TSKHINVALI, April 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The campaign staff of South Ossetian presidential candidate David Sanakoyev has claimed violations at the polling stations No 83 and 84 in Verkhny Ruk, where South Ossetian voters residing in North Ossetia cast their ballots.
The staff also said that the work of Sanakoyev’s election observers had been impeded at those polling stations. “Our election observers said that plenty of voters were admitted inside polling stations in Verkhny Ruk, which hampered the work of observers. The observers could not see who approached ballot boxes and how many ballots were cast,” Lana Parastayeva from the Sanakoyev campaign staff told Itar-Tass.
In her words, the staff had lodged a complaint with the South Ossetian Central Elections Commission.
In turn, the South Ossetian Central Elections Commission confirmed the complaint but denied the alleged violations. It said the voting was being controlled by the police.
