Pavel Postica: In state of Israel and in Corjova village, election could be held for two days

In the state of Israel and in Corjova village, the presidential election and the national referendum could be held two consecutive days, on Saturday and Sunday, said the deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission Pavel Postica. According to him, in Israel and in Corjova the people may not be able to exercise their right to vote during one day. Also, in the two states that are at war, Ukraine and Russia, polling stations will be established in Odessa, Kiev and Moscow, IPN reports.

According to the Electoral Code, in exceptional situations, the voting process can be organized for two consecutive days, on Saturday and Sunday. The electoral authority will take such a decision 25 days before election day. The CEC deputy chairman said that exceptional situations can occur in the state of Israel and in Corjova.

“For example, Israel. Sunday is a working day there. All our citizens who live in Israel work on Sundays. They are at work. They have the possibility to go and vote only after 5-6 p.m. until 9 p.m., when polling stations close. Is it reasonable to open polling stations in Israel on Saturdays as well? Saturday is officially a nonworking day. We have another situation in the country, in Corjova. For the inhabitants of Corjova, there was made only one attempt to establish a polling station in the locality. They vote in the neighboring village, a few kilometers away. If we cannot establish a polling station in a locality, it is reasonable to allow voting for two days to ensure the citizens have the opportunity to go and vote,” Pavel Postica stated in the talk show “Resumé” on RliveTV.

Pavel Postica said that in the two states that are at war, Ukraine and the Russian Federation, polling stations will be established at Moldova’s embassies in Moscow and Kiev and at Moldova’s consular office in Odessa. In order to open additional polling stations, the consent of the host country is required.

“In the Russian Federation and Ukraine, polling stations will certainly be established. But their number and size will be decided later. In Ukraine, we are obliged to establish polling stations in Kiev and Odessa, because we have a diplomatic mission and consulate there. In Moscow, we also have a diplomatic mission. So, we are obliged by law to establish a polling station. As for stations outside the diplomatic missions, we will have to see. What matters here is what the host country will say. If the Russian Federation says that it does not allow us to open polling stations, it means that we will not open other polling stations,” said the deputy chairman of the Central Election Commission.

The presidential election in Moldova will be held on October 20, simultaneously with a national constitutional referendum. A sum of 251 million lei was allocated from the state budget for organizing the presidential election. Another 37 million lei is to be spent on the organization of the referendum.
