Sanders demands recount after the chaotic vælgermøde in Iowa

Bernie Sanders, who are standing as a candidate in the democratic primaries in the UNITED states, will have a partial genoptælling of the votes of support in Iowa.

It informs his kampagnestab according to the news agency Reuters.

Bernie Sanders had to at the support to see them beaten by 0.1 percentage point of the reamer Pete Buttigieg.

Thus ran the 38-year-old eksborgmester with 14 delegates from the state, while Sanders had 12. Most importantly, however, it was for Buttigieg that he could declare himself as the victor, while Sanders may have to settle with second place.

even before the final results from Iowa were published, rejected Bernie Sanders, that he would require a genoptælling in the state.

- We've had enough of Iowa. I think we should move the focus to New Hampshire, he said with reference to the next primaries, which will take place on Tuesday.

Support in Iowa was plagued by major technical problems during the counting of the votes.

It meant that the final result first was clear, several days after the candidates had traveled to New Hampshire to continue the campaign.

Even though Bernie Sanders now has filed a formal request for a genoptælling, so has his staff with no expectation that it will change the outcome.

- A genoptælling is just the first step in the process. I don't expect it to change the current calculations. It is necessary to ensure that the people of Iowa can have confidence in the final result from the support.

It says Bernie Sanders' toprådgiver Jeff Weaver on the genoptællingen.

the Requirement of genoptælling apply 28 constituencies, where the Sanders camp believe they have scored a few delegates in relation to the real support.
