Over 100 international observers to take part in Peru’s Oct. 3 elections

More than 100 international observers will take part in Peru’s municipal and regional elections scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 3, daily El Comercio reported.

About 70 of the observers are representatives from the Washington D.C.-based Organization of American States (OAS). The delegation from the OAS is being led by Paraguay’s ex-Foreign Affairs Minister Miguel Abdon. The representatives will be sent to polling stations around the country on Oct. 1.

Peru’s National Election Board, JNE, is providing the credentials for the observers and facilitating their entrance into polling stations and electoral offices, the board’s director of international relations and cooperation, Maria del Pilar Valderrama-Dortrait, said.

Abdon has said he expects the elections to be transparent. “We are hoping that the elections are uneventful, peaceful and transparent,” daily Correo reported Abdon saying.

“We don’t judge elections, we observe the electoral process and after create our report for the OAS, the permanent council of ministers.”
