The "Moldova Unită" Party of Spiritual Development [0.22% at April 5 parliamentary elections] has decided to stand for parliament on the ticket of the Social Democratic Party headed by Dumitru Braghis.


Moldova Unită leader Anna Tcaci told a news conference in Infotag today her party had decided so because the Social Democrats had won at the past elections the highest number of ballots [3.7%] among currently extra-parliamentary organizations.

"Presently, there exist three main groups of political forces in Moldova - the left, the right and the centrists. The assertions being heard these days - that only left and right forces should aspire for Parliament in the forthcoming elections i.e. only the Communists and liberal parties - will lead to splitting the country into two national sectors: a pro-Romania one and a pro-Russia ones. To prevent this, it is necessary to consolidate centrist parties", believes Anna Tcaci.

"We have proposed centrist party leaders to unite forces and draw up one list of candidates. I am calling on the leaders of these parties: give up your political ambitions and personal vanity, and act wisely for the sake of the country's future", said Anna Tcaci.

Gen. Anton Gamurari of the MU leadership indicated two more parties, with which Moldova Unită could confidently stand elections on a united ticket, - the Centrist Union of Moldova and the Democratic Party.

"We have not negotiated with the SDPM any methodology of compiling the common list of candidates, or how much means we will invest in the election campaign, for this is not the key question. The real key is to offer an alternative to citizens", said Gamurari.

He explained that Moldova Unită had suffered such a resounding defeat in April because the election results were falsified.

"May be, we were really not be able to exceed 6%. But I am absolutely sure that we polled considerably more than the miserable 0.22%", Gamurari stressed.

The "Moldova Unită" Party of Spiritual Development was founded in February 2006.
