Election results have been approved in all municipalities, but in Jelgava and Sigulda region they will have to be confirmed again / Day


However, in Jelgava and Sigulda region, the results will have to be confirmed again, when a total of 21 unstamped envelopes will be added.

The submitters of the lists of candidates, as well as the nominated candidates have the right to contest the decision of the municipal election commission regarding the approval of the election results within three working days after the day of its adoption by the CEC.

In Jelgava, the addition of 11 unstamped envelopes is planned for the 203rd polling station on Friday, June 11, at 9 am.

As reported, CEC decided to add 11 unsealed envelopes to the results of Jelgava City Council elections and to add ten unsealed envelopes to the results of Sigulda municipality elections.

Consequently, the CEC has decided to cancel the election results previously approved by the local election commissions in Jelgava and Sigulda region. After adding the votes, the municipal election commissions will have to decide again on the approval of the election results.

The Commission heard the heads of the two stations involved at a meeting today, and it was assumed at the meeting that the envelopes were not sealed due to human error. Bērziņa explained that CVK decided to add unstamped envelopes, because no malpractice was detected in both sections. Such a decision was made in accordance with the case law in a similar situation in the extraordinary elections of the Riga City Council.
