Serbia: Balkanika complains about the acquisition and exchange of judges’ votes
In a recent TV interview after the end of the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest, representatives of Serbia’s, Balkanika have made important complaints about the validity and credibility of the voting of the jury.
In particular, Mladen from Balkanika said:
“I saw that some of the so-called “serious” countries exchanged votes. There was an intermediary who visited the delegations in their hotels and arranged the exchange of votes in the jury rankings. They say to each other, we will give you these points and you will give us those. I was an eyewitness when someone approached the Australian delegation and offered them an exchange of votes. I also saw later during the voting that some countries did not receive the votes they had earlier agreed.”
