Two panels reject result, plan to appeal for manual recount
Suspecting "irregularities or mistakes" in the process of vote counting through electronic scanning of the paper ballots, The Change Makers and Oikko panels requested the e-Cab election commission to recount the votes manually.
After the election on Saturday night, the ballots were sealed within the box and kept in the police custody.
"We will formally appeal for a manual recount," Waseem Alim told The Business Standard on Saturday night.
Both the panel leaders said they believe the vote casting was conducted in a proper manner, but the counting was not.
e-Cab in a press statement on Sunday said any objection regarding the election results must be submitted by 4:00 pm, 21 June. In case of any objection, the appeal board would hold a hearing on 25 June and announce the final results on 26 June.
