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 bill to this effect was going to be approved in a final reading today. However, the forum put off the bill consideration because not all corrections and amendments to the law have been summarized yet.

"The parliamentary Standing Committee for Economic Policy, Budget and Finance failed to reach an accord on some amendments, so we decided to bring their consideration to the plenary meeting of the Parliament", explained Committee Chairman Veaceslav Ionita, a Liberal Democrat.

Speaker Marian Lupu reprimanded the deputy for his failure to prepare all necessary summaries to amendments in time.

"I often hear remarks in my address, including from you, that e.g. there is no order in the parliament room and that I often cannot provide all necessary draft documents to plenary meetings. Well, which order can one speak about if you yourself come for plenary meetings unprepared. What did you do in the Committee, and why haven't you prepared everything?" Lupu demanded from Ionita.

Liberal Democrat Simion Furdui came to his party comrade's help, accusing the Democrats of bringing in their amendments at the last moment before plenary meetings.

"They deliver their amendments every day, so we are just not able to study everything thoroughly. I've got an impression that all this is being done deliberately to delay the adoption of the law", said Furdui.

The deputies decided to submit all available proposals on this bill by next Monday, so as to give the Committee time enough to consider them by next Thursday, when the Parliament will hold its final plenary meeting before a summer recess.
