Party of Democratic Reforms noted along with positive changes a number of negative processes during parliamentary elections
The Party of Democratic Reforms (PDR) having analyzed the results of the parliamentary elections on 6 November 2005 finds necessary to note along with positive changes also a number of negative processes, the partyвЂ™s report reads, according to Trend. The elections reflect the general situation in the country, imperfection of democratic institutions and low political culture, according to the report.
В"We think, the process of candidatesвЂ™ registration passed successfully and practically all those who wanted to participate in the elections, received this opportunity, having obtained the access to the media.
At the same time the party focuses its attention at the number of negative moments: imperfection of the electoral law brought to monopolization of election committees by one party, the black PR also affected the electoral campaign, the acts of violence, interference of administrative and executive structures in the campaign.
In the opinion of PDR, many local and international institutions tried to hold exit-poll and in some cases some unfair and unprofessional people have been involved in holding polls and in a number of cases their results did not reflect the real picture.
В"We think, the country needs serious democratic reforms, particularly, serious reforming of the electoral system. The current electoral system demonstrated once more its non-compliance with the international standards. It creates the opportunity for violation of the election process and influences negatively the free will of electorsвЂќ, the PDR report says.
