New local elections following complaints
A re-vote will be held in two local authorities in western Sweden, following discrepancies in vote-counting in last autumn’s elections.
“The mistakes may have influenced the outcome of the vote,” Bengt-Åke Nilsson, head of the Election Review Board, told news agency TT.
The re-votes will be held in Örebro city council and Västra Götaland County due to miscounts in very close run seats.
A record number of complaints were received by the review board over vote counting discrepancies in the 2010 national and local elections.
