High Commissioner facilitated active suffrage realization by 2,000 citizens

Head of the territorial election commission of the Mitino District of Moscow A. called the High Commissioner’s hotline to report of the inadequate organization of the election process by the Moscow City Election Commission (hereinafter — MCEC). In particular, the phone provided by MCEC for re-checking the data on «mobile voters» was not responding, which made it impossible to exercise the right to vote by 2,000 voters.

The information was promptly forwarded to the Public Monitoring Team to observe the elections in Moscow, as well as to MCEC. The Moscow City Election Commission took appropriate measures to eliminate the violation and the telephone started operating.

Moreover, the employees of the High Commissioner’s Office set off for the cities of Shchelkovo and Chekhov of the Moscow Region to check the available information about alleged fights at the polling stations.
