You're reading: Central Election Commission approves agreement on video surveillance system for elections

The Central Election Commission (CEC) has approved an agreement on the development of a video surveillance system for the parliamentary elections in Ukraine due on August 28, 2012 and instructed CEC Chairman Volodymyr Shapoval to sign it.

According to an Interfax-Ukraine reporter, 12 CEC members supported
this decision and three members, including Zhanna Usenko-Chorna, Ihor
Zhydenko, and Yulia Shvets, refrained from voting. The members that did
not vote refused to explain their position.

The text of the agreement has not been published yet.

As reported, earlier the Central Election Commission estimated the
introduction of the video surveillance system at the parliamentary
elections by Hr 993.6 million.

The government of Ukraine selected SITRONICS Information
Technologies, an international IT company founded on the basis of
Quazar-Micro, for the creation of a video surveillance system and a
system for counting votes at polling stations during the parliamentary
elections in Ukraine. SITRONICS was one of contractors for the
development of the video surveillance system at polling stations during
the presidential election in Russia at the end of the previous year.
