(The Nassau Guardian) Prime Minister Perry Christie assured today that the government is not involved in any deceptive moves intended to steal today’s general election.
The prime minister said he wants to see a free and fair election.
Christie was asked to respond to reports of voter irregularities in Elizabeth, where voting was suspended and eventually resumed this morning amid concerns from the Free National Movement over the handling of the advance poll ballot boxes, and missing unused ballots.
“I’m hoping that all the reports amount to very little because it is difficult for anyone to make a judgment to suspend voting and I’m hoping that, that kind of experience can be avoided,” he said.
The prime minister also said: “I find it inconceivable that there could be any kind of intent to deceive or intent to confuse. We think we have put in place the personnel to prevent that.
