He stated that the announcement of the election day according to the RA Constitution will be made no later than 70 days before the elections and the announcement will be broadcast on TV and radio.
He also referred to the election frauds connecting with the ink seals and stated that the shortcomings were mainly connected with a number of factors, perhaps the most significant of them being the temperature and atmospheric conditions along with the fact that they now were dealing with a completely innovative substance.
The CEC now is working on this issue to ameliorate the results.
