Lawsuits yet to be served to GEC

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Election Commission legal counsel Cesar Cabot says his law firm is not officially representing the GEC on the election challenge filed by the Gutierrez/Aguon team until they are assigned it. But Cabot says he believes once the public is aware of the full allegations, they will see they "ring hollow".

GEC executive director John Blas is withholding comment because the agency has yet to be served the two lawsuits that were filed last Friday in the District and Superior courts of Guam. 

Former governor Carl Gutierrez and Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. filed the suits, challenging the results of the gubernatorial race.  They contend that there were a myriad of flaws in the election process and as such have asked that the certification of the gubernatorial results be declared void and that the court order a new gubernatorial election.

The GEC board, meanwhile, is scheduled to meet this Friday.
