UNC leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has slammed the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) for "corruption and fraudulent activities."
She also called on Police Commissioner Gary Griffith to investigate "corrupt officials" at the EBC whom she accused of conspiring with the PNM to steal the general election.
"I am calling on the Commissioner of Police to launch an immediate investigation into these corrupt and fraudulent activities at the EBC. From the commissioners to CEO to every single employee of the EBC," she said.
UNC supporters rang bells and blew horns when she took to the podium at the party's Monday Night Forum in Moruga.
She touched on allegations that Venezuelans were being issued TT identification cards, as claimed on social media, questioning how Venezuelans could have TT ID cards. Trinidad identification cards.
“Clearly these people are now registered to vote,” she said, demanding a full forensic investigation.
Persad-Bissessar claims there is collusion with the Housing Development Corporation (HDC) to manipulate the election through house-padding, registering non-nationals, and moving electoral boundaries to swing seats in the PNM's favour. The EBC seemed to be working along with the PNM, she said, in creating votes for themselves.
“Government is building HDC houses in all marginal constituencies, and closer to the elections they will stock them with their supporters to vote,” she charged.
The former PM sent a warning to Dr Keith Rowley and the EBC that the UNC will not let history repeat itself.
“Our eyes are on you and we will expose every one of you corrupt EBC officials," she added.
