Sofia. After the European election, President Rumen Radev will invite the Central Election Commission and the State e-Government Agency to discuss the next steps for the introduction of remote electronic voting, he said at the beginning of his meeting with the CEC management, Focus News Agency reports. Millions of Bulgarians outside and in the country are waiting for the opportunity to vote online, Radev said. He invited the CEC to share their views on reducing invalid ballots and the risk of election manipulation. For the upcoming European election, he stressed on the introduction of a certain number of voting machines as indicated in the new Electoral Code. “I hope it will finally become a reality. I know it is difficult for you, but rules have to be respected. There must be 3,000 machines. I want to hear your views on the criteria by which those machines will be distributed between the election commissions, and your views to protect machine voting – software, physical and hardware protection. It is very important to prevent any compromising of machine voting,” the president said.
CEC Chairperson Stefka Stoeva said there were certification problems with the voting machines for the upcoming election. The public procurement will be today inspected by external experts. She said the criteria for the distribution of at least 3,000 machines should be transparent. CEC will study the issue of invalid ballots after the election and will consider whether machine voting can help reduce their number.
