MOSCOW, March 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Reports are coming to the call centre of the Russian Public Chamber from public observers, who are working at polling stations in Russian federal constituents. The reports are coming from public observers in Yakutia and the Amur Region, the press service of the Public Chamber reported.
Some 202 people (they are registered as representatives of the official website of the Russian Public Chamber www.oprf.ru ) are monitoring the elections in regional public chambers.
The voting continues as scheduled, the observers have the free access to the polling stations, the information about the candidates is accessible for the voters, the ballot boxes are sealed off in the presence of observers, the public observers said.
“Still the information, which is coming to us from public observers, points to a calm situation at the polling stations. Meanwhile, our observers reported several problems. They have already found the case of the incorrect installation of the web cameras at a polling station in Blagoveshchensk, there were some problems with the access of public observers from the head of the district election committee, but the Central Elections Commission solved this problem quickly,” a member of the Public Chamber and the co-chairman of the Public Chamber working group for public control over the elections, Maxim Grigoryev, said.
“We are monitoring the elections so that the elections in the Russian Federation will be fair and transparent, our task is to rule out possible falsifications as much as possible and to contribute to the observance of the law,” he pointed out.
On March 4-5, the Public Chamber works under the special schedule. All information about the voting in the regions is posted at the special section entitled as the diary of the public observer.
The hotline of the Russian Public Chamber also works since 02:00 Moscow time on March 4 for the voters: 8-800-700-8-800 (the call is free for all Russian regions).
