Monitoring of the Presidential Election 2004

  

The PVT program that was conducted by MOST monitored the turnout of voters during the Election day, as well as the gained votes by each candidate after the counting.

  MOST’s recommendation is to focus on the improvement of the election process quality, through education of the election bodies and the electorate. In the same way it is important to emphasize the necessity of an effective legal regulation which would minimize the possible violations of the election process.
