With 98% of the vote counted in Wednesday’s election, the ruling Communist Party received 45.1% of the vote (48 seats in parliament), the Liberal-Democratic Party of Moldova – 16.4% (17 seats), the Liberal Party – 14.4% (15 seats), the Democratic Party – 12.6% (13 seats) and the Our Moldova Alliance – 7.4% (eight seats).
