NOVI SAD — Several persons were arrested on Sunday for interfering with the election process in Novi Sad.
They were detained after they in front of a polling station offered voters RSD 2,500 to vote for a certain electoral list.
The electoral board members told B92 that the voting would continue since the incidents happened outside the polling station and that the election process was not jeopardized.
“Police intervened in another polling station in Novi Sad where an electoral board member smashed a ballot box,” City Electoral Commission (GIK) President Predrag Zagorčić told reporters.
He added that the incident occurred in the Novi Sad’s neighborhood of Vidovdansko naselje and that the voting continued soon after.
Opening of seven polling stations in Novi Sad was delayed for about an hour due to technical problems, GIK told Beta news agency.
