The Elections and Boundaries Commission has warned the public about false posts being made in its name about PEP Diego Martin North /East candidate Phillips Alexander – and about wearing colours to enter polling stations. EBC stated that Progressive Empowerment Party Leader Alexander remains on the ballot as a candidate—and you can wear any colours to enter polling station, but not with party emblems.
The EBC issued a statement at 5.51am this morning stating it was made aware of a publication bearing the EBC’s logo, which went viral on social media last evening, stating that Alexander, the PEP candidate for Diego Martin North/East was no longer a candidate.
Alexander is on the ballot, EBC Communication Manager Bobbie Rogers confirmed.
Around 7.40 am, the EBC also stated it was made aware of another post circulating on social media and bearing its logo, purporting that people cannot wear certain colours to go to polling stations.
