While NPP President Carlos Pesquera's campaign manager, Edwin Mundo, insists on inviting all those who wish to vote for his candidate to join the party Sunday, the campaign team of his contender, former Gov.
On Tuesday, Mundo
again invited Popular Democratic Party
(PDP) followers and non-affiliated voters who wish to vote for Pesquera to do so Sunday.
And as Mundo
made the invitation again, insisting that no one can prevent a certified voter from casting a vote, Rossello's campaign team member, Leo Diaz, noted that they will challenge the vote of anyone believed not to be a NPP
Acknowledging that challenging a vote is within the Electoral Law, Mundo
noted that such action does not mean that the votes will not later be accounted for.Moreover, he
said challenge votes are only counted when the votes in question are needed, that is when the race is so tight that the votes might make the difference.
believes that the real intention behind the announcement of Rossello's team that they will challenge votes is but a mere threat so that NPP
followers who are not necessarily active in politics think twice about voting Sunday.
"They know that an open primary means a more divided result, therefore they only want to attract the core of the party," Mundo
has participated in more than one campaign closing, saying "Rodriguez has not done a single campaign closing," and noted that even if the ground of the Pedrin Zorrilla is larger, the Rossello team could close the area to give the impression that more people attended.
