The Opposition will condition any Parliamentary activity with the advancement of the Electoral Reform.
The Democratic Party Chairman held a meeting today with his allies. After the meeting, he declared that they have a unified stance for an electoral platform, which according to him will guarantee standards in the June 18th Parliamentary elections.
The Democratic Party Chairman added that the electoral process is at risk, as the Prime Minister has mobilized his gangs.
In a statement he said, “We confirm our unified stance for the upcoming elections, which is that criminals cannot decide the elections but the citizens must. The Opposition’s platform is for free and honest elections. The upcoming elections are at risk by criminals. Electronic voting solves the vote buying problem. We agreed on a platform for free elections. We re-confirm electronic voting and counting. We re-confirm Party funding restrictions of expenditures during the campaign, and equality in media access. There is no more time. So the Opposition will condition any further movement with the platform for Electoral Reform”.
