Phillip Edward Alexander, the Progressive Empowerment Party’s (PEP) candidate for the electoral district of Diego Martin North/East has reported to the EBC that he has become aware of persons from a political party attempting to influence electors to not vote for him.
A false document issued on social media last evening bearing the logo of the EBC reportedly stated that Phillip Edward Alexander is not a candidate in the 2020 Parliamentary Elections. This document, which went viral on social media is false, as Alexander’s candidacy is valid as the representative for the PEP for the Diego Martin North/East constituency.
The public is reminded that in accordance with Section 64 (3)(a) of the Representation of the People Act, Chap. 2:01, that no person shall interfere with or attempt to interfere with an elector when he is voting.
The EBC reminds the electorate to observe and comply with the rules on Poll Day.
