AD wants Electoral Commission to explain voting procedure
Alternattiva Demokratika has called on the Electoral Commission to inform the public about the voting procedure, including the possibility of voting for more than one party (cross-voting) and the way that votes are inherited whenever a candidate is eliminated or exceeds their quota.
In a statement AD said it was making its request in view of reports that the candidates of the two main political parties were misleading the public about the voting procedure.
Chairman Michael Briguglio said: “Permitting deception about the voting system and failing to inform the public about their voting rights is tantamount to tampering with the electoral process and risks invalidating it.”
Secretary general Ralph Cassar has contacted the OSCE Election Monitoring Mission in Malta and informed them of the issue.
