The president of the Permanent Electoral Authority (AEP), Ana Maria Patru will take over the leadership of the Association of World Election Bodies (A-WEB) as of 2017, according to a decision of the association’s general assembly. The Association rejoins electoral management bodies from over 100 countries on five continents, AEP informed.

According to the A-WEB statute, the third general assembly will take place in Romania in 2017, when Ana Maria Patru is expected to take over the presidency of the international body. Romania also hosted the annual conference of the European Association of Electoral Officials last year, whose presidency was held by Patru during a year.

“In 2017 over 400 representatives of the electoral management bodies from five continents (Europe, South America, Asia, Africa and Oceania will come to Romania. It will be an important electoral summit that will provide us with a large international visibility,” Ana Maria Patru told a press release.

Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) hailed the taking-over.

“I welcome this important achievement of the AEP chairwoman (…) This outcome proves that AEP efficiently extended its contact network and shows the Authority’s involvement in the field of the international electoral assistance. For that matter, MAE and AEP enhanced their cooperation this year by signing a Cooperation Protocol in July, through which we’ll be able to support AEP efforts in this regard,” FM Bogdan Aurescu said.
