The Socialists are to Form a Left-Wing Bloc with the Communist Party for Early Parliamentary Elections
The Socialist Party will register for early parliamentary elections next week, says Igor Dodon. Earlier, former President Vladimir Voronin announced that the Communist Party intends to form a left-wing bloc for parliamentary elections.
Igor Dodon sent a formal request to Communist Party leader Vladimir Voronin, proposing to create a left-wing bloc for the upcoming early parliamentary elections.
“Next week, we will go to register for elections. We have two options: either an electoral bloc – the socialists with the communists, or the Socialists separately, if they do not want to go together in an electoral bloc formed by center-left parties,” announced the Socialist leader Igor Dodon.
On Thursday, May 6, the Communist Party announced its intention to continue consultations with representatives of the Socialist Party, with a view to creating an electoral bloc for the parliamentary elections.
“There are real threats that right-wing unionist forces will come to power, which threatens the country’s independence and sovereignty,” states the Communist Party press release.
The leader of the Communist Party, Vladimir Voronin, previously apologized to the Moldovan people for declaring his support for Igor Dodon before the second round of the 2016 presidential election. The communist leader said that he then left behind his personal conflict with Dodon, hoping that he would work in the interest of the citizens.
