At this week’s sittings, on Thursday or on Friday, the Parliament will set the date of the rerun presidential elections.
“Most probably, the second round of voting will be held between December 7 and 10,” Marian Lupu, the leader of the Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM), who is the Alliance for European Integration’s candidate for the presidency, said in a news conference on Tuesday. Lupu also said that by the end of this week, the Alliance will make public a set of proposals intended for the Opposition party, the PCRM.
The proposals are designed to convince the PCRM to vote in favor of the candidate for the head of state. Marian Lupu said the responsibility for the given proposals is borne first of all by him, then by the PDM and the other parties that form part of the Alliance – the PLDM, PL and AMN.
Lupu also said that many of the proposals will have to be adopted by the Parliament, like those concerning the Opposition for example.
“The PCRM’s reaction to these proposals is not yet known. They are yet to be examined,” Marian Lupu stressed.
Many countries focused attention on the election of the President of Moldova. Marian Lupu said he discussed the political situation in Moldova with representatives of different countries at the congress of the United Russia Party held in Saint-Petersbourg on November 20. He attended the congress as the leader of the PDM.
The political, economic and social situation in Moldova will be also discussed in Brussels, while Marian Lupu will be paying a working visit between November 30 and December 1. On November 27, Marian Lupu will have a meeting with Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighborhood Policy, who will be in Chisinau on a working visit.
