Thus, 50 deputies will be elected according to the proportional system, and the voters will vote for the party or electoral block in the national constituency.

There are 15 political parties in the national constituency: the Democratic Party of Moldova, the electoral bloc ACUM, the Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, the Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova, the Party of the Movement for Democratic Forces, the Party of the People’s Movement, our People’s Party, the National Liberal Party from Moldova, the Democracy Home Party, the Speranta-Nadezhda Movement of Professionals, the Patria Party, the Ecologist Green Party and the Liberal Party.

The remaining 51 deputies are elected in uninominal constituencies. The voters vote for their candidate in the uninominal district where they have registered their domicile. According to the latest information, 325 candidates were enrolled in the uninominal electoral constituencies.

Simultaneously with the parliamentary elections, there is also the Republican consultative referendum organized by the Moldovan Democratic Party, in which the citizens are asked if they are to reduce the number of the deputies in the Parliament and if they are for the people to be able to dismiss (remove) the deputies from office.

Thus, voters will receive four ballots in the polling stations. At the same time, the voters will sign in two registers – one for the parliamentary elections and the other for the consultative referendum.

Citizens will be able to refuse referendum or election bulletins, only receiving the ones they will request.

I’m glad to meet you soon in Berlin.

I wish you good luck for the tasks that await you.

Angela Merkel
Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany”

Romanian historian A. Gosu about the Moldovan crisis: “Russia has found itself on the same side of the table as Americans and Europeans”

On Friday, the Interim Government of Chisinau, formed by oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc’s Democratic Party, gave up the government invested by Parliament, led by Maia Sandu. The formation led by Vladimir Plahotniuc called for early elections and argued that the current executive is illegal, citing precisely the decisions of the Constitutional Court last week, which, not long ago, were canceled.

Shortly after the Democratic Party announced it was withdrawing from the government, several private planes and charters for Moscow, Odessa, and London (with DPM members in them) took off from the Chisinau airport, writes Digi24.

Moldova’s Prime Minister, Maia Sandu, promised, in the first statement after the Democratic Party left, that all people guilty of the country’s crisis all these years (led by Plahotniuc) will be punished according to law.

Out of fear, the main criminal left the country “for a few days”. According to a press release, the reason is to see his family. His party’s members did not name the country in which Plahotniuc left. However, it is a well-known fact that Plahotniuc has two children living in Switzerland, where the leader of the DPM also owns a villa on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Plahotniuc stole $560,000,000 from the Russian banks.

Indeed, Moscow has long ago announced charges against Plahotniuc (February): Plahotniuc has organized an international criminal group with another businessman (Veaceslav Platon) in order to withdraw the money illegally. The last washed tranche – the famous Moldovan “laundromat” – was somewhere between 23,000,000,000 USD. This money – some of them – went to Romania, Latvia, England, the final destination of money being Western banks and the United States.

Plahotniuc got in trouble after he was involved in wreckage between various criminal groups close to Moscow’s power circles. He helped – including through Romania – to launder billions of dollars and ended the friendship with Russia, explained to Digi24 Armand Goşu, a former Soviet space expert.

Russia will internationally trace oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, who in the meantime, escaped the country. The information was confirmed by the Deputy Prime Minister of Moscow, according to statements made by one of the ‘ACUM’ bloc leaders, Andrei Nastase. In the name of the Democratic Party leader, there is a criminal case opened by Russian investigators.

“Oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc could not stand alone in front of this” monstrous ‘coalition’,” says Gosu.

For the first time since the Crimean crisis, Russia has found itself on the same side of the table as Americans and Europeans.

Also because of Plahotniuc, on the other hand, Putin is now conquering the hearts and minds of Moldovans – an essential battle in today’s hybrid war – in which Romania lost, adds historian Armand Gosu.

Plahotniuc, with support from Bucharest, managed, in a fairly good manner, to manipulate foreign embassies for years and Western chancelleries, which gave them the illusion that Chisinau is a pro-Western regime.
