The Christian Democratic People’s Party is worried about the possibility of fraud in elections

At the “Politica” talk show on the TV7 channel, Iurie Rosca, the first candidate on the list of the Christian Democratic People’s Party (PPCD), said that “there are several dangers in these elections, such as the high price for electoral advertising or use of administrative resources for the benefit of some parties. Our sources also say that the 3 parties that seized power in the country, through Plahotniuc, Filat and Ghimpu, are preparing to defraud the elections. Plahotniuc has already paid 4 million dollars to falsify the electronic voting system. They are also preparing to change records of proceedings, with the acceptance of corruptible persons. That is why I am appealing to all competent organizations to double the number of observers at polling stations.” // TV7

The “Renastere (Renaissance)” Party does not trust surveys

Vasile Tarlev, the first candidate on the list of the “Renastere (Renaissance)” Party (PR), mentioned at the “Politica” talk show on the TV7 channel that he does not trust surveys and that 99% of surveys are paid for. At the same time, he made an appeal to representatives of other parties to unite and form an electoral bloc. Tarlev believes that in this manner they might create a strong force and that elections would not be so easy to falsify. Also, Tarlev spoke about a number of violations committed during this electoral campaign. “A serious violation is the increase of the electoral threshold up to 6%. It is anti-democratic. The conduct of mass media also leaves much to be desired. The majority of the press is monopolized. The issue with Soviet passports — they deprived thousands of people of the right to vote. And the fact that they are proposing to change the passport is a maneuver and an electoral trick. Another violation is the inadequate amount of voting precincts,” the PR representative said. // TV7

Alexandru Oleinic: Moldova needs a complete renewal of the political class

At a press conference, the leader of the People’s Party of the Republic of Moldova (PPRM) Alexandru Oleinic said that Moldova needs to follow the example of elections in Ukraine and to completely renew its political class so as to have a new government for a new Moldova. According to him, in the Sunday elections Ukrainian citizens supported the country’s integrity, penalizing those who want a country divided in two. He also mentioned that the elections in the neighbor country are a lesson for Moldovan residents, who should vote for pro-European political forces that want a united country and not a country divided in two. // IPN

A group of Liberal Reformatory Party members joined the Democratic Party

Over 20 members of the municipal organization of the Liberal Reformatory Party (PLR) left the party and joined the Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM). According to them, this step has been a reaction to the appeal of the PDM leader Marian Lupu to smaller parties, encouraging them to join the democrats in order to avoid loss of votes and human resources. According to former members of the PLR, the democrats did not promise to them positions or places on the list, and their step will soon be followed by other PLR members. In their turn, representatives of the PLR leadership said that the withdrawal of the 20 members is not a loss for the party and that they were, in fact, the party’s passive members. // IPN

The Party of Communists no longer wants to denounce the Association Agreement with the EU

Vladimir Voronin, leader of the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova (PCRM), announced that his party will not denounce the Association Agreement with the European Union after the elections of 30 November. The politician said at the “Pahomi” show on Realitatea TV channel that the PCRM will insist on reviewing the document’s provisions that are contrary to the interests of the country. “The parts of this Association Agreement that had not been subjected to consultation and expert examination and are not suitable for Moldova need to be discussed further, in negotiations with European institutions. The entire Agreement doesn’t get in our way. Let’s keep working, doing the job!” Voronin said. //

Ion Hadarca: The Liberal Reformatory Party will not withdraw from the election race

The Liberal Reformatory Party (PLR) will not withdraw from the electoral race, no matter who the request came from. The declaration was made by the PLR leader Ion Hadarca, who also dismissed the insinuation that the PLR had been sold to some business people. “We wanted to go to elections in a bloc with the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova, and we discussed with Vlad Filat about this possibility, but he did not accept it for the reason of it being too late, although he accepted to include five persons on the PLDM list. The National Council of the PLR rejected this idea for the reason that the party’s identity would be lost,” Hadarca said. The liberal reformatory leader also said he regretted that the governing coalition parties did not go to elections in an electoral bloc, having put their personal interests above the country’s interest. Despite declaring that he wanted creation of an electoral bloc with the Democratic Party and the Liberal Democratic Party, Ion Hadarca accused them of being under a strong influence of oligarchs. // IPN

The National Liberal Party calls for consolidation of liberal forces

The National Liberal Party (PNL) issued an appeal to liberal political organizations in Moldova to join forces for the parliamentary elections of 30 November. The PNL calls the Moldovan right-wing parties for a dialogue, “at the twelfth hour”, so as to make the best decisions in order to not scatter the votes in the Romanian segment and to prevent the political situation of 2001, marked by the Communist return.

The Ecological Green Party criticizes the Liberal Reformatory Party for poor management of natural resources

The Ecological Green Party (PVE) criticizes the Liberal Reformatory Party (PLR), which holds control over the Ministry of Environment, for poor management of natural resources and protection of environment. This message has been disseminated through a press release issued by the PVE. Ecologists say that the surfaces of illegally cut woods have grown, and abuses continue in the extraction of sand and gravel in the river beds of the Prut and the Nistru. He also qualified the request of dismissal of the vice minister of environment Dorin Dusciac, who is also vice chairman of the PLR, as a disgraceful act of the party in order to hide the committed wrongdoings.
