20 parties have registered in the current election campaign. Many people say it is a too big number for such a small country as Moldova. At the same time, much more parties could take part in the election campaign.

Chisinau, February 13 ( INFOTAG ). Representatives of non-governmental organizations, analysts, journalists and Secretary of the Central Election Commission (CEC), who did not come, were invited.

Mitul recalled that at the last elections the Transnistrian militia intimidated residents of the Transnistrian region and took pictures of those, who dared to vote. Afterwards these persons were dismissed under various pretexts.

Vice-Chairman of the Dubasari raion Maria Jumbei said that at the parliamentary elections in 2005 more than 1000 citizens were prevented from voting. When the elections were being held in Russia, 18 polling stations were opened in Dubasari and nobody was impeded to vote.

ADEPT Association Executive Director Igor Botan considers that the Central Election Commission (CEC) must open polling stations on the territory of Transnistria and cooperate with the local authorities in this connection.

"More than 400 thousand voters live in Transnistria and one polling stations covers from 50 to 3000 voters. That is why, the CEC must open a sufficient number of polling stations for them or, if it is possible, to provide the voters with transport to go the right Nistru bank", Botan underlined.
