Praia, Jul 19 (Inforpress) – The president of the Special Electoral Commission of the Sao Tome Diaspora in Cabo Verde, Kader d’Abreu, told Inforpress this Sunday that the voting process for the choice of the next President of the Republic of Sao Tome is going “well”.
According to this official, the polling stations opened at 6 AM (local time) and seven in São Tomé, but the largest flow of voters began to register from 07:30AM.
Asked why a polling station was not set up in the Boa Vista island for the voters living there, he explained this is due to the fact they managed to register only 17 people.
“We have 19 candidates and each one is entitled to one delegate and a polling station has five people. In the total, it would take 24 people and Boa Vista only has 17 voters, a lower number than the candidates”, clarified Kader d’Abreu.
