Diaspora asks not to politicize trial against authorities

The Moldovans from the diaspora who sued the Government and the Central Election Commission over the violation of their right to vote in the presidential elections request not to politicize the case of the Diaspora versus the Republic of Moldova. In a press statement, the initiative group that filed a lawsuit says each citizen of the Republic of Moldova has the right to vote, which is enshrined in the Constitution, and the authorities are obliged to create conditions for this right to be exercised, IPN reports.

On November 21, a group of Moldovans who settled abroad sued the Government and the Central Election Commission because these didn’t ensure their right to vote in the November 13 presidential runoff. These citizens said they could not vote owing to the poor organization of elections and the using up of ballots.

“This case is important both for the Moldovan citizens who are abroad and for those who are on the country’s territory. It is a civil lawsuit to claim the right to vote. In the court of law, we complained only about the violation of the individual right to vote, regardless of the political option. In this case, no matter related to parties or interests of election runners is examined,” says the press statement.

The initiative group asked for support from all the citizens from the country and abroad and from the whole civil society of Moldova, specifying it is a trial of the citizens and for the citizens, regardless of the country of residence or political preferences of each of them. “That’s why it is very important to keep it outside the political sphere. We do not want this trial to be politicized. Consequently, we ask all the election runners and political representatives to refrain from actions in relation to this case,” reads the statement.
