From the day when the voters’ list was published publicly, the citizens are calling actively to point at problems in the voters list at the SOS-line used for reporting election irregularities (0800 88 888) that is enabled by civic activists “We Decide” – as was reported by representatives of the civil initiative.
“The citizens that contacted us have complained that after they reported oversights in the voters list at the State Election Commission (SEC), they were directed to contact the Ministry of Interior. In addition, MIO had asked them to submit estate documents for their homes, sale contracts, print-screens of the voters’ list and other documents, and in accordance with the law, citizens are not obliged to provide this information in this case”, said Sibel Amet from the civil action “We Decide”, who are responsible for the obligations of the SOS hotline.
She also said that the citizens were discouraged from reporting irregularities at the SEC because the whole procedure falls on the back of the people. According to the law, said Amet, Act 2, Article 50 of the Electoral Code, the request for evidencing, deleting or additions to the list are submitted in a written form to the SEC.
