MOSCOW, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Chairman of the Russian Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov was satisfied with the possibilities of video monitoring for the Russian presidential elections. “This is fantastic!” he exclaimed, watching the opening of the polling stations in Chukotka in the real time mode.
“For the first time in the history we are watching the start for voting in the real time mode,” he noted. Though Russian regions are divided in eight time zones, right at midnight on Saturday at the CEC atrium journalists and international observers could see the real picture of the start of voting at Russian presidential elections.
Churov noted a high turnout that was seen on the screen. He has made a forecast to Itar-Tass that the turnout will be high. “If the turnout is so high from the early morning in Chukotka, we can expect the highest figures,” he said.
The CEC chairman did not conceal that the project, which the Russian Telecommunications Ministry and Rostelecom had implemented, opens up unique opportunities for the election system.
