Chisinau, February 13 ( INFOTAG ). The party issued a statement saying this decision was passed with an account of voters' wishes concerning consolidation of democratic forces for the sake of creating viable and effective political structures capable of bearing responsibility for the country's destiny.

The PRP document said, "We are convinced this is a correct and promising decision... The country is in need of healthy political forces and politicians who have proved in deeds over many years that they really care about the state's and citizens' interests, and who promoted - by concrete actions not by declarations - consolidation of the Moldovan statehood, promotion of reforms, consolidation of democracy and a law-governed state, growth of the citizenry's prosperity".
