«Observers of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly also monitored the voting process at 48 polling stations located abroad — in Baku, Minsk, Moscow, Almaty, Beijing, Novosibirsk, Berlin and other cities. National legislation contains the basic regulatory prerequisites for organizing and holding referendums on the basis of universal, equal suffrage and secret ballot, as well as maintaining openness and transparency of the referendum process.
