After two weeks of court proceedings and eight hours of consultations between members of the Central Electoral Commission and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Electoral Commission decided to open 150 polling stations abroad instead of 190 as previously requested.

In a comment for ZdG, Dorin Cimil, the president of the Electoral Commission, mentioned that the 150 polling stations “were approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.”

“Based on the estimated expenditure for the organization of the early parliamentary elections of July 11, 2021, we sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to approve 150 polling stations. In this context, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that they fulfilled the conditions to obtain the agreement of the competent authorities of foreign states. The Ministry also confirmed the possibility of ensuring the logistical part of the voting process. As a result, the list of polling stations abroad for the early parliamentary elections of July 11, 2021, was approved with the unanimous vote of the members of the Commission and the Electoral Council of the constituency for the polling stations,” the Central Electoral Commission communiqué states.

The Central Electoral Commission was 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.
