CHISINAU, November 21. /TASS/. Maia Sandu, the losing pro-European candidate for Moldovan president, on Monday filed a suit against the country’s Central Election Commission (CEC) and the foreign ministry over their failure to ensure participation of Moldovan labor migrants in the runoff voting.
She claims that the actions of Central Election Commission Chairperson Alina Russu and Foreign Minister Andrei Galbur deprived hundreds of Moldovan labor migrants of a possibility to cast their votes at the second round of presidential polls. "Money transfers from our citizens living abroad compensate for the state’s failures. But those who represent it decided that these people do not deserve to realize their right to vote," Sandu wrote on her Facebook account.
Earlier she promised to challenge the election results as the country’s state institutions had failed to ensure free expression of will.
Last week, Moldova’s Central Election Commission endorsed official results of the presidential elections in the country. Igor Dodon, the leader of the Moldovan Party of Socialists advocating closer relations with Russia, who scored 52.18% of the vote at the runoff polling on November 13, was elected Moldovan president. Sandu won support of 47.82% of voters.
Sandu tried to challenge the election results with the Constitutional Court which turned down her motion, saying issues of election organization are in sole competence of courts of general jurisdiction.
