The recount of the blank and invalid ballots of a sample of sections will be decisive to establish whether the appeal brought by Forzista Andrea Gentile against the five-star Anna Laura Orrico, presented with the aim of obtaining a seat in the Chamber, will be able to start soon. During last Wednesday’s session, the Montecitorio elections council decided to open the investigation and invited the individual groups to designate their own member in the verification committees. There is therefore a difference of 482 votes between the elected candidate and the appellant based on the data of the proclamation and of 484 preferences following the verification activity carried out on the documents of the individual electoral sections. In the Calabrian single-member constituency 02 (Cosenza) the blank ballots found in the sectional minutes are equal to 4,650 and the invalid ballots are equal to 6,135.
