Trial on cancellation of election of Astrakhan Mayor listens to 16 witnesses
The court session in Astrakhan on the lawsuit initiated by Oleg Shein, an ex-candidate for the Mayor of the city and organizer of a hunger strike for cancellation of the election outcome, has interrogated 16 witnesses of the claimant.
Prior to filing a lawsuit, Oleg Shein's team had stated that they expected confirmation of violations from at least 120 out of 202 polling stations.
The court still has to listen to 19 more witnesses from the Kirov District. Besides, 45 witnesses have been applied by the defendant – the City Election Commission (CEC).
Mr Shein said that he was satisfied with the dynamics of the court hearings, where the lawsuit is considered by the Kirov District Court of the city of Astrakhan. "I think that at this rate of the court's work, by the end of the next week we can start watching videos from polling stations, the "Interfax" quotes Oleg Shein as saying.
