Ombudsman Diana Kovacheva has called on the Central Election Commission (CEC) to resolve the problem of the right to vote of persons who are quarantined at an address different from their fixed domicile or residence. For them no possibility is provided of submitting an application to vote by mobile ballot box.

According to the Bulgarian Helsinki Committee (BHC) more than 15,000 people will not be able to exercise their right to vote due to the pandemic. The deadline for people under quarantine to submit an application to vote by mobile ballot box expired on 31 March. The BHC warns that the people placed under quarantine between today and election day will be deprived of their right to vote by mobile ballot box, and that for this reason they will be taking legal action against the CEC, BGNES reports.
