CEC secretary: Belarus’ single voting day was organized well

MINSK, 29 March (BelTA) – The single voting day was held at a high organizational level and received adequate coverage, Secretary of the Central Election Commission of Belarus Yelena Baldovskaya told BelTA’s The Nation Speaks project.

“The assessments given by the country’s leadership and international observers who came to our country to monitor the elections, the findings of the CIS and SCO missions, and independent experts suggest that the elections were held at a high organizational level and with adequate information support. Holding the single voting day was quite a challenge because of a great number of new rules and regulations. And it was important for the Central Election Commission to see how this would pan out and how members of election commissions would implement the law,” Yelena Baldovskaya said.

Elections to local councils are complex elections from the technical point of view, the CEC secretary noted. “A huge number of people are involved, a great deal of work needs to be done as to the nomination and registration of candidates for deputies and information support for the elections. Checking nomination papers is a large and demanding area of ​​work for election commissions. Now we have the upper, fourth level of elections on top of it, the number of ballots increased; vote counting became more complex,” she emphasized. “It must be taken into account that citizens of the Russian Federation were also eligible to vote in the local elections. By and large, the whole campaign proceeded quite smoothly, without any incidents and tricky situations,” Yelena Baldovskaya said.

“Everything was absolutely clear. A plan, primarily for lower-level commissions, is always drawn up at the initial stage of the campaign, so that these commissions have a handbook of what, when and how to do things,” added Yelena Baldovskaya.
