“The Law is silent on the requirement for pluralism and diversity in the composition of the OPA. 

The SCA acknowledges that the OPA reports that its composition is reflective of these principles. However, as a good practice, the SCA is of the view that the enabling law of an NHRI should include a requirement to ensure pluralism and diversity, as this facilitates its appreciation of, and capacity to engage on, all human rights issues affecting the society in which it operates. In addition, it promotes the accessibility of the NHRI for all people in Republic of Moldova. 

The SCA encourages the OPA to advocate for the inclusion in its enabling law of a requirement to ensure that its composition is broadly reflective of all of the segments of Moldovan society.”
