New Moldovan election law is partly unconstitutional, study shows

A new study by Moldovan EPDE member Promo-Lex shows that the recently approved mixed-member electoral system will have negative consequences on democracy and civil society in that country. The study argues the provision stipulating that a person has to have a domicile in order to exercise his/her right to vote in a single-member constituency is unconstitutional, discriminatory, and confining, because it limits the right to vote for about 155,683 of voters with no domicile or residence—nearly 5% of all registered voters.

Promo-Lex also issued a report showing that Moldovan political parties have been making progress in submitting financial statements, but are still hiding their actual expenses.
