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.

Chisinau, July 22 ( INFOTAG ). The provincial lawmaker explained in his written statement for the press that he had long waited when the MCP leadership would put into life their promise to transform the organization into a modern, European-type left party, but his expectations did not come true.

Boldurescu believed for quite long that a reform and modernization of the Communist Party would be carried out by Marian Lupu, but now that Mr. Lupu has gone, this objective is no more topical for the ageing MCP leaders.

He also wrote that the April 7 events and the Communists' attempts to divide the Moldovan society into friends and foes are the result of purely electoral, instant interests that work contrary to the country's national interests.

"Bearing in mind that the grassroots suffer the most of political instability, I presume that the Republic of Moldova is in need of a new generation of politicians who would consolidate the society and give it a chance to overcome the crisis", wrote the Calaras councilor.
