Following an invitation from the Central Election Commission of Moldova, the European Network of Election Monitoring Organizations (ENEMO) deployed an International Election Observation Mission (IEOM) to observe the Parliamentary Elections that were held on 24 February 2019 in the Republic of Moldova. The Mission was composed of a Core Team of eight international experts, based in Chisinau, and ten long-term observers, deployed throughout the country in five multinational teams of two. The EOM was deployed since the beginning of the election period and stayed in the country up to one month after Election Day.
The EOM monitored and assessed the overall environment in which elections were held, the performance of election management bodies (EMBs), candidates’ registration, voters’ registration, the election campaign, election related disputes and their resolution, and other crucial aspects of the process. The EOM did not engage additional short-term observers. Eight teams of observers, in teams of two, were formed from its members to observe the voting, conduct of precinct election bureaus (PEBs), tabulation of results, conduct of Constituency electoral councils’ (CoECs), and the environment in and around polling stations (PS) on Election Day. The EOM observed a total of 112 polling stations in Moldova, as well as three polling stations established in Ukraine for Moldovan voters residing abroad.
