No longer recruiting long-term observers for the State Duma Election in the Russian Federation

July 08th, 2021

Important: Please note

WFD issued this call for long-term observers (LTOs) to take part in the OSCE election observation mission to the upcoming State Duma elections in Russia. That mission has now been cancelled by the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODHIR) and its Parliamentary Assembly. The ODIHR has said that “The OSCE will not be able to send observers for the upcoming elections to the Duma due to limitations imposed by Russian Federation authorities on the election observation.” Therefore, we will no longer be recruiting or deploying observers for this mission.


Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) is recruiting long-term observers (LTOs) to be seconded to the OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation Mission for the State Duma Election in the Russian Federation.  The election dates run from the 17th to the 19th September 2021. Expected deployment dates for the role are the 16th August to the 25th September; applicants must be available for this entire period to be considered.  Additionally, WFD intends to further recruit short-term observes, when requested by OSCE/ODIHR
