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.

2009-07-17/16:13/ Chisinau (IPN) The authors asked the Chisinau Municipal Council (CMC) to allot a plot of land on which to build the monument, Info-Prim Neo reports.

The monument will represent a homage and moral compensation to the persons that were subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment by the Communist regime, the PLDM president Vlad Filat said at a news conference on Friday.

It will also be a historical proof of the true face of the regime that has administered Moldova since 2001, the Liberal-Democratic leader added.

“Given that the Communist government refuses to admit its guilt, apologize publicly and assume responsibility for the actions aimed against the Moldovan people, it is our duty to support those th at were victims of the dictatorship established by Vladimir Voronin and offer them moral rehabilitation,” Vlad Filat said, quoting the letter that the party sent to the CMC.

The monument will be built with money allocated from the “April 2009” Fund, which consists of voluntary donations.

The Fund’s Administration Board includes Victor Boboc, the father of Valeriu Boboc, who died as a result of the April 7 violence, Iurie Crsciuneac, a victim of torture, and Vlad Filat, the PLDM president, the party says in a communiqué.

A part of the Fund’s resources went to provide support to the families of the victims of the April 7 violence, to rehabilitate those tortured and to provide legal assistance to persons arrested after the protests, the communiqué says.

2009-07-17/15:56/ MAE traces symbolic contour of April 7 victims

Chisinau (IPN) The Chisinau residents that Friday crossed the Great National Assembly Square in the center of the city could see the symbolic contour of the victims of the April 7 events traced by the European Action Movement (MAE). The flashmob meeting was held under the slogan “You Could Have Been a Victim on April 7 Too!” Info-Prim Neo reports.

This way, the members of the MAE protested against the Moldovan Communist regime’s crimes that remained unpunished. “On April 7, the Communists had been here! They left death, grieving families and sadness behind. They left the blood of innocent persons behind,” the MAE says in a communiqué.

The party says that three persons died then, while hundreds of children were beaten cruelly by the mercenaries sent by the PCRM to end the democratic anticommunist protests.

The MAE tries to sensitize the Moldovan people and make them think about the victims of the PCRM and the mo urnful families before casting their vote on July 29.

During the current electoral campaign, the European Action Movement supports the Liberal parties - the PL, PLDM and AMN – in their common goal: to make democracy triumph and to remove the destructive Communist regime led by the Voronin clan once and for all, the party says in the communiqué. The MAE has announced that it will withdraw from the electoral race at the end of the campaign. Until then, it will promote anticommunist messages.
