In Moldova’s upcoming local elections, scheduled for the fall of 2023, only residents who have lived in their respective localities for a minimum of three months prior to the election date will be eligible to cast their votes. This new requirement was introduced in the recently enacted Election Code, which came into effect on January 1, 2023. According to the new code, only registered voters with a permanent or temporary residence permit in the localities are entitled to participate in the local elections. Additionally, a new condition stipulates that the registration must have been completed at least three months before the first round of voting, unlike the previous code which did not impose such a restriction. It is important to note that the forthcoming local elections in Moldova will include the election of the mayor and municipal council in Chisinau, adding to the significance of these elections. The adoption of the resolution for local elections rests with the Parliament. Stay informed about the latest developments and updates regarding Moldova’s upcoming local elections.
