Elections in Colombia will be the most observed

Bogota, May 26 (Prensa Latina) The National Registrar's Office confirmed that more than 27 international organizations will provide technical accompaniment and electoral observation in next Sunday's presidential elections.

According to the National Registrar of Civil Status, Alexander Vega, these will be the most observed elections by international organizations.

Among the accredited observation missions, he pointed out that of the European Union, the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, the Center for Electoral Assistance and Promotion, Transparencia Electoral, the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, the Association of World Election Bodies and the Organization of American States.

All of them have the objective of providing guarantees and shielding the process and verification of the scrutiny software, Vega said.

These missions will be all week in the country providing accompaniment in different places and next Sunday they will observe the development of the day in different voting stations, some of which will have the implementation of biometrics. However, this week three complaints were filed due to impediments to the entry into the country of international observers such as the Argentinean Secretary of International Relations of Movimiento Evita, Alejandro Rusconi; the American citizen Teri Mattson, of the organization Codepink; and the Frenchman, Paul-Emile Dupret.

On the other hand, the lack of an external audit of the software for the transmission of votes is also questioned, due to the lack of contracting a company, in spite of the resources approved by the Government.

Yesterday, the President of the country, Iván Duque, made a call to the electoral authorities so that the resources already allocated for auditing be used in their contracting.
