Employees of the Municipality of Smolyan are urgently supplying sectional committees with units in some of the settlements, due to the lack of electricity as a result of yesterday’s storm that hit the region. Despite the problems, the election day started normally, informed the Chairman of the Municipal Election Commission Simeon Velinov.
“The election day started normally. All members of sectional committees appeared. I have information about 10 villages that have problems with electricity, but voting by machine is not planned for them, and at the moment the Municipality of Smolyan supplies them with units”.
In the remaining 4 municipalities, in which there is a runoff, the election day started normally without complaints, signals and replacement of committee members.
