The forthcoming election of the Krasnoyarsk Territory (Siberia) Governor will be "maximally transparent", Russia's Central Election Commission Head Alexander Veshnyakov announced.
For the first time in Russia during a big-scale election campaign all the poll data will be sent to the Internet not by the territorial election commission, but by polling stations, Veshnyakov informed journalists on Friday.
During vote-counting each member of the commission has a right to have a look at any ticket extracted from the ballot-box. The same right will be given to observers, representing all the 15 candidates for governorship, and journalists.
"Open vote-counting will prevent gossip and insinuations, concerning the election procedure," Veshnyakov pointed out.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
