 Ruling Party: Web Cameras Will Not Stream Live During Ballot Counting

On the night of elections the cameras in the ballot stations will be working in the recording mode until the district electoral commission protocols are formed (signed).

According to the Regions' press service, the ruling party's representative in the Central Election Commission Volodymyr Zabarskyy in his interview to the First National Channel said: "Starting from the preparation session of the district commission, one hour before voting the recording and live streaming process starts with all the video sent to the CEC's resource where it will be stored. At 8 p.m. the polling stations close and after the people who are still there have voted the live streaming will be turned off."

According to Zabarskyy, the cameras will be in the recording mode until the protocols (including the are adjusted ones are signed). "It is important since all the information is transferred to the CEC and is stored there for a year. It can be accessed as in accordance with the court ruling by law enforcement as well as electoral process subjects without a court ruling in accordance with the order set by the CEC," he explained.

He also noted that two thirds of the funds allocated for the video surveillance of the elections had been spent on the Internet connection for the stations.
