20 parties have registered in the current election campaign. Many people say it is a too big number for such a small country as Moldova. At the same time, much more parties could take part in the election campaign.

Transnistrians will be welcome at polling stations on western bank

Like at the previous parliamentary elections in 2005, polling stations will be opened for Transnistria residents on the right Nistru bank because Chisinau has no possibility to open such facilities in the breakaway region.

Chisinau, February 3 ( INFOTAG ). Central Election Commission Secretary Iurie Ciocan told the press after a CEC meeting on Monday night that in previous several months, the Commission tried to reach a consensus with the Transnistria administration on opening stations on the eastern bank, but Tiraspol did not permit to.

Transnistrian central electoral commission chairman Piotr Denisenko stated, in particular, "By the very fact of our taking part in the Moldovan parliamentary elections, we would automatically recognize that the Transnistrian Republic does not exist as such. First Chisinau will open five hundred stations here, then it will claim that we have voted ourselves and made our choice. No, the Moldovan authorities may not boss on our land."

On March 6, 2005, Moldova opened 10 stations at various locations along the Nistru, where Transnistria residents having Moldovan passports could come and vote.
