The results were released to the media, last evening, by Elections Officer, Herman De Souza. According to the results, the incumbent GPSU head, Patrick Yarde, came out ahead of his opponent Gaspar.
According to Gaspar, his team, ‘Team Change’, was present at GPSU’s headquarters yesterday awaiting word on the results. He stated that De Souza left the premises, and shortly after he received a call informing him that the results of the elections had been released to the media.
Last night claims of massive rigging of the elections are being made were made by Gaspar’s team. Also, during the counting of the votes, Gaspar had complained to the relevant officials, in writing, about what he called “irregularities” in the elections process.
At an emergency news conference called last night by Gaspar’s lawyer, Nigel Hughes, Gaspar indicated that he is likely to move to file an elections petition. “
