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.

The meeting was opened by the oldest councilor Vasile Carafiz, who represents the Communist Party. Afterward, the councilors received their permits. The representatives of the Communist Party, who are the largest in number, were the first to come into possession of the permits.

Only Valentin Guznac - the only councilor of the Democratic Party - was absent from the inaugural meeting. He will get his permit of councilor in an ordinary meeting. Central Election Commission chairman Iurie Ciocan said that Valentina Buliga, who topped the list of Democratic candidates for councilor, renounced the seat as she decided to continue serving as Minister of Labor and Social Protection.

In the same meeting, Dorin Chirtoaca was invested as Mayor General of Chisinau for a new tenure. His opponent in the elections Igor Dodon, who entered the CMC on the Communist ticket, congratulated the mayor on his investiture, shaking his hand wishing him success.

The Council was to be constituted on July 15, but the meeting was adjourned because the quorum was not present. Only the 26 councilors of the Communist Party appeared at the meeting then.

The CMC consists of 26 Communist councilors, 17 councilors of the Liberal Party, seven councilors of the Liberal Democratic Party and of one Democratic councilman.
