Observatörer bevakar svenska valet: För första gången kommer observatörer från Organisationen för samarbete och säkerhet i Europa, OSSE, (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, OSCE) till Sverige för att se till att valet går rätt till, rapporterar Ekot.

När en liknande utvärdering gjordes inför årets val kom man fram till att man kommer att skicka två personer. OSSE ska bland annat titta närmare på hur valkampanjer finansieras.
