MMSD leader, Eric Guimbeau, and other candidates Vishnu Boodhoo, Claren Counday and Eshan Aufogul, who were defeated at the last municipal elections, demand for a new counting of ballots for Curepipe. Furthermore, they want for the election of Irène Coret, Kirsley Gopaul, Ingrid Lecordier and Shehnaz Hoota from Alliance Lepep to be invalidated by the Supreme Court.
The case will be heard today, July 7. An electoral petition was presented yesterday in front of judge Gaytree Jugessur-Manna. The MMSD candidates also want for the Master and Registrar to review all the ballots, including those rejected by the Returning Officer. According to them, the way the ballot papers were printed caused confusion among voters.
