Chisinau, July 6 ( INFOTAG ). Filat said that the LDPM has decided to enter the election race to persuade the electorate that "it will be able to achieve a decent life only together and by joint efforts".

"After eight years of Communist rule Moldovan society has been divided according to ethic and political criteria. Society needs to consolidated and all those dividing people should be severely punished," LDPM leader stated.

He bitterly criticized the behavior of the ruling Communist Party in the ongoing election campaign, saying that Liberal Democrats will not participate in the political war unleashed by the Communists.

Similar ideas were voiced by the editor-in-chief of the Russian-language Moldavskiye Vedomosti newspaper, Dumitru Ciubasenco, who is running for a parliamentary seat on the LDPM's ticket. He said that the LDPM is drafting strategy aimed at putting an end to splitting society and reconciling citizens.

The LDPM believes that Moldovans will be able to go to Europe without visas in 2011, while in 2012 Moldova could be given the status of an EU associated member.
