Moldova to open 13 polling stations for Romanian presidential elections

On the whole, the Romanian Government is preparing to open 294 polling stations abroad – one hundred more than at the previous elections.

For the Romanian presidential elections of November 22, the Republic of Moldova will open 13 polling stations in its territory. Until now, this republic used to permit the organization of only two stations – in the Romanian Embassy and Romanian consular office in Chisinau.

Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat stated over the ProTV-Chisinau channel that the Moldovan Government has responded positively to the request of the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to open more polling facilities, namely 4 in Chisinau and the rest nine in other populated areas, and the Moldovan Government met that request.

The said nine stations will be organized in Orhei, Nisporeni, Ungheni, Balti, Cahul, Giurgiulesti, Anenii Noi, Causeni, and Soroca.

On the whole, the Romanian Government is preparing to open 294 polling stations abroad – one hundred more than at the previous elections.

On Thursday, Premier Vlad Filat had a telephone talk with Romanian President Traian Basescu, and spoke out for a soonest-possible signing of an Agreement on minor trans-border traffic between the two countries and, according to the governmental press service, he received the Romanian side’s support.

The previous Communist authorities thought that prior to singing all other agreements, the two countries must first conclude a Basic Political Treaty and a Border Treaty.
