Reciting Final Beracha on Megilla


If one follows the Tzitz Eliezer and R. Ovadia, that 10 women together say all 4 Brachot, beginning and end, and if different women are saying the first and last perek, does the woman who says the first 3 brachot say the last, or the woman who reads the last perek says the last bracha.
If as, I think you taught, all the women have to follow along as, in our case, the other 3 women read, in order to achieve a halachik reading, are we all considered ‘one’ reader and therefore a different person could say the last bracha?

Yes, in theory anyone who listened to the first berachot and reading to discharge their obligation could recite the final beracha.

When splitting up the reading, it is customary for the final reader to recite the final beracha for all present.

Purim sameach!!!
