The Civil Will Green Party
delivered a request to the General Election Commission of Mongolia on June 21, 2012.
In their request, “The ballot counting machines that are to be used to count the votes for the Parliamentary Elections of 2012 had previously been used for the elections in the USA two times and been detected that the machines have technical failure and malfunctioning. Thus, we received information that these machines have been banned from being used. There is a high potentiality that the results of the polling might not come up true if we use those machines, thus we must do manual counting of the ballots and double check if the results match with the machine counted results. Hereby, we are requesting you the General Election Commission to grant us with an opportunity to randomly choose at least 3 electoral commissions each from the city and rural areas and do manual counting to check whether the results match with the machine counted ones.”
Further, the CWGP is also appealing the other political parties and coalitions
to submit the same request to the General Election Commission of Mongolia.
The Government of Mongolia spends 16.8 billion MNT for organizing the Parliamentary Elections of 2012
, whereas 300 million MNT were spent for election procedures for Mongolians residing in foreign countries. On this election 2,500 automatic voting machines will be used for counting the ballots nationwide.
