Chief election officer, Steven LaRocque, has promised to investigate complaints by the United Workers Party (UWP) in the Grand Fond/Riviere Cyrique Constituency.
Party leader, Lennox Linton, also said the UWP is preparing documents to challange “the outcome and results of that seat in the court.”
On Monday Linton said his team was able to meet with LaRocque to discuss the matter.
The UWP has been staging protest action over what it claim was “fraud and mass irregularities” in the Grand Fond/Riviere Cyrique seat recount.
“We met with the chief elections officer Steven LaRocque,” Linton said on Monday. “We did not see the chairman of the electoral commission. LaRocque, based on our complaints, promise to have an investigation into the matter within seven days.”
He also told party supporters gathered outside the electoral commissions office that the party is preparing documents for court on the matter.
Linton also expressed concerns that police officers were “armed with guns” outside the electoral office as if “people came for trouble.”
“Based on what I am seeing, we are in a police state,” he said to supporters. “I am concerned and you also as law abiding citizens have to also be concerned.”
Linton reminded those gathered that it is not over yet.
“We just have to be patient but change is a must,” he said.
