“During the electoral process a number of irregularities was noticed: in Podgorica, at polling station 70-B “Streljacki centar Ljubovic”, polling station was temporarily closed due to the fact that a voter wasn’t registered in the voting register as well as in the system for electronic identification, so he wasn’t able to use his voting right”, said Gilic.
She said that in Golubovci at polling station 88 “Dom omladine Mojanovici”, the polling board gave three voters two voting tickets each for the local elections in Podgorica, and didn’t give them, as she clarified, voting tickets for the election of councilors in the municipal assembly.
“In Pljevlja at polling station 54, middle school in Kovacevici, a voter took a voting ticket for another personm, based on that person’s ID, took it to a car, and than brought it back and put in the voting ballot”, stated Gilic.
She reminded that all registered irregularities, as well as voter turnout percentages and other information regarding the elections, can be found on CeMI’s webiste www.izbori2018.me as well as social media profiles.
