Journalists not allowed in premise of district electoral commission in Zakarpattya

07.03.2013, 00:28
Oleh Mokin, the chairman of Vinogradivska district election commission in the Zakarpattya Oblast, refused to register journalist Svyatoslav Babila (Tochka Opory newspaper) and forbade him to be present in the room where the local electoral commission was working, Zakarpattya Online reports.

In his opinion, media representatives may be present only at meetings. The chairman noted that no meeting was taking place at that time.

At request of the journalist, Oleh Mokin provided him with a notice, pointing out that "the law does not allow you to be permanently present in the premise of the territorial election commission in the period between meetings." The chairman personally made decision to ban the journalist.
