Diaspora to vote only in the presidential elections


The State Election Commission (SEC) has received 2954 applications from diaspora community members registering to vote in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.

Of them, 2610 have been accepted, 342 have been rejected and two are yet to be processed. Given that the threshold for voting in the parliamentary election of 5,355 registered voters wasn’t met, diaspora community members will only be able to vote for President in the state’s diplomatic missions abroad.

Voting for President on April 24 and for in the May 8 runoff, based on the applications, will be organized in 24 countries. Only 10 voters needed to register so a presidential vote could be organized abroad.

To organize voting for the parliamentary elections, at least 5,355 voters needed to register in all 52 consular missions or diplomatic offices abroad.
