Ayşa Kerimova the Director General of TMB TV has confirmed this morning that SMS voting will not be introduced at this years Turkvizyon Song Contest.
The introduction of televoting at the competition has been discussed for the past two years. Last year in Tatarstan there were announcements that televoting was being looked at however in the end it was deemed to be impossible to implement in time. For now it appears to remain that one juror will vote per country/region, whether the scoring system of being able to give every country points remains is not yet clear.
