Botswana calls for audit of results

The Government of Botswana has called for an audit of the elections after its 80-member observer noted numerous irregularities.

“There is a need for an independent audit of the just concluded electoral process,” said the statement. “Such an audit will indicate any shortcomings and irregularities that could have affected its result, as well as the way forward. This will ensure that all involved in future elections would be aware of what to look out for and that there is no repeat of the same.

“There are many examples that our observers shared with Government that clearly indicate that the process was undermined by these and other irregularities,” said the statement. The statement said Botswana hoped the contentious issues would be placed on the agenda of the SADC summit to be held in Lilongwe later this month.
