Presidential election voting in Mexico City
According to information from PPLN Mexico City, actually the ballots sent by post reached more than 80 ballots. Unfortunately only 38 ballots were returned to PPLN Mexico City to count.
The amount of ballots that failed to return to the KPPLN was caused by the presence of a number of Indonesian citizens who changed addresses without confirmation, and the postal party was slow in sending back ballots.
The incident was enough to make a number of Indonesian citizens who failed to take part in the election via post claimed to be quite disappointed. (Eti)
