Over 6,000 police officers ensure proper conduct of elections

As many as 6,630 police officers are making sure the snap parliamentary elections go smoothly, with over 4,000 of these being in charge of public order at polling stations and near them. According to the deputy head of the General Police Inspectorate Marin Maxian, special attention is devoted to the polling stations where Transnistrian voters will cast their ballots. The police call on the citizens not to become involved in provocations that can jeopardize the electoral process.

“There are groups of persons at the polling stations intended for voters from the Transnistrian region. Most of these persons have an observer’s permit. I want to remind them that the role of the observer is to monitor, not to intervene in the electoral process. Any attempt to endanger the electoral process and to engage citizens in illegal actions will be thwarted by the police,” stated Marin Maxian.

Last night, the police monitored the process of supplying the polling stations with ballots. All the polling stations were opened at 7am without incidents. In Dondușeni, a polling station was short of 100 ballots. At another polling station in Dondușeni, the number of ballots was by 21 lower than necessary, while at a polling station in Ialoveni, the number of ballots was by 51 lower.

During the election campaign, the police recorded a number of violations of the electoral legislation for which fines are imposed. “In the pre-electoral and electoral period, there were logged 135 violations and 37 of them were violations of the legislation concerning the placing of electoral posters, 10 referred to campaigning, while 26 to the legislation on assembly. More exactly, the decisions of the National Extraordinary Public Health Commission weren’t respected,” noted Marin Maxian.

Over 3 million voters are expected to take part in the snap parliamentary elections in Moldova today, July 11. Polling stations are open from 7am until 9pm. Campaigning until the closing of polling stations is banned.
