The opposition People’s Progressive Party has made requests for recounts in a number of constituencies across Berbice.
Chief Elections Officer, Kieth Lowenfield explained that the request for recounts is limited to three areas in the District.
He said the requests were made in two constituencies in Rose Hall Town.
The reason for this request was as a result of a possible tie in the constituencies.
Requests for recounts were also made in constituencies on the Corentyne and a third location in District Six. The first recount in Rose Hall commenced around 14:00 hrs today while the other two are already underway.
Those recounts and the final declaration of results are expected to take place later tonight. Any other request for a recount would have to be made by noon tomorrow.
