Lefitst opposition DK seeks to send experts to monitor national election mechanism
The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has called on the National Election Office (NVI) to allow all political parties to delegate an IT expert each to monitor the election software during the European parliamentary election campaign and on the day of the vote.
Klára Dobrev, who heads DK’s election list, told a press conference on Monday that
“the massive election fraud” during last year’s parliamentary election should be prevented from recurring and called on “all democrats” to volunteer for the local tellers’ committees.
Dobrev also suggested that voters should approach the National Election Office after close of the signature drive in the campaign and check if their names are included in lists of parties they have not supported.
Referring to press reports, Dobrev cited a senior NVI official as saying that the national office “does not have the capacity or the authority to verify the signatures on the party sheets”.
