Section P21

  1. At the meeting referred to in section P 20, before the result of the election is announced, the central electoral committee may decide, either ex proprio motu or in response to a reasoned request from one or more voters, to conduct a re-­count of the ballot papers from all or from one or more polling stations if there are serious grounds for suspicion that errors in the count that might affect the allocation of seats have been made by one or more polling stations. The mayor who has the relevant ballot papers in his possession shall have them taken immediately to the central electoral committee at the latter’s request.


  1. On receipt of the ballot papers, the central electoral committee shall immediately start the re-count. It shall be empowered to open the sealed packets and to compare the contents with the official reports of the electoral committees.
