This makes for less mess. And there is nothing to worry about, in the light of the past practice of the socialist Party around the figures of its ballots in-house. Last Sunday, and then in the beginning of the week, this was the kerfuffle the more total on the communication of figures for the first round of the primary.
it All starts in the early evening Sunday, when the first secretary of the PS, Jean-Christophe Cambadélis, and then Thomas Clay, president of the high authority in charge of supervising the election, announce a participation of between 1.5 million and 2 million voters. The goal they had set for themselves in advance. Problem : at around 23 hours, with only a little more than 1.3 million voters are counted on the site of the primary, on 5672 offices. At 00h45, the number of participants is even lowered, since there is more than 1.2 million. The next morning, 313.458 votes have been added, to arrive precisely at 1.562.584 voting on 6659 offices. It then indicates that there is a lack 477 offices to strip.
First problem : there would, therefore, finally 7136 offices and non-pas 7530 as initially announced.
Second problem: so that 300,000 voters were registered, the scores of the candidates have not moved to a hundredth of a second, which is mathematically impossible.
Solferino calls “the error of a permanent,” which would have returned the wrong figures at the wrong time. The site of the primary promised on Monday, after an update, that the final results would be published “within 24 hours”. This has not been the case.
on Wednesday, shortly before the debate, the final figures are eventually published. Participation finally settled in 1.655.919 voice. 7208 polling booths have been taken into account and 68 have had their votes cancelled or not taken into account.
