Former AMN member deplores the situation of AIE

Alexandru Oleinic, one of founders of the former party “Alianţa Moldova Noastră” (Our Moldova Alliance), has declared that the number of undecided voters will double before the parliamentary elections and will exceed 60%, while all components of the Alliance for European Integration (AIE) works directly or indirectly in favor of communists. In the opinion of Oleinic the revenges among the leaders of AIE, compromising materials, accidental meetings, departure of key figures from various parties — all these actions bring votes to the PCRM. Oleinic also considers that shortly before parliamentary elections at least two new political parties will be launched around the key figures which have already left or will leave the political parties, where they carry out their activity. It is not excluded that the current situation will help them to attract some of the undecided voters and thus to become more successful political projects than the parties that began their activity when the AEI was created.
