Ukraine: Bulgarian observer declares electoral process democratic and free

Pavel Chernev, a former MP from Bulgaria surveying the Crimean referendum voting posts across the Bakhchisaray area during voting day declared the process legitimate, democratic and free on Sunday.

Chernev said that he had checked around 13 electoral points thus far, and that the process had been peaceful, transparent and without incident. He added that he had seen no hindrance of the right of the Tatar minority to vote.

Around 70 EU observers are posted around the region to monitor the voting, visit polling stations and will participate in counting votes. Every voter coming to the station is checked for marks on their hands to prevent a person from casting their vote more than once.
