Linka Toneva, Expert of TI-Bulgaria in front of BIT Television: The controlled vote was significally higher on this elections

Linka Toneva noted that there are many signals for vote buying and illegal campaigning, but a worrying trend is precisely controls on voters. According to her, the pressure was from both sides – representatives of political parties and members of PECs.

“Signals for controlled vote this time increase over 28 per cent of all offenses”, said Toneva.

TI-Bulgaria made monitoring of the elections in many western European countries and the USA, which generally she described as calm.
