The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) is deploying a Special Election Assessment Mission (SEAM) in Serbia, planning to commence its work on June 5.
The deadline for applying for vacancies at the SEAM mission expired on June 1.
The tentative plan for the Mission is to start working in Belgrade on June 5.
In its assessment of election monitoring activities the ODIHIR says that the organization has taken into account its own report from November 2019 on preparations for the election in Serbia and "concerns expressed by interested parties."
Among other things, those included "confidence-related issues as to the implementation of procedures on the Election Day, the accuracy of voter registration lists, campaigns in terms of possible intimidation of voters and abuse of government resources," the organization said.
