I understand that voting day has gone fairly well and the UN aim of a boring day has been met. I don’t think there have been any incidents that might affect the final result, although there have been a couple of rules broken.
I had to laugh when I heard the leader of a certain (minor) party turned up at a polling place with his supporters waving party flags. The reports suggested many members of the group were drunk and they were certainly breaking rules re. display of party materials within the confines of the polling place. I believe drunkenness is also breaking the rules.
I believe this guy has a good chance of getting a seat.
Yesterday, I heard that bad weather in Covalima has led to about 7 bridges being washed out which has messed up a fair bit of logistics planning. Access to some sites is now not possible by road so the UN and ISF choppers are/will work overtime to plug the gaps.
Counting starts at 7am Sunday morning in the 13 district administration centres and is expected to take 2 to 4 days with counting occuring between 7am and 10pm each day.
