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 27 ( INFOTAG ). The three parties issued a Joint Statement saying that on July 29 Moldova will make a choice between "the past and the future, poverty and welfare, dictatorship and freedom".

"We have a chance to democratically remove the Communist Party from power and carry out reforms in Moldova. The current political crisis is a consequence of the Communist power's incompetence, but by acting together we are able to overcome it", said the document.

Its authors reminded that all European people, which had remained under the dictatorship of Communist totalitarian rule, have overcome the consequences of such regime gradually, and have come back into the European family of nations.

"In the European area, communism as a political regime has remained only in Moldova. The approaching elections are giving us a chance to turn over this sorrowful page of our history once and forever", the opposition parties wrote.

In their conviction, the July 29 elections will be a test of the Moldovan society's political maturity.


Chisinau, July 27 ( INFOTAG ). The oppositional Moldova Noastra Alliance is pointing out the incumbent authorities' unprecedented using of the law enforcement in the election campaign.

The MNA wrote in its statement today, "It is an old unlawful practice of our incumbent leaders', which they do not wish to stop despite addresses by electoral contenders and European organizations".

"Instances have been growing in number lately when officials from prosecution organs, police, various controlling organs unfoundedly accuse opposition parliamentary candidates of their involvement in illegal transactions or contacts with circles presenting interest for the Interpol. These accusation scenarios have been fabricated beforehand, are coordinated by the Communist Party's electoral headquarters, and are used before elections specially to restrict the possibilities of such insinuation victims to protect their right of a correct public image", the document said.

The MNA presumes that these are precisely high-ranked officials from the law enforcement organs who stand up as libelers, so these officials, and the state structures they represent and the state itself should be brought to stand responsibility for such offences.

The Alliance called upon power officers to give up fulfilling blindly the unlawful orders of their chiefs.
