twenty-nine, a difference of thirty-eight votes. His six re-elected councilors were Hector Tito Alamilla; Flora Ancona; Ruben Gonzalez; Gary Greif; Severo Guerrero and Gabriel Nunez. Here are the unofficial “official” results read by Cumberbatch.
