COUNT STAFF CUT COULD SPELL NIGHTMARE FOR ASSEMBLY ELECTION

The notoriously slow process of election counts in NI, culminating in the horrific 2-day wait for many candidates for the Assembly in 2011 could yet be compounded this year.

BtP have asked for details of the workforce available to the Electoral Office for the last three elections, and planned staffing numbers for this years Assembly elections to be held in May.

Only 65 counting staff will be available per constituency, with only 15 senior staff per constituency.  BtP can reveal that there will be over 700 less staff counting at the Assembly elections this year – which could prove a disaster for anxious candidates.
