The Supreme Court of Puerto Rico today accepted the lawsuit filed this morning by Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced in which she requested that a new voting in all electoral precincts in which the established schedule was violated.
The highest judicial forum determined that the parties will have until today at 2:00 pm to express its position on the claims presented by the legal representative of the president. Vázquez Garced sued today the president of the State Elections Commission (CEE), Juan Dávila; Lind Merle, electoral commissioner of the Popular Democratic Party (PPD) and María Dolores 'Lolin' Santiago, electoral commissioner of the New Progressive Party (PNP).
“The plaintiff Wanda Vázquez Garced very respectfully requests that this Tribunal serve to revoke all the agreements made by the electoral commissioners to alter the schedule of the primaries on August 9 and order a new vote in all those electoral precincts where the established schedule was violated and where the vote could not be carried out, ”says the appeal filed by the Vázquez Garced's lawyer, Edgardo Vega Pabón.
Vázquez's lawsuit joins six other judicial appeals that question the agreement of the EEC with the electoral commissioners of the PNP and PPD.
