The deputies of the People’s Assembly of Gagauzia didn’t manage to agree the date of elections after holding long debates on February 9. The matter was put on the agenda after the deputies from Comrat earlier annulled the own decision concerning the election date, IPN reports.
In today’s meeting, it was proposed that the elections to the People’s Assembly should be held on April 11. But a large part of the deputies said the election date can be set only after the local budget of Gagauzia for 2021 is adopted. Only 11 deputies of the 28 attending voted in favor of the date of April 11. The rest either abstained or voted against.
The People’s Assembly managed yet to confirm three candidates as members of the Central Election Commission of Comrat of the four proposed. One candidate was rejected. This way, eight of the nine members of the Commission have been appointed.
On January 20, 2021, it was four years of the convening of the first meeting of the People’s Assembly of Gagauzia after the elections of November 2016. The People’s Assembly set the elections for April 4 this year, but recently the deputies annulled their own decision.
