Parliamentary Elections in Armenia 2018
Following an official invitation from the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Armenia, European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations (ENEMO) deployed an Election Observation Mission (EOM) for the 9 December 2018 early parliamentary elections.
This is the first observation mission of the European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations in Armenia. ENEMO started its work at the beginning of November 2018 with the arrival of the Core Team to Yerevan. The mission is composed of six Core Team members, eight long-term observers and 50 short-term observers. ENEMO’s long-term observers (LTOs) started their observations on 16th November. The LTO teams have worked out of Yerevan, Ijevan, Gyumri and Kapan. On E-day, ENEMO observers monitored the opening of 30 PECs, voting in over 310 PECs and the closing of 30 PECs. In addition, through video observation, ENEMO’s video observers followed procedure in 283 PECs.
This project was funded by the European Union and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
