Balti, northern Moldova, November 17 ( INFOTAG ). The Balti territorial organization of the Centrist Union of Moldova (CUM) has quitted the formation in protest against the situation that has shaped in it lately. The Union has thus become approximately 5 hundred persons weaker.

The organization's chairman, a member of the Balti Municipal Council and of the CUM National Council Sergiu Strul stated that he and his party comrades decided to quit the union because they did not wish to be a part of the inter-party struggle that began in the Union upon the election of ex-premier of Moldova Vasile Tarlev as CUM Chairman.

Sergiu Strul said that a group of former officers from power organs have united around the new leader Tarlev and have embarked on a fierce struggle against regional leaders.

The Balti organization did not say how they will be acting now. Analysts presume they may well join another party.

The Centrist Union of Moldova is an extra-parliamentary party. Yet its political weight has grew substantially with the election of Vasile Tarlev its chairman. The analysts are saying the CUM has real chances to get to parliament in 2009.


 

...AND MP ANATOL TARANU DIVORCES NLP

Chisinau, November 17 ( INFOTAG ). Deputy Chairman of the National Liberal Party MP Anatol Taranu has quitted the party. The NLP National Council accepted his resignation last Saturday.

The Council wrote in its Press Advisory Mr. Taranu left the organization because he disagreed with the recent essential decisions taken by the NLP governing organs, particularly concerning the party's decision to stand for parliament in 2009 jointly with the Actiunea Europeana [European Action] socio-political movement, though the NLP has not yet completed its negotiations with the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova.

Unlike Taranu, the National Liberal Party leader, independent MP Vitalia Pavlicenco presumes the recent joint decision by the NLP and the Actiunea Europeana on coordinating their efforts and running for parliament together "was the most important decision in the party's life over last several months."

"The National Liberals and the Actiunea Europeana share similar program values and goals as well as the wish to work hard to convince voters that our political stance is correct. We believe the republic is in need of reforms. So, we have agreed with the Movement to work out an action plan for the approaching election campaign and an agreement on our cooperation. These should lead to the formation of a unified party after the 2009 parliamentary election", Pavlicenco said.

At its latest meeting, the Party Council elected three new NLP Deputy Chairs: Chisinau municipal councilor Mihai Severovan, Chairman of the national liberal youth organization Veaceslav Ombun, and Chairwoman of the national liberal women's organization Diana Crudu
