The Elections Commission has apologized for delays in releasing election results.

Publishing a statement on its official website the Commission said that although a mechanism was in place to automatically update the results, the failure to receive data from polling stations resulted in the delay of releasing results.

However, since that mechanim failed the Commission had to collect data in written form.

Because of that the Commission was not in a position to enter them into the database.

The Chairman of the Elections Commission noted that although the Returning Officers were informed not to send postal votes separately, in some instances some Returing Officers had sent them via fax, creating some sort of confusion.

The statement issued by the Commission pointed out because of that they were forced to check the final count again which resulted in the delay.

Meanwhile, the Commission said that the election results will be uploaded to its website by Wednesday.
