The Central Election Commission (CEC) on June 18 will examine the last files submitted by candidates for being registered as contenders in the July 11 elections. These are the New Historical Option Party and independent candidates Ion Stegărescu and Veaceslav Valico.
The agenda of the meeting does not include the establishment of polling stations outside the country’s borders. By its June 17 judgment, the Chisinau City Appeals Court obliged the CEC to review the last decision to this effect and to take into account the notice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, which recommended establishing at least 190 polling stations.
Contacted by IPN for details, CEC president Dorin Cimil said that consultations with representatives of the Ministry were set for today. After them, the CEC will come with a clear reaction on the issue.
