The People’s United Party says it has compiled enough evidence to challenge the San Pedro municipal elections results. PUP Leader John Briceno says that they have identified inconsistencies with the number of ballots cast to the number of ballots counted. Today Briceno confidently said that Andre Perez won the mayoral seat

“Yesterday the legal advisor gave a presentation to the National Executive and the recommendation was and still is that we should challenge it. We believe that something went wrong and we need to make sure that we have all of the doubt cleared. We believe that Andre is the legitimate mayor of San Pedro, that he won that election and that is why we are challenging that election. Well there have been a lot of inconsistencies that is why we are challenging the results- certain boxes did not tally, there were missing ballots, we have I think about 275 ballots that are accounted for we do not know where those ballots are. So there are number of inconsistencies that can raise and create doubt as to the legitimacy of that election.”
The challenge is expected to be filed this week.
