Kimmo Kiljunen, vice-president of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, said on 18 June that the OSCE was ready to help organize parliamentary elections in the breakaway region of Transdniester in the autumn of 2005. Speaking in Chisinau Kiljunen added that the problem of whether the elections are to be held under Moldovan or the Transdniester legislation should be resolved in talks between Chisinau and Tiraspol. The Moldovan Parliament adopted a document on 10 June calling for the Transdniester elections to be held in line with the Moldovan Constitution. The separatist legislature in Tiraspol on 17 June harshly criticized the document, saying its implementation would automatically deny voting rights to "hundreds of thousands" of Transdniester residents who do not possess Moldovan citizenship.
