The European Union deployed an Election Expert Mission (EU EEM) to analyse and report on the electoral situation of the Atlantic coast regional elections in the elections held on 7 March 2010.

While EU EEMs analyse all frameworks and phases of the electoral cycle, having regards to the relevant recognised international standard, they are of a technical nature. They do not conduct direct observation.

EEMs are not headed by political figure and do not deliver public statements or press releases. They provide a technical document for the EU institutions and Member States that reports on the country’s specific electoral situation.
