Preliminary results: Dodon won by a 72,000 vote margin

Published

on

The Central Electoral Comision of Moldova published the preliminary results of the presidential election. According to the data, 835,080 citizens voted for Dodon, while 762,602 voted for Maia Sandu. The difference in votes is 72,478.

According to some Sandu supporters, the elections were rigged in favor of the socialist candidate. The insufficient amount of ballot papers abroad is seen as an attempt to minimize the amount of votes in European cities, where Sandu is generally positioned to get more votes than Dodon.

Protesters are expected to gather in the central square of Chișinău at 1 PM today. They will demand the annulment of the results and repeat elections.

Maia Sandu to present proof of mass frauds at recent Presidential elections to the Constitutional Court

Published

on

The leader of the Action and Solidarity Party and former Moldova Presidential candidate, Maia Sandu, declared that she would go to the Constitutional Court to present all the proof and arguments about the frauds committed at the Presidential elections on November 13th.

Sandu took this decision after the Supreme Court of Justice ruled on November 30th that the examination of violations on Constitution and Electoral Code during the Presidential elections does not belong to regular courts.

“During this campaign, numerous electoral violations were committed and admitted, doubting the principle of free and correct elections. Since the institutions we addressed until now refrained from analyzing the relevant proof, we will go to the Constitutional Court where we will present, with arguments and proof, all the committed frauds during the Presidential elections that, without any doubt, influenced the final results and led to the “victory” of the candidate of the regime”, posted Sandu on her Facebook page.

Published

on

On November 22nd, the Foreign Minister of Moldova, Andrei Galbur, came up with a statement, regretting that several citizens living abroad could not exercise their voting rights in the second round of Presidential elections.

Galbur declared that the Minister he leads acted in accordance with the existent legal norms, and the insufficient number of voting bulletins and voting centers was a problem of the system, not belonging to a person or institution.
He specified that the Government approved the number of voting centers (100) outside Moldova, still in a higher amount than in 2014.

“The Ministry had to manage 100 voting centers. The Ministry profoundly regrets that in several voting stations not all citizens could exercise their voting right. The institution did everything possible in the legal framework.
In the case when more than 3000 people show up to the polling station, the Electoral Code doesn’t provide the possibility to deliver more ballots. The legislation prohibits the transmission of a higher number of bulletins. The Ministry could not get them from the Electoral Commission, even if it asked for them. The occurred problems do not belong to the activity of any official or Ministry, but because of the fact that legislation did not predict this situation”
, told Galbur.

So far, over 3000 complaints were sent by the Moldovan diaspora to the Central Electoral Commission. Some 143 Moldovans living abroad even sued the state of Moldova in court for violation of voting rights.
