The president of the III municipality, who finished second after Gualtieri, questions the turnout and asks that the ballots be recounted tomorrow morning. “We want transparency, something doesn’t add up”
“But what 45 thousand voters in the primary in Rome. It’s impossible. At 19, the committee’s data, the voters including those online were 27,731. An official number, I repeat, came from 132 seats out of 187”. Giovanni Caudo, runner-up in the primary in Rome, he questions the turnout and asks for the ballots to be counted in the morning. “It seems clear to me – the former councilor of Ignazio Marino and current president of the III municipality told the Gazette – that the Democratic Party was aiming only at one result: improving participation in 2016. And it is no coincidence that they said that the turnout was 45 thousand people, a thousand more than the last time. But I don’t think it could have been more than 37 thousand “.
Caudo continues: “Just think of another figure, the vote of those who have pre-registered online has not reached 3 thousand units”. And so? “Something is wrong and we want to see clearly”. Caudo finished second and still does not know if he will continue his race alongside the winner of the primary Roberto Gualtieri. “In the meantime, we want clarity and transparency, then we’ll think about it tomorrow. For our area it was a great result. But transparency first of all”.
