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.

Ex-Speaker of the Moldovan Parliament, informal Leader of the Democratic Party Marian Lupu considers that incumbent Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin must not pretend for any of the leading posts in Moldova.

Chisinau, July 9 ( INFOTAG ). He made this statement Wednesday evening at his meeting with Moldovan bloggers. He considers it to be an axiom.

He remarked that Vladimir Voronin made a lot of good things for Moldova, but he also created a lot of problems.

"I will not speak about this now. I shall only say that after the elections of April 5, Vladimir Voronin became the Parliament Chairman and became making everything in order to shift the power center to the Parliament. It is not correct. It is the personification of power in Moldova", the DP new leader stressed.

He said that the Democratic Party of Moldova will never vote for a Communist candidate on the Presidential post.

He also said that he does not strive to become the Moldovan President by any means.

"If the Communist Party has the majority in the Parliament (52 out of 101 deputies), I will not agree to compete even for this post. I see no sense in this, as the parliamentary majority forms the Government and the President will have no influence on the Cabinet of Ministers", Lupu underlined.

As Infotag has already reported, Lupu left the ranks of the Communist Party before the early parliamentary elections, when the opposition frustrated the election of the President in the Parliament. Ex-Speaker, who was one of the most influential Communist leaders, headed the slate of the parliamentary candidates from the Democratic Party of Moldova.
