The Central Electoral Commission is obliged to open more than 190 polling stations abroad for the upcoming parliamentary elections after the Supreme Court of Justice maintained the Court of Appeal’s decision. The Electoral Commission meets today with Ministry of Foreign Affairs representatives to approve another decision.

The Supreme Court of Justice maintained the decision of the Chișinău Court of Appeal to oblige the Central Electoral Commission to open more than 190 polling stations abroad in the upcoming snap elections. The Central Electoral Commission is to meet today, June 23, with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs representatives to approve another decision,

The Central Electoral Commission went to the Supreme Court of Justice after the Court of Appeal annulled their decision to open only 146 polling stations abroad and obliged the institution to increase them to at least 190 as it was recommended by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The decision came after seven days in which the case was examined at the Chișinău Court of Appeal. Initially, the Central Electoral Commission approved the opening of 139 polling stations abroad. After two days of protests in front of the institution, the decision was changed, the number of polling stations being increased by seven. Even so, the decision of the Central Electoral Commission was challenged in court.
