The President of the Parliament, Igor Grosu, announced that tomorrow, August 13th, will be discussed the process of appointing the new members of the Central Electoral Commission.

“In Friday’s meeting, we will launch the process of appointing the new members of the Central Electoral Commission, so that the parties and society have enough time. The parties should come up with proposals, make them public, have a discussion in the public space as well.”

On August 2, the member organizations of the Civic Coalition for Free and Fair Elections appealed to the Parliament to appoint in legal terms the new Central Electoral Commission member on criteria of professionalism, integrity, meritocracy, but not based on political loyalty, to organize a public process of the appointment and to ensure equal representation of women and men.

“I would like people who have experience in managing the electoral processes and who known the kitchen from the Central Electoral Commission,” the President of the Parliament also stated.

The mandate of the current Central Electoral Commission members expired this June, when the electoral campaign for the parliaments of July 11 was taking place in Moldova. According to the Electoral Code, if the mandate of the Central Electoral Commission expires during the electoral period, it is extended until the end of elections and the subsequent members are elected in a maximum of 90 days.

On July 16, 2019, the Parliament appointed and confirmed three new members of the Central Electoral Commission: Maxim Lebedinschi, one of Igor Dodon’s advisers, Dumitru Pavel, Andrei Năstase’s lawyer, and Dorin Cimil, lawyer and associate professor.

The Central Electoral Commission consists of 9 members. One member is appointed by the President of Moldova, and the other 8 – by the Parliament, respecting the proportional representatives of the majority and the opposition.
