Statement by the Head of OSCE PA observers in the United States

WASHINGTON, 8 November 2016 – The Head of the observer mission deployed by the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly to the 8 November General Elections in the United States, Greek parliamentarian Makis Voridis, today released the following message:

“I was informed that someone affiliated with our team had expressed on Twitter his personal political preference for a candidate in the elections we are observing. This is in clear contravention of our observer code of conduct. We take our independence very seriously. As a result, I have dismissed him and he will no longer be observing as a part of our mission.”
