Chisinau, 16 May /MOLDPRES/ - The People’s Assembly (local parliament) of the Autonomous Territorial Unit Gagauz-Yeri  (APG), after at a today’s extraordinary meeting it had approved the results of the elections from 14 May, ruled to summon a congress, with the participation of the regional lawmakers from all legislative periods, central, regional and local authorities, accredited in Moldova, in order to discuss the situation in the autonomy, emerged in the context of the elections of bashkan from 14 May.      

The APG MPs showed discontent with the today’s actions of the National Anticorruption Centre, who along with the National Investigation Inspectorate, under the leadership of the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office, raised the lists of electors from the Comrat Court. According to CNA, the reason for this action represents the reasonable suspicion as to the inclusion in electoral lists of the dead people and who are abroad and the voting on their behalf. Also today, the Central Electoral Commission informed that it had initiated eight contraventional suits on deeds of illegal financing of electoral contenders, who received donations from private people, with the exceeding of the maximal ceiling established by the law, at the elections held at the Autonomous Territorial Unit of Gagauzia.      

Following these actions, a rally started in Comrat, with the participation of dozens of citizens and regional decision-makers, who protested against the decision of the government and the central authorities.

About 55 per cent of the voters from UTA Gagauz-Yeri on 14 May cast their ballots at the elections of the autonomy’s governor and according to data unveiled by the Comrat electoral commission today, the ballot was won by the candidate of the Shor Party, Evghenia Gutul.

According to the region’s electoral authority, at the runoff of the polls, the electoral confrontation was between Evghenia Gutul, for whom 27,367 electors voted or 52.36 per cent and Grigori Uzun, the representative of the Party of Socialists, who picked up 47.64 per cent of the suffrages, for whom 24,913 electors voted.     

The Comrat electoral commission says that some infringements were recorded at the 14 May ballot, but which cannot influence the result of the elections.

During 72 hours after the elections, the entire package of electoral acts should be submitted to the Comrat Court of Appeal, in order to verify the legitimacy of the ballot. Under the procedure, the Court’s ruling will be announced in ten days. For the moment, the lists of the electors from the Comrat Court are raised by CNA.
