Within minutes of starting the count for the representative district 6 by the New Progressive Party (PNP), the candidate Antonio Soto accused the current representative Ángel Pérez of changing the result of the primaries during the first count carried out after the general primaries.

Meanwhile, Pérez insisted that during the primaries a scheme was designed in which voters who allege that they did not vote appear as participants in the primaries.

All irregularities raised will be unveiled today during the primary ballot count.

Among the most prominent reported accusations is that the electoral commissioner of the Popular Democratic Party (PPD) in Guaynabo appears casting a vote in a PNP electoral college.

“I presented over 30 people, but in that school there may be more than 100 people whose signature was falsified,” Pérez said in a radio interview (Wapa Radio), insisting that the alleged irregularities were committed by groups associated with Soto and the mayor. from Guaynabo, Héctor O’Neill.

For his part, Soto denied that he was involved in such anomalies. He preferred to change the subject to allege that his opponent committed irregularities to claim a victory during a poll that was already held in the primaries.

“His office employees altered the results thus causing an alleged advantage of 31 votes, which is what was subsequently reflected,” he insisted.

A minutos de arrancar el recuento por el distrito representativo 6 por el Partido Nuevo Progresista (PNP), el candidato Antonio Soto acusó al actual representante Ángel Pérez de cambiar el resultado de las primarias durante el primer escrutinio realizado tras las primarias generales.

Mientras, Pérez insistió que durante las primarias se diseñó un esquema en que electores que alegan que no votaron aparecen como participantes de las primarias.

Todas las irregularidades levantadas serán develadas hoy durante el conteo de papeletas de las primarias.

Entre las acusaciones denunciadas más destacadas está que el comisionado electoral del Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) en Guaynabo aparece emitiendo un voto en un colegio electoral del PNP.

“Yo presenté sobre 30 personas, pero en ese colegio pueden sobrepasar las 100 personas que se le falsificó la firma”, precisó Pérez en entrevista radial (Wapa Radio), al insistir en las presuntas irregularidades fueron cometidas por grupos asociados a Soto y al alcalde de Guaynabo, Héctor O’Neill.

Por su parte, Soto negó que haya estado involucrado en tales anomalías. Prefirió cambiar el tema para alegar que su contrincante cometió irregularidades para atribuirse una victoria durante un escrutinio que ya se realizó de las primarias.

“Sus empleados de oficina alteraron los resultados causando así una supuesta ventaja de 31 votos, que es la que se reflejó posteriormente”, insistió.
