They were interested in the order in which the parties announced their advertising campaigns and events, and where the places designated by the municipality for this purpose were located. The mayor explained to them that usually the last ten days before the election day the parties become more active in terms of events.
After the meeting, Zdravko Dimitrov showed the observers how voting is done by machine in our country. Chief Secretary Angelina Topchieva and Deputy Mayor Yordan Stavrev added that the responsibility for order during the voting rests with the bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which work in continuous communication with municipal structures.
