Over 200 OSCE Monitors To Observe Election In Moldova

Posted by Info on 27/10/2010

The parliamentary election will be the third one in Moldova over the past two years. The deputies fail to elect head of state as this requires the votes of three-fifths of the deputies (61 out of the 100). The changes in the alignment of forces have not influenced the situation. Whereas the Communist deputies had voted for president, while the opposition boycotted the election, the roles changed after the early election with the result remaining the same.

The coalition of liberal parties that came to power by the election time lowered the election barrier from five to four percent, and again permitted forming election blocs even though the parties of the alliance are going to participate in the election each on its own. The proportionate system of distributing the mandates of the parties that have not made it to parliament was dropped. The principle of parity will now be used, that is, the mandates will now be distributed among the factions share and share alike, regardless of the number of votes earned.
