Political class, less popular. How do we restore trust?

The current parliamentarians are enjoying less and less popularity, amid the disappointment of the citizens, who say that they are tired of being promised the world in election campaigns. Once they enter the Parliament, the deputies only care about their interests. The citizens claim that one of the solutions, which would put the country on the right path, is to organize the early parliamentary election. The need for new elections is discussed more and more in society. Would a new Parliament be able to restore people’s confidence in the political class?

Alexandru Slusari, deputy chairman of the Dignity and Truth Platform Party Faction

“People say that they are disappointed with the political class.” This impression has the right to exist, as we have Parliament elected in the formula of the mixed vote Plahotniuc – Dodon. At the same time, in this Parliament, we have many deputies that passed from one party to another. The only solution to resolve the political situation in the country is the parliamentary elections. When poverty prevails, it is much easier to manipulate people with election gifts, buckwheat, and canned stewed meat. It is necessary to explain to people what the real situation is. As long as most of the media is guided by criminal-political groups, justice does not work, and those who should be in prison are in politics and get votes in Parliament, we cannot expect impressive results in the next period. We need to talk to people, break the information blockade, rely on our diaspora, and fight to change the situation.

Nicolae Ciubuc, deputy of the Democratic Party Faction

The situation shows that the subject of early elections and Parliament dissolution has been present from 2008 until now. Politicians are the ones who have contributed to this low confidence. Speaking of the current parliamentary term, I believe that the rhetoric of some members of Parliament has contributed to the lack of confidence. This is the worst and most disgusting thing that can happen. People go to the polls, the politicians promise the world and that they are a consolidated team that will contribute to as many deeds as possible, and after that, they enter the Parliament and do nonsense.

Lilian Carp, Action and Solidarity Party

The early parliamentary elections can give people a chance to choose another political class. There is no other formula. All over the world, when people no longer trust the political class, elections take place. People need to choose those who intend to enter politics. It also needs to involve more people with a vision of how society should evolve. With all these circumstances, people will go and choose those who can change something.

Marina Tauber, deputy chairwoman of the Shor Political Party Faction

Two years ago, people expressed confidence in four political forces that have access to Parliament. Three of them participated in various forms of governance. They formed alliances, coalitions, which they broke up because they did not know who would take more power. We ended up without a government again, amid the political, economic, and social crisis. Obviously, people are disappointed. The Shor Political Party and the For Moldova Platform is firmly in favor of the dissolution of this Parliament. But even if the early elections are right for us now, these cannot be organized without a functioning government that does not allow the crisis to deepen.

Corneliu Furculiță, Chairman of the Party of Socialists Faction

Citizens are right when they say that are disappointed with the political class, the Parliament, the Government, the Presidency. Every day, citizens get information about the compromised people promoted by the new President of the country, Maia Sandu, who promised a new political class and good people. Of course, the citizens, who hoped for a new political class, are disappointed when they see the millionaires surrounding Maia Sandu that have incomes of dubious origin. How can the citizens not be disappointed, if Maia Sandu promised them many beautiful things, but so far, she has not achieved anything? Do you think that the citizens understand this government game that we all experience now?

Andrian Candu, Chairman of the Faction Pro Moldova

First of all, the people are disappointed by our state, and secondly, by the institutions and people with whom these institutions are associated. Respectively, if we change the people and do not intervene over the institutions and the way the state works, and how they interact with the citizens, the disappointment will continue to increase, and I am afraid of riots or political extremes with authoritarian tendencies. Society as a whole needs to stop and decide what we want and who we trust.
