The minister condemned media conspiracy against the APC and a misleading chart circulated by AYV which he complained caused a lot of confusion today. What they did not tell readers was that their chart was based on only 1,000 polling stations out of the about 11, 000. AYV has apologized for the oversight and promised to correct it. The chart gave cause for SLPP supporters to start circulating the wrong impression that the SLPP presidential candidate, Retired Brig. Maada Bio, had won the runoff by 53%.
APC SUPPORTERS JUBILATING
Minister Deveaux said that the APC will win the runoff because they did not only sweep their stronghold of the North, but won in the Western Area and got impressive results from Bo, Moyamba and Kono, though they lost there. He said that the APC was 30,000 votes up on the SLPP, according to all the results reported in from the polling stations by party agents.
The full FM Radio Tempo interview with the minister will be repeated intermittently tonight. We will bring you the time.
