44% turnout in Moldovan local elections

44% of the Moldovan voters went to the polls in local elections on June 3 to elect some 900 mayors and 12,000 local councilors. As in previous elections, voting did not take place in Moldova's breakaway region of Transdniester, which de facto has not been under the control of the Moldovan authorities since 1992. In Chisinau, the post of mayor will be disputed in a runoff on June 17 between the Communist candidate Veaceslav Iordan and the liberal Dorin Chirtoaca. The elections were monitored by 185 observers fielded over the whole country by OSCE.
