Four days after the presidential and legislative elections in El Salvado r, Congresswoman Claudia Ortiz, deputy and candidate for re-election for the Vamos party, said they will demand the authorities of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) as much information as possible from the final scrutiny process.

“We are going to defend what the will of the people has been, and I am convinced that the will of the people has been to give the Legislative Assembly greater balance and maintain the plurality of political representation,” Ortiz said during an interview in Front to the Front.

Among the information they will request with other political parties, according to Ortiz, are the security measures that have been taken and that the report of the chain of custody that guarantees that the votes were not violated during their transfer are made public.

She also said that the TSE, by ordering the opening of the voting boxes, “has confessed that there was a collapse” of the system because it is unable to process the minutes and because it does not have preliminary results of the legislative elections.

“It comes back to more information that this has been a collapse that has been in the process of counting and processing data and results,” he said.

Despite considering the situation “delicate,” Vamos remains hopeful that the political institute will continue within the Legislative Assembly and claim that people who are part of the observer representation observadoreshave sent them information that their party has received a lot of support, as recorded in the vote count.

“We are still in the Legislative Assembly, we want to take care of that and that the will of the people also remains in full, not one more vote of one vote less but precisely what people said in the polls and that everything that has happened has not allowed the light to come out,” he said.
