MOSCOW, May 04. /ITAR-TASS/. A delegation from the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) begins on Sunday monitoring the parliamentary election in the Republic of South Africa slated for May 7.
“The delegation is headed by CEC Secretary Nikolai Konkin,” the CEC press service told Itar-Tass adding that “the visit takes place upon an invitation from the Election Commission of the Republic of South Africa and will last until May 10.”
“During the visit the secretary of the Russian CEC will meet with colleagues from the South African Election Commission and will hand them a memorandum on the mutual understanding concerning cooperation issues in the sphere of elections,” the press service said.
This week delegations from the Russian CEC monitored presidential elections in Iraq and in Panama.
Last week, Russia’s CEC head Vladimir Churov told journalists that the commission was likely to send its delegation to monitor the second round of the presidential elections in Afghanistan.
Russia’s CEC representatives monitored the first round of the presidential elections in Afghanistan, held on April 5, and highly evaluated efforts of the Afghan authorities concerning security provision during the polls.
