No more than 5% vote against Luhansk region independence - organizers (Part 2)
MOSCOW. May 11 (Interfax) - The leader of the "People's Front" of the Luhansk region, Alexei Chmilenko, has said the counting of the results of the regional independence referendum is under way, the number of those voted against the independence has so far not exceeded 5%.
"The polling stations located in the outskirts of populated areas closed at 8 p.m. local time. The preliminary vote count has begun. The number of those who voted 'against' does not exceed 5%, according to the initial preliminary results. I think this figure will not rise and can only decrease," Chmilenko told Interfax.
The turnout at the Luhansk regional referendum was at least 85%, Chmilenko said.
The polling stations located closer to the centers of populated areas are still open and will close at 10 p.m. local time, he said.
