CIS observers did not register any violations at the presidential elections in Chechnya
"We registered some shortcomings and violations of the election law, but they were mainly technical, could not substantially affect the course and outcome of the elections, and can be eliminated as a result of further improvement of the election holding practice in Chechnya," runs the statement of the observers from the CIS Executive Committee, read out by Dmitry Bulakhov, deputy chief of the Committee, at a press conference in Grozny. According to the observers, the elections were held on an alternative basis, involved sufficiently severe competition, and have been recognised as legitimate. "We declare that the elections of the Chechen president were fairly well organized, and voters were very active. We believe that the election campaign mostly complied with the legislation, and, proceeding from our personal monitoring of the election process within available opportunities, we recognise the early elections of the Chechen president as legitimate," the statement reads. Abdul-Karim Arsakhanov, head of the local election commission, has told journalists in Grozny that Chechnya has elected its president. "Chechnya found its president after the first round of the elections. No second round is expected," he said, having confirmed that Alu Alkhanov won the greatest number of votes at the Sunday elections. As Mr. Arsakhanov said, according to the preliminary data, 73.48% of voters supported Mr. Alkhanov. The head of the election commission noted that the voter turnout at the elections had made up approximately 85%. Mr. Arsakhanov went on to say that 505,866 out of the 593,434 voters in the republic had participated in the poll.
