The ballots were counted thoroughly and accurately during the parliamentary elections in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Santa Cruz County Clerk Gail Pellerin of the US State of California, noted the above-said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Recalling her 22-year track-record in election observation, Pellerin recorded that she saw well-prepared and organized election officials and informed voters in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), and this resulted in a 70.6 percent voter turnout.

The American election expert added that she witnessed free, fair and accurate elections in the NKR, and they were consistent with international standards and similar to the elections that are conducted in Santa Cruz County.

In her words, the NKR National Assembly elections were held on the level of the elections being held other countries.

The NKR National Assembly elections were held on May 3. Seven political parties ran for the country’s 33 parliamentary seats by the proportional system. In addition, fifty individuals, 27 of whom self-nominated, vied for the parliamentary mandates by the majority system.
