The Electoral Commission has assured the public that the counting of votes is being done manually, and they have also received complaints from a number of individuals demanding manual counting of the votes for the 2022 General Election.

In a statement, the Commission says they have taken note of the contents of the complaints, and assures all registered voters that the counting of votes is being done manually.

They say this was also addressed by the Supervisor of Elections recently in his statement to the media that counting of ballot papers is done manually.

It says the Commission further notes that these are complaints and comments made in regard to the anomaly in the FEO Results App.

The Commission adds they can confirm that the FEO Results App is not used to count votes but is used to upload the data after the protocol of results is entered in the Result Management Information System (RMIS).

They say the anomaly in the FEO Results App has been rectified and the Final Result is now being published with the correct data.
