The team of the Liberal Party was to start running in electoral campaign on April 20, but the event was postponed because the Chisinau Constituency Electoral Council (CECC) did not include on the agenda of the meeting the registration of candidates for municipal councillors. In opinion of the general mayor of municipality, Dorin Chirtoaca, CECC decision is “ungrounded and unclear; such things happen only upon a political order”. In turn, Iulian Balan, CECC chairman states that the agenda did not include also the registration of competitors for the City Council because the council members have failed to examine all files and because there are “fewer members than it should be; many persons appointed by various parties avoid to fulfil the duties”.
