SAC exposes poll rigging

Students expose massive rigging 19 students from the student action committeevisited 14 polling stations in various constituencies. They uncovered massive riggings in most of these polling stations. Some of teh most common forms were altered voters list. Reportedly new lists were issued the night before, and hence the parties booths had voters lists different to those within the polling stations. Dozens of opposition party supporters were excluded from these new altered lists and hence were simply unable to vote.We also found instances of duplicate votes, where teh actual voter was turned away due to a vote already being cast. There were many incidences of coerced an bought votes by the establishment party. Most of these incidences were caught on camera or recorded on audio, including eye-witness accounts and victim's testimonies.

SAC will be releasing a detailed report shortly.
