Belle Garden/Goodwood recount at 3 pm today

Election officials will begin a recount of the Belle Garden/Goodwood constituency in Tobago at 3 pm this afternoon, upon a request by the leader of the Progressive Democratic Party (PDP), Watson Duke.

The results of the election on Monday night showed the People National Movement (PNM) winning the seat by five votes, but the tight margin caused the party to be reluctant to declare the seat,

Duke said in a news conference today that during the counting last night, the PDP's candidate in the area was ahead of the PNM by two votes.
