PCRM calls on nation
Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova issued an “Address to the nation”, whereby it criticises the current governance, which cancels all social guarantees, destroys all economic and democratic achievements of previous years, subjects to a new revision the territorial-administrative structure of Moldova, openly and cynically tramples the Supreme Law — the Constitution of the Republic of Moldova. The government is accused that under the pretext of “decentralization” it wants to liquidate more than 30% of mayoralties and to return to Romanian type counties. PCRM says in local elections it will protect every district, every village, every school, every house of culture, human dignity and rights of every citizen. (Source: PCRM)

Registration of several independents was rejected in Balti
Balti Constituency Electoral Council refused to register three independent candidates for the municipal council: Serghei Iordan, Niholae Spînu and Alexandru Tureac. The reason for refusal was about the mistakes and inaccuracies in the submitted subscription lists. According to representatives of the electoral body, the lists include people who are abroad, residing in other localities, non-existing numbers of identity documents. These candidates consider that the decision of electoral authority is biased and was adopted so as to prevent appealing them in court or collecting new signatures. (Source: СP Balti, esp.md)
