WASHINGTONU.S. Department of State today released the following statement:

The United States is closely monitoring the ongoing court proceedings to invalidate the results of the June 3 mayoral elections in Chisinau, Moldova.  The sanctity of elections are the foundation of any democracy and must comply with international norms.  We expect the Moldovan government to guarantee a transparent court process without political interference.  If any irregularities are found, we urge all parties to address them in a way that respects the rule of law and democratic principles of government, including the will of the people as expressed through elections.
