The bloc added, ” During the voting process, fingerprints did not appear, which led to the deprivation of many voters from voting, and the process of transferring the boxes of these stations from the centers to warehouses to the airport was not accompanied by any agent of a political entity.

There are 180 voters x 518 stations = 93,240 missing votes in the announcements of the results of the first and second commission, and the ballot papers were not distributed according to the regulations.” And the decision of the Board of Commissioners, and the results tapes were distributed only, and the manual counting and sorting stations were not selected by lottery,” explaining that “ accordingly, we demand that the passports of the electoral commission’s cadres be withdrawn and prevent them from traveling until the counting and manual counting of all governorates is completed.”
