Elections / Chisinau / 2005 /

Results of the repeated elections of the Chisinau mayor as of November 27 and December 11, 2005

The Central Electoral Commission has scheduled new elections for November 27, 2005, as the new and repeat elections for the Chisinau mayor-general on July 10 and July 24, 2005 failed because less than one third of the number of voters included in the electoral lists attended them. The participation of the electorate in the scrutiny (22.42 percent) was below the turnout for validation of elections. Three electoral competitors (Eduard Musuc, Olga Nicolenco and Mircea Rusu) withdrew from the electoral race for the December 11, 2005 repeat scrutiny. The turnout of voters was 22.62 percent and this was not enough for validation of elections. Although the legislation in effect admits the possibility to convoke new elections, a new scrutiny is inopportune and the state authorities and main political actors have accepted a moratorium on this topic and they are expected to table amendments to the electoral legislation.
