One of the main legal advisors of the People’s Progressive Party, national candidate and Attorney Anil Nandlall, has denied that the incumbent is currently preparing a move to the court to challenge aspects of the elections.
Nandall told journalists gathered at Freedom House that while there is a possibility of a move to the courts in the future, there is no plan at this stage.
“As far as I am aware, as of now, the party is not preparing anything to go to court. Not that we will not go to court should that eventuality arise if we see it as necessary but as of now, there seem to be some view out there being peddled that the PPP wants to delay the declaration of the results. We reject that notion. We are exercising the legal options available which are available to us to ensure the integrity of the process”, Nandlall said.
There have been reports that the PPP might move to the courts in an effort to delay the announcement of the final results of the elections. The party is denying those reports.
The local and foreign observer missions have all declared the elections as free, fair and credible.
The People’s Progressive Party has already asked for a recount of votes from several polling stations in all 10 of the districts across the country. The Elections Commission is seeking legal advice on that request.
