Moldova Can Validate the November 1 Presidential Elections

Moldova Can Validate the November 1 Presidential Elections
01 November 2020 | 15:55

Today, November 1, presidential elections are taking place in Moldova. Voting started at 7:00 AM and ends at 21:00 (EET).

Central Electoral Commission set up 2,143 polling stations for the 2020 presidential elections.

Eight electoral contestants are in the race, of which political parties nominated seven, and the current president of Moldova participates independently, supported by the Socialists’ Party. In order to be declared valid, at least 1/3 of the number of voters registered in the electoral lists must participate in the election.

More than one million voters or 36.35% of those registered in the electoral lists had come to the polling stations by 17:00 (EET). The number of those who voted already is much lower compared to the 2016 presidential elections voters’ number.

Mobilization of the Moldovan Diaspora

Data from the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) show that by 16.00 more than 82,000 voters had cast their votes abroad- a number greater than the 2016’s representation of voters in the first round of the presidential election. For comparison, on October 30, 2016, 67,205 voters turned out to vote in the polling stations abroad.
