Bekeshkina: Some voters had to queue for half an hour to stand

Director of "Democratic Initiatives Ilko Kucheriv" ​​Irina Bekeshkina notes high turnout in Kiev, but the poor organization of the commission districts that could affect the election results.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, she said at a press conference dedicated to the National Exit Poll - 2014, saying that could affect the results of exit polls and elections in general.

In particular, it noted that in some polling stations observed a very strong heat, a lot of people on the premises, and in some queues voters had to stand in a half hour.

"The organization was very bad this did not exist at all" - the expert added.

Bekeshkina noted that one of the causes of poor organization of election commissions this year was to reduce the number of commissioners.

Read all stations in Kiev opened and is operating normally

"They are under a variety of reasons. One of them - what they half pay for these elections,"- she said.

According to experts, this whole situation could affect the outcome of the elections in general, because, she said, if older people seeking to survive the end of the queue and vote, the youth leaves the station and says, allegedly will return to vote.

"I do not think it really affected the presidential election, the less the difference in age, more regional. But in local elections in Kyiv may affect"- said the expert.

Read Elections are held throughout the country, there is a high turnout of citizens - Turchynov

In addition, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the "National Exit Poll - 2014" Ihor Kohut noted that the results of 12.00 on some sites in Ukraine have voted 50% of voters.

Also spokeswoman Fund "Democratic Initiatives Ilko Kucheriv" ​​Yuri Gorban said that the National exit poll is scheduled for 400 polling stations and interview of 17-18 thousand people.

A whopping 82 degrees and half an hour standing in line?

Sounds to me like authorities are trying to set the stage in case the results don't turn out the way they want them to.

ONE UKRAINIAN POSTED:
“1. Separatists prevented voters in Donetsk and Lugansk from voting. The eastern regions were the absolutely most likely to vote for a pro-Russian candidate or at least force a runoff that could buy more time to discredit Western-leaning frontrunner Petro Poroshenko...
2. The only voters most likely to send a message that the regions need greater autonomy and do not want to join Europe.
3. They literally ‘shut up’ the only people that were likely to represent their interests and helped ENSURE that Poroshenko could coast to a first-round victory.
4. They also demonstrated to the residents of the regions they want to control showing their idea of democracy is not incompatible with threats of murder and the destruction of ballot boxes that would have given their constituents a voice.”

Well done, morons.

To be fair...'Porsh' is considered least of the bad to Ukrainians...what that means for Ukraine doesn't sound very encouraging...at this point if he can stop the war that would be a major accomplishment.

Yuri Butusov [Contributing Editor at Tsenzor.NET]

According to “Censor.” the army head of the regional State administration, Donetsk region, Vladimir Minack Theatre: “elections in the region were held without major irregularities. For technical reasons, not been on time 6 polling stations are open. However, the remaining 55 polling stations voting flawlessly. As of 19.00 10788 citizens voted-14.2% per cent of the electorate”.

Activist and Director of the local TV company “Capri” Victor Prilepsky stated “Censor.”: “Not for the first time on the territory of our region are truly democratic and fair elections. No podvozov, no voter carousels and bribery. The turnout was in the Donbass region in elections always-simply dorisovyvali then the remaining votes in electoral commissions.

Today we, Donetsk region, first got this result on the turnout, and the free expression of their will. For us, this is the first signal that the future of Donbass in Ukraine would be independent and democratic.

I want to thank you for supporting our struggle for unity of Ukraine in the Krasnoarmeysky district of Patriots from all regions of our country. Only thanks to the support of the Ukrainian authorities, through the personal credibility of Igor Kolomoisky, a situation has been stabilized in Western Donbass. And calm day of voting is the best confirmation of this fact. Thank you believe in Donbass. Glory To Ukraine!”

On my own I would like to note that the krasnoarmeysky district is one of the most critical in the Donetsk region. Here is one of the largest and profitable coal enterprises of our two countries, “Kanash”, owned by the oligarchs of the party of regions, Leonid Bajsarovu, brothers Vasilyev, Russian oligarch Nusenkisu. As well as the processing plant owned by Alexander Lukashenko-the son of the former President. The peaceful elections in Krasnoarmeysk-best model, that can be used to restore order in the Donbass region. (Translated by Bing)
