Mahera warned "directors" of vote counting in Kyiv

First deputy head of the Central Election Commission Andriy Mahera is dissatisfied with vote counting at some polling stations of the capital, he told journalists, ForUm correspondent reports.

“I do not like the way of vote counting at polling stations and the establishment of results at districts. If we compare the situation with the parliamentary elections of 2006-2007, the district commissions did not have such problems,” he noted.

He also said that the district election commissions accept very slowly the protocols from PECs.

According to him, some heads of precinct electoral commissions tearfully complained to him that they were not at home for three days.

Mahera noted that except for the human factor, new electoral law which requires two protocols at once complicates the work.
