She said, “For now, what we have seen is a massive turn out of voters.

“Again, we’ve seen that the peace that we witnessed in the previous election, is also playing out.

“It rained heavily but we saw voters that were committed, enthusiastic, that want to exercise their civic responsibility in the rain, drenched.

“We’ve also seen the media, displaying the highest level of professionalism.

“We want to appeal to the political players, that they must always play by the rules of the game.

“We also want to appeal to the security agencies, like the ones we have seen at this unit 17 (they have displayed the highest level of decorum, impartiality and professionalism).

“We have observers deployed in all the units, so we are still going to move to check other units but for now, the security agencies have displayed the highest level of professionalism”.
