Wet start to Central voting
Voting got off to a wet start in Couva today.
Voters who braved the early-morning showers to vote at the Couva AC School complained that EBC staff seemed to have had little training.
One man complained that the lines took too long to move while other voters said they had to stand in the rain under the eaves of the building.
Another complained that even though he had a poll card the poll clerk told him his name was not on the revised list. When the list was doublechecked the man’s name was on the list.
In Chaguanas, former mayor Orlando Nagessar and Dr Surujrattan Rambachan, who both said they voted for their party, the UNC, said the voting process was quite smooth and efficient at the Chaguanas Community Centre and the Montrose Government School where they cast their respective votes.
Nagessar said he was worried that the rain would keep away voters. Nagessar said he was expecting a higher than the normal 20 per cent turnout for local government elections. Rambachan said he was confident that the electorate would vote for the UNC and said “several” (sic) voters had returned to the PP Government coalition parties.
