The Ecological Green Party officially joined the electoral campaign
The Ecological Green Party (PVE) has officially joined the electoral campaign for the parliamentary elections of 30 November, with the slogan “A clean person in a clean country!”.
According to the party, Moldova needs more ecology, solidarity and democracy in order to follow the European path it had chosen. “The society has the right to a healthy environment that would allow more opportunities for development. The Ecological Green Party focuses on promotion of ecological agriculture, introduction of ecological education as a subject of study in educational institutions, creation of working conditions for specialists in Moldova, promotion of youth in public life and encouragement of women to strive for public offices,” said PVE leader Anatolie Prohnitchi at a press conference. According to him, Moldova needs a reform of the political and governmental system. “So far, governmental institutions have been politicized and dependent on oligarchic and political orders, which has been noted by the Green Members of the European Parliament and by the EU representatives in Moldova in a number of reports,” Prohnitchi said. Ecologists also say that Moldova needs energy independence by capitalizing on renewable energy and a system of energy efficiency. // Unimedia

It should be mentioned that Formuzal’s decision has been preceded by the interdiction to travel on the territory of Ukraine, imposed when transiting the border between Moldova and Ukraine on his way to Odessa. On the other hand, Oleg Topolnitchi, leader of the electoral bloc, said at a press conference that Formuzal’s withdrawal from the electoral list is temporary.
