New Delhi, Oct 3 (UNI) The largest group of voters who took part in the New7Wonders campaign was children, a majority of those from developing countries.
Together, they made up the greatest segment of more than 100 million voters who cast their votes for choosing the seven new wonders of the world, a spokesman of the campaign said.
It was for the first time that children participated in a serious election, ensuring impartiality by casting their votes not based on national pride or political feelings.
Moreover, developed countries with access to the internet and non-stop media access, did not play a key role in choosing the symbols of global unity. Rather, people of the developing countries voted in large numbers, he said.
Many countries without candidates such as Armenia, Canada, Switzerland and Yemen, participated with enthusiasm, ensuring a truly global and objective vote.
