PRESS RELEASE BY THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND LOCAL COUNCIL ELECTIONS – 25TH MAY, 2019
The Electoral Commission refers to the report by Jeremy Micallef uploaded today on the portal of The Malta Independent entitled "Electronic counting: errors in published turnout figures due to 'fault in system'".
The Electoral Commission condemns the attempt (whether intentional or not) to cast doubt on the new electronic counting system to be used in the current elections. The Commission wishes to correct the written implication that the inconsistencies in voter turnout figures are somehow connected to the new eCounting system. The Commission therefore wishes to put at rest the minds of the electorate by confirming that the two systems are totally independent of each other.
