Chisinau, July 20 ( INFOTAG ). The congress elected Dumitru Diacov, who had headed the party last 13 years, as Honorable Chairman of the organization. For this, the delegates introduced a special amendment to the DP Charter, according to which an honorable chairperson is elected lifelong "for special merits before the party".

Diacov stated that Lupu's coming to the DP leadership "should lead to renovation of the party. Marian Lupu is 14 years younger than me, and I am glad he has come to a consolidated party and is ready for struggle".

Lupu has called Dumitru Diacov's act as one deserving respect and one that should lead to renovation of the Moldovan political class.

According to recent opinion polls, the Democratic Party may now win some 9-10% mandates in the new Parliament of Moldova. On April 5, the DP received only 2.97%.
