The voting at the polling stations in Canada takes place calmly and without violations. At the same time, more voters were registered this time than in the first round, as 112 Ukraine reported citing Ukraine’s Ambassador to Canada Andry Shevchenko.
“According to the results of the first monitoring, there are more voters in the second round. At three polling stations opened Canada, there are more voters by 11% and it is, possibly, a serious indicator. We have a possibility that today can be the record turnout in Canada during many years of voting. Thank God, everything is peaceful; everything is organized well; the commission is good. But, I will say, of course, the mood of people is very important. We need to understand that it is people, who live here but their hearts are at home, in Ukraine; it is people, who rooted all these years for things happening in Maidan, who helped during the war; today they have a possibility to vote; the atmosphere is very solemn,” the ambassador emphasized.
He specified that Ukrainian foreign passport is the ground for the voting and the presence of dual citizenship is not checked.
