Opposition coalition have stated that the Elections Commission has obstructed the voting right of 17000 people and that the right to vote cannot be ensured without changing the commission.

Speaking to the press today the opposition coalition stated that the commission should guarantee that they can work impartially before talking about international best practices. They said that the commission seems to be working to elect a certain candidate.

They further stated that more than 17000 people work in resorts and it is evident that the election is trying to prevent the resort workers from voting.
