Head of mission: Pierre Peytier

Long-term observers: 10
On 01 February, the European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations (ENEMO), following official accreditation by the Central Election Commission of Serbia, deployed an International Election Observation Mission (IEOM) to Serbia to observe the 3 April 2022 Presidential and Early Parliamentary Elections.
ENEMO deployed six Core Team experts, of whom five experts were based in Belgrade. The Mission was headed by Mr. Pierre Peytier. The IEOM additionally deployed 10 Long-Term Observers (LTOs) to observe electoral preparations. The mission did not engage additional short-term observers and, as a result, did not conduct a comprehensive observation of the voting and counting process on Election Day. However, the mission provided information on the preparation and conduct of the elections, and observed a number of selected polling stations on the day of voting.
The mission monitored and assessed the overall political and electoral environment, conduct of election management bodies, candidate registration, voter registration, campaigning, electoral dispute resolution and other crucial aspects of the process, based on international standards for democratic elections and the legal framework of Serbia.
In the course of observation, in order to obtain relevant information, Core Team experts conducted 374 meetings with different interlocutors such as election management bodies, political entities, state officials, media, embassies, international and domestic civil society organizations.
ENEMO’s international observation mission for the 03 April, 2022 Presidential and Early Parliamentary Elections in Serbia is financially supported by the National Endowment for Democracy, NED.
