Parliamentary Elections in Serbia 2020
Type of election: Parliamentary election
Type of mission: Expert election observation mission (EEOM)
Head of mission: Zlatko Vujovic
Deputy head of mission: Cornelia Calin
On 1 June 2020, the European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations (ENEMO) deployed an International Election Observation Mission (IEOM) to Serbia to observe the Parliamentary Elections of 21 June 2020.
ENEMO deployed a total of 6 Core Team experts based in Belgrade. The Mission was headed by Dr. Zlatko Vujovic. The IEOM’s scope is limited in scale, and the IEOM did not engage additional long-term or short-term observers and, as a result, did not conduct a comprehensive observation of the opening, voting, counting and tabulation process on Election Day. However, the mission provided information on the preparation and conduct of the elections and observed at a few selected polling stations on the day of voting.
Until 21 June, the ENEMO CT experts conducted 36 meetings, of which three were with election management bodies, seven with political parties, 12 with state officials, two with media and 12 with domestic civil society organizations.
The mission has been monitoring and assessing the overall political and electoral environment, respect for the rights to elect and stand for election, the conduct of election management bodies, campaigning, gender equity, traditional and social media, electoral dispute resolutions and other crucial aspects of the process, based on international standards for democratic elections and the Serbian legal framework.
ENEMO’s international observation mission for Serbian Parliamentary Elections 2020 is financially supported by National Endowment for Democracy (NED).
ENEMO IEOM to Serbia is organizing a press conference on Monday June 22nd 2020 to present Statement of Preliminary Findings and Conclusions
