Policemen and officials did not interfere the voting Azeri Ombudsman
No cases of interference of policemen and state officials in voting at 13 May parliamentary elections have been recorded, reportedly said Elmira Suleymanova, Azeri Ombudsman.
Suleymanova said the elections demonstrate formation of voting culture in Azerbaijan, adding that a group of employees of Ombudsmans Administration was controlling the process of voting in some constituencies. Violations took place, she said, were mostly of technical nature. In particular, some voters did not find their names on lists and appealed to the courts. Besides, some officials refused to let people voting in case the latter possessed the outdated Soviet passports.
