  1. Yes we never get the news right,who ever goes,I hope they are prepared and with the right attitude.There is a lot of unrest,the place is hot.You have to be vigilant,and neutral,you have to have acces to all areas of intrest,pay a lot of attention when the counting starts,if you in any way see that somebody is trying to restrict you acces that is a bad signal.Ballot boxes get lost,get replaced.There starts the fraud.But its a lovely job to perform.
