More and more rumours occurring in the press right now. Has there been anything wrong with the voting? The Russian minister of foreign affairs has already complained that Azerbaijan did not give any point so Russia, even if they are strongly connected. And why did so many smaller countries gave 12 points to Azerbaijan, which do normally have no connection with that country, like Cyprus, Israel or Malta? Have call centres manipulated the votes?
There is a need of a transparent result for everybody. If there is a manipulation this would be a big scandal and would make the entire voting procedure dubious. Normally there must be a commissioner for each jury in all the participating countries. Furthermore the televoting has to be collected and reviewed under notarial observation and then it’s fed by Digame, the professional organization which is collecting and evaluating the incoming results since 10 years.
Nothing has been clarified yet and the EBU is investigating this issue.
