Election: Presence of Observers


Not all judges accepted observers from other constituencies. Observers were rejected, mostly by prosecutors acting as poll station supervisors. Some judges in the same position rejected observers, even arguing that since they are presidents of a court, they cannot be supervised by anyone. One judge insulted an observer by telling hem “come and take my seat.”

Some judges allowed presence of observers during voting as well votes counting based on judges club decisions.

Since the election committee allowed observers at a very late time the day before the election ad did not inform judges and observers, there was not a clear vision of what role the observers would be allowed.
