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.

2009-07-18/12:59/ Chisinau (IPN) The ballot will be divided into nine quadrilaterals where there will be written the election runners and will be 26.5 cm long and 14 cm wide, Info-Prim Neo reports.

The electoral contenders will be written with capital letters in the order fixed by the CEC by draw.

The Party of Communists (PCRM) will be the first in ballots, the Christian Democratic People’s Party (PPCD) – the second, the Moldova Noastra Alliance (AMN) – the third, the Liberal Party (PL) – the fourth, the Liberal Democratic Party (PLDM) – the fifth, the Democratic Party (PDM) – the sixth, the Social Democratic Party (PSD) – the seventh, “European Action” Movement (MAE) – the eighth, and the Ecologist Party “Green Alliance” (PEMAVE) - the ninth.

At the sam e meeting, the CEC accepted the National Liberal Party’s application to be withdrawn from the electoral race. If other parties file such applications before the elections, they will be present on the ballots, but the stamp “withdrawn” will be put beside them.

The CEC will print over 2.5 million ballots. The number is not yet definitive as not all the electoral districts compiled and sent the lists with the exact number of voters.

The Commission also modified the lists of candidates of the PLDM and PSD. Vladimir Bodean, who was on the 54th position in the PLDM’s list, was excluded, while the PSD’s 102nd (the last) candidate Semion Toporovschi was moved up to the fourth place.
