Several mayoral candidates cast their ballots in the Riga City Council elections on Saturday without using a mouth and nose mask at the polling station, the LETA agency observed.
To reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading, the Central Election Commission has called on all voters to wear a mouth and nose mask. Disposable face masks are also available at the polling station. According to LETA, in several polling stations they are located in places that are clearly visible to voters.
On Saturday, LETA managed to meet several party mayoral candidates in the precincts. Mouth and nose cover was not used by Linda Ozola, the candidate for mayor of the New Conservative Party, and her husband, with whom she came to vote. It was also not used by Oleg Burov, the candidate for mayor of “Honor to serve Riga”, and Konstantin Chekushin, the candidate for mayor of “Harmony”.
In turn, the face mask was used by Vilnis Ķirsis, the candidate for the position of mayor, the leader of the “New Unity” election list, who was met by the agency LETA. The video of the National Union for All Latvia!
