#JaVotes2016: Roberts complains of malfunctioning electoral machines

first_img As Holness did earlier, Roberts expressed concern about the slow pace of the electoral machines being used in seven of the 63 constituencies, complaining that they are frustrating the electoral process.

Both Holness and Roberts crossed path at the Dupont Primary School, located on Olympic Way in the constituency.last_img read more
