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.

When the butchered animals are eight months and younger, the commercial name indicated must be ‘calf meat'. When the animals are older than eight months, but younger than 12 months, the name must be ‘bovine youth meat", while when they are older than a year - ‘beef'. There must be also indicated the sex of the animals and if they reproduced or not.

Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry Vasile Bumacov said the calf meat and beef have specific qualities and the consumers must know the given information. "The proposed amendments are aimed at ensuring compliance with the standards used in the EU and form part of the common animal identification and registration system. They ensure the traceability of the animals and products of animal origin," said the minister.

He stressed it is very important that these requirements are observed when producing, importing and selling beef on the home market and when exporting the given products to the EU, within the system of autonomous trade preferences, as well as when Moldova obtains the status of third country for the export of products of animal origin to the EU.
