Assessment on Vote Counting and Declaration of Election Result Notes for the Commune Council Election for the 4th Mandate

The associations and civil society organizations of Situation Room for the 2017 Election found that the vote counting process of the commune council election for the 4th mandate was conducted in accordance with regulations and procedures in most counting stations. So far, we have not recorded any complaint related to the electoral result notes, but we found that there are some irregularities in the vote counting process and in the declaration of the electoral results including: starting the counting process late, preventing observers from entering the counting station, conducting the counting process in the dark and/or behind closed doors., making unclear announcements regarding the votes received by political  parties, irregularities on validation   ballot papers, making mistakes in filling out the electoral result note form, and not distributing or posting electoral result notes properly.
