The spokesman for candidate Luís Tilman, Francisco da Silva Barreto, was at the TR today to deliver more than a thousand signatures collected by his candidate.

“Today we delivered thesig natures of more than a thousand applicants from the municipalities of Viqueque, Manufahi and Liquiçá to the Court of Appeal. The signature of each bidder is accompanied by the respective identification documentation”, said Francisco Barreto, at the Court of Appeal, in Caicoli, Dili.

According to the candidate’s spokesman Luís Tilman, his team will now await the Court’s decision regarding the admission or not of his candidacy for President of the Republic.

“The Court has not made any statement on this matter,” he said.

It is recalled that the Court of Appeal yesterday admitted 16 candidates to the elections for the Presidency of the Republic.

The Court of Appeal ended up not admitting a presidential candidacy. The reason is related to the failure to comply with certain criteria, even though it has presented five thousand signatures.

“The candidate does not have about a thousand applicants from the municipalities of Viqueque, Manufahi and Liquiçá. Despite this anomaly, the decision is not final, as it may become final. This means that the candidate still has the opportunity to appeal the decision within one day”, said the President of the TR, Deolindo dos Santos, in statements to journalists.

“We detected several irregularities, such as the lack of bidders, authenticated documents an delectoral cards”, he said.

Admitted candidates are José Ramos Horta, Francisco Guterres Lú Olo, Armanda Berta dos Santos, Felisberto Duarte, Ângela Freitas, Milena Pires, Isabel da Costa Ferreira, Hermes da R. Correia Barros ‘Sikiliras Aihai’, Tito da Costa ‘Lere Anan Timur’ ‘, Mariano ‘Assanami’ Sabino, Rogério Tiago de Fátima Lobato, Virgílio Guterres ‘Lamukan’, Constâncio da Conceição Pinto, Antero Benedito da Silva, Martinho Gusmão and Anacleto Bento Ferreira.
