Support to free and fair elections in 2005
September 2004 - July 2005
The project aimed at contributing to free and fair elections in the Republic of Moldova. The project seeks to contribute to free and fair elections in Moldova by facilitating communication and information exchanges between political parties, the electorate, NGOs and civil society, and mass-media, without seeking to influence the result of the election. Facilitation of information exchanges as well as monitoring of the parliamentary elections is done by means of www.elections2005.md web page.
The web page features electoral law, CEC resolutions on parliamentary elections, comprehensive data on each electoral contestant - platform, position on key issues, statements, declarations, press releases, electoral ads - analysis and commentaries, and monitoring reports. The web page also enables on-line debates on issues of public interest and allows users to ask election related questions. Those activities would ultimately enable Moldovan voters to make an informed choice in elections. The page also covered elections to Chisinau mayoralty of July 2005. The project was funded by the British Embassy to Chisinau.
