Evolution of the multi-party system on the territory of the Republic of Moldova
Publication "Evolution of the multi-party system on the territory of the Republic of Moldova" is aimed to fill a gap existing in the literature on history of political parties in Moldova, and also to contribute to the development of the political culture in Moldova. The book is structured in five chapters and provides insights into the history of electoral and party systems in Moldova since the XIX century. In particular, it is retrospectively analyzed the evolution of the electoral and party systems in Bessarabia during the XIX-XX centuries, and described the main stages in the creation and development of political parties in Moldova after independence in 1991. Moreover, are analyzed factors that contributed to the specificity of the contemporary Moldovan party system and are examined the main characteristics of Moldovan political parties. Finally, the authors concluded that the existence of a multiparty system was a positive factor for Moldova’s democratization, but also emphasized that no the conscious efforts of political parties formed the Moldovan democracy; it was rather a side phenomenon of the parties’ struggle for political power.
The book is published within the project "Stronger cooperation of political parties, electoral bodies and voters"
implemented by ADEPT with the financial support of the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).
