RIGA, October 4. /TASS/. Voting began at Latvia’s 953 polling stations and at 98 stations organised in 41 countries on Saturday.
Head of the country’s Central Elections Commission’s information department Kristine Berzinya told TASS the Commission will report the turnout at noon, at 4p.m. and at 8.pm local time, and the initial results would be published shortly after midnight. By Sunday, the Commission plans to finalise all calculations.
Early voting took place between October 1 and 3, where two percent of the vote (30,371 people) participated.
The Central Elections Commission had accredited 30 international observers, including representatives of OSCE, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Lithuania, Estonia and Russia.
The voting once again excludes about 320 thousand Russian-speaking non-citizens, who were deprived of citizenship and the right to vote as Latvia with population of two million separated from the USSR.
