OSCE PA President congratulates Moldova and new elected President

OSCE PA President Petros Efthymiou applauded the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova for electing a national president after a more than two and half year political stalemate in Chisinau.

“We are pleased that a president has been elected,” said Efthymiou, who led the OSCE election observation mission in Moldova in July 2009. “We hope the vote in parliament will lead to progress on some of the key OSCE political issues.”

Over the years, in meetings with colleagues from the Moldovan Parliament, the Assembly has encouraged a solution to this political crisis, including through visits from the Assembly’s Parliamentary Team on Moldova.
