26 Sep CAH News

More than 150,000 people have signed petitions demanding a recount or a new vote of the Scottish independence referendum after videos have emerged allegedly showing evidence of vote fraud.

Nearly 90,000 people had signed a petition on the global platform by Tuesday morning, and a separate petition on had over 63,000 signatories.

The petition called for an independent recount of all votes cast in last week’s independence referendum. This is while the petition demanded a revote of the Scottish referendum, in which “each vote shall be counted by two individuals, one of whom should be an international impartial party without a stake in the vote.”

According to Kirstie Keatings, who created the petition, there has been “countless evidences of fraud” documented during the independence poll.

The petitions were launched after several video clips went viral on the Internet showing examples of potential vote fraud during the Scottish referendum.Among the clips, one woman appears to place a bundle of “yes” votes onto the “no” pile, while another video footage shows piles of “yes” votes lying on a table designated for “no” votes.

In addition, election observers from a Russian monitoring agency slammed the referendum procedure as fraudulent.

Georgy Fyodorov, head of the Association for the Protection of Electoral Rights, reported that “there were more yes votes during the vote count.”

Fyodorov also argued that the “no” campaign “resorted to every violation imaginable.”
