Promo-Lex report: Political parties offer electoral gifts to citizens

Between 25 September and 15 October 2014, Promo-Lex observers identified several cases of electoral gifts from some electoral contestants that had already been registered into the race for the parliamentary elections of 30 November 2014. According to Promo-Lex, four political parties — PL, PLDM, PSRM and PDM — spent money on electoral gifts in nine of the country’s regions, both before and after they were registered for the electoral race. Some of these cases occurred in the regions of Ialoveni and Drochia, where certain electoral contestants offered money (110–120 lei) and foodstuffs. At the same time, experts noticed cases when administrative resources were used, and some electoral contestants presented the government’s achievements as party achievements.
