EBU to consider petition calling for revision of Eurovision 2016 results
The European Broadcasting Union will consider the petition calling for a review of the results of 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, RIA Novosti reports.
“We know about the petition, and the issue will be discussed today,” EBU Press Secretary Paul Jordan told the agency. The EBU is expected to publish the answer later today.
Over 200,000 people signed the online petition launched on Change.org in just two days.
“We understand that jury voting and televoting process is a hard and emotional one, but the number of people who’ve signed this shows that how many people are sure that this year’s ‘winner’ is not the one who should really win the contest. We have no doubt in justice and privacy of contest that’s why we think that there’s need to revise the results,” Arthur Hovhannisyan from Armenia, author of the petition on the Change.org website, wrote.
