A new governor is elected with 32% of the votes in the middle of a chaotic electoral cycle

In the wake of the August 9 primaries, just hours after the colleges, the presidents of the State Election Commission (CEE), Juan Ernesto Dávila Rivera, intend to calm the concerns and make sure that the electoral materials are read. at the time to the voting centers and that the process takes place in order without counterfeiting.

‘Se va a cumplir. I will not go back, ”said Dávila Rivera, referring to the extra-official versions of the series.

In the list of firsts, it is clear that the votes are fractional. Solo abrieron los colegios en 45 printos del New Progressive Party (PNP) and 36 del Popular Democratic Party (PPD). The lorries with the lightweight paper towels were late at night and the CEE officials did not know the sufficient time to complete the sheets with the electoral materials and the summoners with the protective equipment to prevent the propagation of COVID-19.

These days, however, it is clear that the CEE has ordered the printing late, and therefore the Printech company will not be able to integrate the paperwork at this time.

Temprano in the wake of the first day, the decision will hold the votes and continue the next day, August 16, a determination that was made posteriorly by the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico, unless it is assured that it will be present, , also voting hours.

Before the chaos, the minority parties, without exception, petitioned for the renunciation of Dávila Rivera. The opposing parties open the door to the question regarding the legitimacy of the vote.

“The decision to paralyze the process of illegal primary care. I do not agree with this action and insist on continuing to debunk “, said the current governor of elect, Pedro Pierluisi, who is in the midst of a new progressive with the mandate, Wanda Vázquez Garced.

“Están violando la ley”, expressed, for his part, Isabela’s salient salvation and entities aspiring to the governing body of the PPD, Carlos Delgado Altieri.

San Alcaldesa saliente de San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, quien aspiraba también a la gobernación por el PPD, fue más lejos y dijo, sin mistrar evidencia, que lo ocurrido era una artimaña de Vázquez Garced para entorpecer la pulcritud elalcic .

The third of the popular aspirants to the government, Eduardo Bhatia, blamed, for his part, the recent approval reform elections of the countermeasures to change the law in the midst of the electoral process and eliminate the vice presidencies in the CEE, which are occupied by the most experienced officials in these processes.

“This is the result of haber coagulation, the wave of state that dio (Senate President, Thomas) Rivera Schatz and the PNP have the new electoral”, said Bhatia.

Originally, the premieres will take place on June 7, following the event of the COVID-19 pandemic.

La Electoral reform overthrown by Vázquez Garced June 20, in opposition to the minority parties and the election campaign event.

Since the 2019 issue, Rivera Schatz has been pushing for a change to include voting on the Internet, amplifying the categories of votes cast and domiciled, and including only the first three electoral forces in the CEE administration, among others asuntos.

The proposal also raises the criticism of international organizations, specifically by the risk involved in the vote on the Internet, given that there are no security systems in the news that guarantee their fraud. Finally, the legislative majority of the PNP eliminated this portion of the project, and the governor passed the new statute stating that the media did not hold the consensus that the measure was required initially.

Dávila Rivera has tenid postural positions on the initiative. Initially, he advised that the implied numbers be changed and retarded for an electoral process that he started, and advertised that additional funds were needed to give effect to the statute.

The first ones will be completed on August 16th. In the run-up to the election, the victorious governor Delgado Altieri, the PPD, and Pierluisi, the PNP.

After three weeks, on September 3, Dávila Rivera, CEO of the CEE and, a few years later, Francisco Rosado Colomer was elected by the election commissioners as the new president of the institution.

The retreats in the CEE are huge. In addition to the precautionary limitations, the complications of the COVID-19 pandemic and the firsts to be celebrated in a single election in general elections, the vote is expected to be extended to cover tens of miles of people , acudían a las urnas el día de los comicios. It is a step in the right direction to ensure that there are more jurisdictions in the United States to mitigate the COVID-19 propaganda risk that generates agglomeration of people in polling stations. Hecho, missing a month for the general elections, the CEE raised 215,857 votes in favor of the vote.

In many EE.UU. states, the high volume of votes cast in advance was a novelty. President Donald Trump, who for that matter and will appear later in the polls, will begin to decredit the process and promote that his Republican followers follow the ballot papers in order to read the papers in his cases. In the past, Trump has argued that the foundations that the Democratic opponents plan for fraud in presidential elections will be presented.

Votes by mail or domicile are the last ones to count on a handful of electoral officers having to process a huge amount of suffrage, on the other hand succeeding in the day of elections that every voter has his own voting machine. For that matter, in the night of the elections, the presidential contingent will take place, but in the midst of which the results of the elections will be held at home and in the Democratic Party, which will favor the Democrats, even if the party promotes This type of vote, candidate Joe Biden assured his triumph, which was ratified by the State Electoral College in December.

Trump has not recounted the victory of his opposition leader, William Barr, who has been little secretary of state justice, indicating that he has not found any conspiracy cases involving a volume sufficiently capable of reversing the result of the presidential election. Barr was fired when he fired his statement.

‘N Plaaslike, tambiese chirurgon numerosas controversias por la aparizion de maletines extraviados en soberes con papeletas sin contar y descuadres entre las actas y las hoyja de votaion, entre otras irregularidades detected principales durante el escrutinio general.

These irregularities, in many cases, do not imply major consequences since between the candidates the sales are sufficiently large to show doubts about the winner.

Hubo, probe ban, excepciones. The most controversial contest was the San Juan Alcaldia, in which new candidate Progressor Miguel Romero won over some 3,400 votes in Manuel Natal, the Victoria Ciudadana Movement, which was held in front of the mayoral elections. The sale ends with the last group of paperbacks, including the voting vote. Natal said that a fraud had been committed, which had been denied by Romero.

Other contingents also have side issues. In Aguadilla, for example, the newly-promoted Yanitsia Irizarry played the mixed votes he received from his popular leader Julio Roldán, who won 40 monkeys in a row. In Guánica, the CEE issues a partial certification in favor of the popular candidate Ismael Rodríguez, who is advancing on the new progressive Santos Seda by 24 votes. In this contest by Alcaldia, without embargo, there are 2,362 votes for direct nomination, the majority in favor of Independent candidate Edgardo Cruz Velez.

Altesaam 24 municipalities cambiaron de mando, many of them in the easternmost zone of the country, the area that suffers more days on the terrains of home years.

Electoral results, in general, also show some trends in the electoral history of Puerto Rico. For example, Pierluisi, as the electing governor, collected only 32.27% of the votes. This is the highest percentage for a Victorian candidate. From the same mode, the candidate for the government of the Puerto Rican Independent Party, Juan Dalmau, won 14.16% of the vote, the highest percentage for this collection since the decade of 1950. From the same mode, Alexandra Lúgaro, the candidate from debutant Movimiento Victoria Ciudadana, won 14.79% of the votes, a mayoral candidate who won in 2016, when he was Independent candidate. César Vázquez, of the Dignity Project, collected 7.13% of the vote, more than he won the Christian Action Party, the similar ideology, in the 1960s.

The election results also include a power scenario shared with the PNP governing body and with the PPD delegation launching a two-member majority in the House of Representatives as the Senate. The minority representation in the Legislature is diversified, in the same way, with the consent of, at least, six legislators from the emerging party parlors, the election of the pupils María de Lourdes Santiago and Denis Márquez, as well as the senator Josient Vargas Vidot .
