Until now, there is not a single complaint or report of irregularity that has been received by the municipal election commission. Its members were summoned for questioning because of the incident with Asen Vassilev. Last week, he was unable to vote in Haskovo because it turned out that he was removed from the list, since he appeared in the GRAO database with a current address in the United States from 20 years ago. During the week, Vasilev stated that he had prepared documents with which he would be able to vote today. The OIC in the city states that the only option for this to happen is for Vassilev to present a document that his current address on the territory of the USA has been deleted.
