COD Accredited For Lithuanian Presidential Elections

Kyiv, Ukraine – The Committee for Open Democracy (COD) was accredited this week by the Lithuanian Central Electoral Commission to observe the country’s presidential elections which also includes a referendum on allowing multiple citizenships.  The elections are scheduled for Sunday, May 12th and this will be the 28th observation mission by COD.

“The Baltic countries have always been leaders in Eastern Europe when it comes to administering good elections.  We will observe this election to monitor best practices and, of course, show international support for the electoral process. This marks our second observation mission in Lithuania, and it will be interesting to compare and contrast the differences between 2015 and now,” said Brian Mefford, Executive Director of COD.  He added, "We will have a small team arriving a few days before the voting day to talk with the election commissions, parties, and candidates. Lithuania has already provided observers for COD monitoring missions and we are grateful to the Central Election Commission of Lithuania as well as our local partners for the cooperation”.

Committee for Open Democracy is a US-based, not-for-profit organization that has observed international elections in 9 countries, including Albania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Slovenia, the United Kingdom, and Ukraine.
