Moldovans from the diaspora want to vote by post
The citizens of the Republic of Moldova who settled abroad want to vote by post. The initiative comes from a group of Moldovans, who initiated an online petition addressed to the Government of the Republic of Moldova. According to official data, there are over 800 thousand Moldovans abroad. Postal voting would imply completing a form within an online platform, reports Moldova 1 TV.
The petitioners believe that the postal voting will make the electoral process more organized, simple and equitable for all citizens of the Republic of Moldova. On July 31, the Parliament has voted in the second reading to annul the mixed electoral system.
The document provides for several changes such as the cancellation of the day of silence, and the permission for Moldovans from abroad to vote on the basis of passport, identity card and military booklet, as well as expired documents.
