TSKHINVALI, November 27 (Itar-Tass) —— International observers have not reported serious violations in the South Ossetian presidential election, Federation Council representative Yevgeny Serebrennikov said.
He had visited a number of polling stations and said, “There is general political stability in the republic, which will contribute to the open and fair ballot.”
Estonian observer Sergei Seredenko said that representatives of presidential candidates signed up voting papers. “The procedure would have been excessive in any other country. In this case it is a 100% proof of the election authenticity,” he said. “Voting papers signed up by observers minimize the possibility of ballot box stuffing,” State Duma deputy Arkady Baskayev said.
In all, State Duma election observers described the presidential election campaign in South Ossetia as democratic.
“We care are about the way the South Ossetian election is held,” Baskayev said.
Another State Duma observer Olga Bobrovskaya had visited nine polling stations. “I can say that the election is democratic and voters are active despite the bad weather. The voting process complies with the law,” she said.
