GECOM is working with twelve recount stations having added two more on Tuesday last to speed up the process. The Commission is seeking advice from the National COVID-19 Task Force (NCTF) to add two more stations in an effort to increase the pace of the recount.
The recount commenced on May 6 with a 25-day deadline which comes to an end of May 30; the Commission is yet to decide whether the deadline will be extended and for how long.
