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.

Gagauzia Bashkan focuses on voters lists

Gagauzia Bashkan [Governor] Mikhail Formuzal has requested the mayors of the autonomous region's towns and villages to take the drawing up of voter registers under their personal, strict control.

Chisinau, June 30 ( INFOTAG ). Formuzal told a news conference today that although the previous ordinary parliamentary elections of April 5 were organized in Gagauzia fairly well, perhaps the only major problem that would not be solved to the very end has been the problem with voter lists: the previously prepared voter lists, which initially contained 128 thousand names, were recently subjected to verification, and, as a result, they now contain only 106 thousand names.

Nevertheless, the Bashkan demanded to examine the lists once more "to eliminate any inaccuracies. It is very important for us to have elections in Gagauzia be held in a quiet atmosphere and without violations. And it is key to convince everyone to come to the polls on July 29 irrespective of usual summer heat or vacations".

The Bashkan requested raion chairmen and town and village mayors to welcome party representatives and candidates for parliament with hospitality and ensure them equal conditions for electoral struggle.

Formuzal stated, "Myself personally and my deputies will be welcoming party leaders on our land. It is essential for us to make our residents aware of forthcoming meetings. In such case, voters will get a chance to receive first-hand answers to their questions".
