MAE organizes six polling stations in operations theatres

The Romanian servicemen in the operations theatres in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo will be able to cast their votes in the europarliamentary elections on June 7 at six polling stations, organized by the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE).

Thus, in Afghanistan they will open three polling stations in Kabul, Kandahar and Zabul, in Kosovo, two polling stations in the cities of Pec (west of the province) and Pristina, and one polling station in Iraq, at Tallil.

In the previous elections, on November 30, 2008, the servicemen were not able to vote because, in keeping with the legislation on the single vote parliamentary elections, it was only the persons that had the abode or the residence in the country in which they were at the moment of voting that were allowed to cast their votes.

In the elections for the European Parliament the Romanian citizens will also be able to vote even if they are temporarily abroad.

Romania has 964 servicemen in Afghanistan, another 368 in Iraq and 149 in Kosovo. In all the Romanians outside Romania’s borders will be able to vote in 190 polling stations organized in 193 countries.
