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.

European observer: first the Communists had 35%

"When we stoped the count at about 1 a.m., it looked as though the Communists were going to have 35%, and the combined opposition would be about 40 to 45%," baroness Emma Nicholson, a member of the European Parliament, has told the BBC, quoted by Info-Prim Neo. She monitored the elections as part of the OSCE team.

2009-04-08/14:57/ Chisinau (IPN)„And by 8 a.m. the figures were really very very different indeed. It was 50% for the Communists and something tiny, very small indeed for the other opposition parties," Emma Nicholson said. "But we had no proof," said the European parliamentarian.

"I would have been much more guarded, had I been the leader of the delegation, myself," Emma Nicholson stated. The baroness says she has much experience in monitoring the elections in this region. "Our report was much too warm and friendly towards that vote. The problem is that it was an OSCE report. The OSCE includes the Russ ians. And the Russians' view was quite substantially different from my own, for example," said observer Emma Nicholson.

Dear fellow citizens of Moldova and Dear Observers and Dr Madam - Emma Nicholson,

Are we all "BLIND?"
Don't we realise that the Government has "MISSUSED" power and CONTROL?
They have used all kind of methods to falsify the ellection results and now claim AUTHORITY and "WINING!"

They should be shamed in front of the world and let everyone know that there are more than 40 embasies which vots have not been counted, there were more than 200000 "DEAD or Unexisting" votters, pluss those people which are officially living in Moldova - but in reality are abroad, the rulling party have used their names to build the required number of votes to officially win elections.

Besides this: Why use the authority and power to officially take control? Why such huge devastation on state public offices? Where was the Leader at that point? Why did he not come and talk to people and protesters? Why they did not control the state properties?

The answer is simple: The wanted to misslead again the entire world that The Communist Party are the Victim and all the rest are wrong - and blame them for all the damages and vandalism.

At this point, instead of blaming others, Mr Voronin should ask himself and his fellow supporters, if he is such a charismatic leader, why not come and lead in front of the peopel? Why hide away and stay behind the scenes and acuse others???

There are many other issues, but still there is One God who will call to judgement and God forbid the results would not be avoided!

It is always shame that the entire nation has to suffer as the Mr Voronin has to party and share the entire country with his "Oleshka!"

Shame on them - entire nation is suffering while they are celebrating:

I am supporting a RE-ellection and true profound and vigorous checks to be in place if the communist party want to rulle Moldova: let them put things right: Not to Misslead!

The TRUTH is out there: Just open your eyes! Believe in change and hope that no more blood would be lost as Moldavians are a very peaceful and honest nation - with exception of all the communist party!
