At an information meeting with the political parties last week at the club International on the route de Frères, Gaillot Dorsainvil, the President of the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP), accompanied by several electoral councilors has indicated that the March 20 election will be different from that of November 28, to avoid repeating the mistakes of the first elections of November 28, 2010.
Pierre-Louis Opont, the Director General of the CEP has announced these changes:
All members of the polling stations (BV) who participated in the poll, will be replaced. Pierre-Louis Opont has asked to the parties concerned to submit credible people whose names will be shortly drawn .
Some supervisors of BV will also be replaced. "We will sack more than three hundred supervisors. These measures may also be taken against some members of the Departmental Electoral Office (BED) and the Communal Electoral Office (BEC) which are suspected of fraud."
The criteria for appointment of the new supervisors were reviewed. To qualify for this position, the candidates must have completed their classical studies and have already performed this function in an election, without having been subject to complaints in their work.
In addition, the population will be supported by "orienteers", a new class of CEP agent, which will have as role to help the voters to identify their polling station. It was clarified that most of these orienteers will be Scouts.
