Polling stations for voting in the presidential elections in Moldova have opened throughout the country, RIA Novosti reports.
The turnout threshold in the first round is 33.3%.
There are more than two thousand polling stations in Moldova. Due to the threat of a pandemic, protective masks are issued to all voters. About 1,900 local and 309 international observers will observe the elections in the country.
Earlier it was reported that, according to forecasts, a second round of presidential elections is possible in Moldova. Dodon and Sandu previously fought in the second round of the 2016 presidential election. Then Igor Dodon won. The difference between the rivals was just over 4% of the votes.
