Defeated UNC candidate for Tunapuna David Nakhid, left, walks with campaign manager Hamlyn Jailal to a press conference at the Upper El Dorado Community Centre in El Dorado, Tunapuna, yesterday.

Elections and Boundaries Commission Chief Elections Officer Fern Narcis-Scope yesterday rubbished claims by the United National Congress’ candidate for Tunapuna David Nakhid, that the recount he requested in the marginal constituency was being done in an undemocratic manner.


Contacted by Guardian Media yesterday to respond to claims made by Nakhid during a press conference at the El Dorado Community Centre, Narcis-Scope said he and his team were, in fact, not abiding by the guidelines set by the EBC returning officer for the recount process.
