The Communist Party, which gained 48 out of 101 parliamentary mandates, is waiting for proposals from the ruling coalition - the Alliance for European Integration, which consists of the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova (LDPM), the Liberal Party of Moldova, the Democratic Party of Moldova and the Moldova Noastra Alliance, Communist parliamentarian Vladimir Turkan told journalists.

He said that the Communist Party is waiting for proposals from the coalition, after this it will speak out its opinion concerning a dialogue, as well as its consent or refusal to vote for the presidential candidate to be proposed by the opposition.

Earlier the Communists did not rule out that they might give those eight votes to the coalition, which it lacks, but they remarked that they had a number of requirements to the probable candidates. It was unofficially stated that the Communists' requirements include: the new President must not be a political figure; he must not be involved in any corruption scandals or violations of the Law; he must not be a traitor, he must not share fascist or extremist views.

In this way the Communists made it clear that they do not want that anyone of the liberal party leaders of the coalition should occupy this post.

The ruling coalition said that the sides have not agreed upon a concrete candidature for the time being.
