Before opening the polling station # 48 in Marneuli election district # 22, the HRC observer found that the election booths were arranged incorrectly. The observer several times requested the commission members to turn the booths over so that the privacy of the voting process would not be violated. Finally, the PEC members realized how the booths were to be arranged and the problem was eradicated before the polling station was open. This fact demonstrates the problems in the qualification of the PEC members.
There was a problem of illumination in the polling station for what the PEC secretary had to start operations under the mobile phone’s light. The PEC chairperson satisfied the request of the HRC observer and added light-bulbs in the polling station.
