Greece: Semi final voting problems

by Stella Floras 77 views

The Greek broadcaster has released an announcement regarding the problems that some televoters faced during the semi final on Thursday. Some of the votes went to the wrong recipient and did not count in the country's result.

ERT informs that EBU and EBU's chosen partner Upstream S.A. are solely responsible for the handling of the televotes and not the local broadcaster. Upstream S.A say that, same as last year, 10% of the televoters keyed in the wrong code word. The company has tried to provide for such an incident by adding to the system all possible choices a voter may have.

So make sure you key in the right number and code tonight for the Eurovision Song Contest final.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
