Response to Lemech Iro

I guess Iro has misunderstood my position in " Demand to halt counting". I had not raised any allegation against Dr. George for that matter. In fact, the media carried that piece of information on the intention to halt counting, resulting in my printed response.

Although I cannot deny the prominent status of Dr. George, yet, that must not be used as an excuse to solicitate one's view over the democratic process of counting. As I have already stated in my previous letter, fraud, irregularities, and bribery are but some of the hicups that normally arise during an election. It is because of this knowledge that the provision for a petition is being provided for under the electoral act.

Furthermore, I was only proposing for Dr.George to take up his complaints through the right procedure (petition) and not to slam a democratic process - counting.
