OAS Concerned About Low Turn-Out

The Observation Mission of the Organization of American States, OAS which monitored the elections says it’s very concerned about the low voter turn-out at the polls.

The head of mission for the OAS is Janet Bostwick.

She’s calling on statutory bodies to launch a public education campaign to stimulate voter interest in the electoral process.

Meanwhile, Ms. Bostwick is also calling on the electoral authorities to make special provisions for some citizens to vote outside their designated polling divisions.

And Ms. Bostwick says the OAS took note of the incidents of violence which occurred before and on election day.
