Written Answers — Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade: Election Monitoring Missions (10 Dec 2019)

Ciarán Cannon: I propose to take Questions Nos. 106 and 124 together. The EU and the OSCE-ODHIR regularly issue calls for the nomination of observers to participate in the election missions organised under their auspices.
