The European Union Election Observation Mission – Paraguay 2018 attended this morning the third and last Preliminary Electoral Results Transmission (TREP, for its acronyms in Spanish) organised by the Superior Tribunal of Electoral Justice (TSJE) in view of the general elections next April 22

A total of 122.596 TREP certificates with test data were transmitted this morning from 1.099 polling stations in the third and last transmission drill from the Preliminary Electoral Results Transmission (TREP) before its implementation in the general elections on April 22.

In this third and last drill, the IT officials received said documents at the Asunción’s electoral headquarters for their computing and digitalisation.

According to the Electoral Justice Informatics Director, Fausto von Streber, “the verification activities were successful. On April 22 we will make a website live in order to visualize the counting of votes in real time for individual positions and there will be a special section were people will be able to look at all the polling stations’ protocols issued by all the authorized polling centres.”

Members from the European Union Election Observation Mission – Paraguay 2018 and the parties’ technical representatives, political movements, alliances, and electoral coalitions who presented candidates, accompanied the TREP technical tests carried out at the Electoral Justice headquarters and at polling centres.

A total of 1.257 officials were assigned to fulfil roles such as CTX (certificates transmission responsible) and 511 work at the Electoral Justice headquarters as computers, operators, verifiers, coordinators, technicians, supervisors, and chiefs.

The TREP transmission will be carried out digitally and through voice in the centres without data coverage.

The poling centres with 3 to 50 polling stations will have a CTX, and those with more than 50 polling stations will have an additional CTX.
