RISE: The four parties in the new Legislature have spent 57,400,000 lei in five weeks of election campaign

Published

on

The four parties in the new legislature dug 57,400,000 lei in only five weeks of electoral campaign. The biggest winners of the electoral race are the televisions affiliated to the Democratic Party, which accounted for about 20,000,000 lei in advertising, according to a RISE Moldova investigation.

Plahotniuc’s Democratic Party has spent almost all the campaign money to promote its candidates in every place possible: TV, radio, posters, billboards, flyers, etc.. The main beneficiaries are six TV channels – Publika TV, Prime TV, Canal 2, Channel 3, CTC Media, Domashniy family, and four radio stations – Publika FM, FM Radio, Russkoe Radio, Maestro FM, all headquartered on Ghioceilor Street 1. They have collected more than 15,000,000 lei for broadcasting the Democrats’ spots.

More than 8,500,000 lei went to Prime and Publika TV, positions held by General Media Group Corp. SRL (Details HERE and HERE).

In other words, the money came into the pocket of our beloved oligarch and the direct owner of these two televisions, Vladimir Plahotniuc

A sum nearly 6 times higher than that of the Socialist Party, and more than 16 times the amount that those in the ‘ACUM’ opposition bloc have been able to spend. The Shor Party has achieved two-thirds of the Democrats’ performance, with an electoral budget of less than 10,000,000 lei.

The electoral bloc ‘ACUM’ had the lowest electoral budget, mostly achieved through citizens’ donations – roughly 1,800,000 lei.

PNL in Chisinau: “Unfortunately, as seen from Bucharest, things are getting worse in Moldova”

Published

on

Today, in Chisinau, the National Liberal Party of Romania (PNL) is launching the candidates for the May 26, 2019 elections to the European Parliament. Under the slogan “It’s time for Bessarabia along with Romania in the first place”, the party presented its candidates, being supported by the leaders of the bloc ‘ACUM’ Maia Sandu and Andrei Nastase.

In Chisinau there are the PNL chairman, Ludovic Orban, MEP and EPP spokesman, Siegfried Mureşan, journalist Rareş Bogdan, television and PNL list, as well as the PNL lawmakers.

According to journalist Rareş Bogdan, democracy in Moldova is in danger.

“Unfortunately, as seen from Bucharest, things are getting worse in Moldova, and the opposition is under threat and pressure. The power excuses represented by Vlad Plahotniuc and Igor Dodon are inferior to those who supported the leaders of the bloc ‘ACUM’. The fact that they have reached over 800 mayoral mandates in 900 clearly shows that democracy is in great danger. I ask publicly here from Chisinau that the Romanian state should be more careful about the territories over the Prut.”

The PAS leader, Maia Sandu, urged Moldovan citizens who possess Romanian citizenship, to vote.

“We are worried about the things that happen in the European Union, in general, because there are populist, corrupt politicians who want to weaken the European Union. That is why we want the next parliament to become responsible deputies.”

9 out of 12 airlines from Moldova were banned from operating in the EU skies

Published

on

Nine Moldovan airlines were included in the European Commission’s revised list of airlines that do not meet international safety standards and are subject to a ban on operating in the European Union (EU).

According to the European Commission information cited by Agerpres, all Moldovan air carriers certified by the authorities with responsibility for regulatory oversight of Moldova with the exception of Air Moldova, Fly One and Aerotranscargo have been included in the list because of the lack of safety oversight by the Civil Aviation Authority of Moldova.

Moldovan airlines banned in the EU:

All in all, 120 airlines have been banned from operating in the EU: 114 companies registered in 16 states due to lack of oversight by the airline authorities of those countries, plus six other companies due to concerns about the security of these companies: Avior Airlines (Iran), Iran Aseman Airlines (Iran), Iraqi Airways Iraq), Blue Wing Airlines (Suriname), Med-View Airlines (Nigeria) and Air Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe). According to the European Commission, the EU’s list of airlines banned within the EU has become a major preventive tool, motivating countries to act before a ban is needed.
