    Samad,

    What evidence you have for Blatant rigging.

    Would be interesting to see it.

    Samad,

    As far as names missing from the voters list is concerned, personally I think this should have been checked before hand by the people or at least the political parties working in the area.

    This shouldn’t have been left to the last minute, political parties should have a process to make sure that all the voters lists are uptodate. May be its time political parties learn lesson and have there offices working in the constituency through out the life of the parliament and not only in the last few months.

    Any information which you are going to share with the world should have strong evidence. I hope you understand what I mean

    Regards

    Yes.

    The identity of the observers has to be kept safe too. People have been fired at and so we have to keep a lot of things anonymous for now.

    Details will come soon. Please wait.
