SEOUL, July 25 (Itar-Tass) - A delegation of Russia’s Central Electoral Commission /CEC/ has discussed the prospects for future cooperation with South Korean counterparts in Seoul, CEC chairman Vladimir Churov said in an exclusive interview with Itar-Tass.
“In the light of an agreement on cooperation between the two sides, we also discussed a number of issues presenting mutual interest with our South Korean counterparts,” Churov said. “Specifically, we offered them to hold a joint conference in Moscow.”
“Russia’s CEC has gained some experience in organizing conferences of this kind with electoral officials from other countries,” he said.
Participants in the talks pinpointed three preliminary topics for the conference and one of them pertains to the ways of organizing the voting abroad, since considerable numbers of citizens of Russia and South Korea likewise live and vote abroad.
The second important topic is control over the finances of political parties and election funds.
“The topic number three that unites us with the South Korean National Electoral Commission is the interest towards technological improvements in the voting procedures,” Churov said, adding that the Russian delegation showed interest in the technological systems for voting at the polling stations, the counting of votes and the maintenance of voter registers.
