Same number of out-of country polling stations, with some of address changes

A confirmed number of 139 polling stations will be established abroad for the November 15 runoff vote. According to the authorities, to avoid crowdedness, the polling stations in a number of European cities will be relocated. Two polling stations will have a special working program. The polling station in Strasbourg will be open between 7am and 8pm, while the polling station in Baku will work between 7am and 6pm. The information was presented in a news conference on November 13, IPN reports.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration Aureliu Ciocoi underlined the necessity of obeying the requirements imposed in the state of residence. The shortcomings identified in the first round of voting, such as the large number of voters, of over 149,000, made them take a number of measures. To fluidize voting and to ensure the safety measures are obeyed, some of the polling stations that witnessed crowdedness were transferred. These are the polling stations in Frankfurt, Munich, Milan, Parma, Verona, Bologna, London, Tel Aviv. The new addresses can be found on the websites of embassies and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Central Election Commission president Dorin Cimil said the number of ballots for the runoff was increased by over 115,000. In accordance with the legislation, a polling station can get at most 5,000 ballots. Therefore, the people are asked to inform themselves about the situation at polling stations before heading for them and about the rules imposed by the host country and to respect them fully.

Eugeniu Revenco, secretary general at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration, said the voters in some of the countries must possess particular declarations showing the purpose of travel. The ballot can be cast with the passport of the citizen of the Republic of Moldova, the identity card of the citizen of the Republic of Moldova or the sailor’s permit.

Moldova’s Ambassador to Germany Oleg Serebrian through videoconferencing said they expect the number of voters in the runoff to be higher than in the first round of voting and they thus doubled the number of members of electoral bureaus and extended the areas. There are only six polling stations for a large number of voters and they fear the number of ballots can be insufficient.

Moldova’s Ambassador to the UK Angela Ponomaryov noted that the Moldovans are recommended to take a travel confirmation with them to the polling station so as to show where they go if they are stopped on the street.

Moldova’s Ambassador to Italy Anatolie Urecheanu said the Moldovans who will go to vote this Sunday must have on them a standard self-certification form with personal data and with the indication “voto Elezioni Presidenziali Moldova-15 novembre” (vote in presidential elections Moldova-November 15) in the division “situazione di necesita”.

In France, the Moldovans going to polling stations must also have two documents – travel attestation and a letter of conformation from Moldova’s Embassy in France.
