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, November 26 ( INFOTAG ). The National Council of the Socialist Party (SP) is proposing that at the forthcoming 2009 parliamentary elections, the Socialists should render support to the Ravnopraviye [Equal Rights] Socio-Political Movement headed by Valery Klimenko.

A SP Council member, Balti municipal councilor Vladimir Dorojko told a news conference in Infotag today that the approaching party congress will decide officially on including SP candidates into the Ravnopraviye list of candidates.

"We reckon that Ravnopraviye and its political program are standing the closest to our ideals and political outlooks", Dorojko said.

He read out the Socialist Party's Appeal to compatriots that contained criticism against the Communist Party "ruling the Republic of Moldova for nearly 8 years now". The document said, in particular, that Moldova is remaining the poorest country in Europe, that a half of its workable population have emigrated, and that "the gastarbeiters' remittances are precisely our national economy based on their sufferings and grievances".

"Our authorities claim we are a neutral state. However, the NATO Information and Documentation Center operates in Chisinau. According to NATO plans, the Moldovan army is undergoing a profound restructuring, a NATO military base is being built at the Marculesti airfield, the Moldovan military are acting in Iraq on the NATO's side, and Moldovan helicopters are flying in Afghanistan", the SP statement said.

The SP Council maintains the Communist authorities are not reunifying the country as they constantly say: "On the contrary, they are pushing Transnistria away, are stirring up discord in Gagauzia, and are waging a war against the Chisinau Primaria [city government]. And under the disguise of European integration, the Communists are pushing Moldova into Romania".

The statement further said that by order from the United States, the Moldovan Parliament will instantly pass all documents necessary for Moldova's reunification with Motherland Romania one day.

The Socialists complained of the continuing absence of a Basic Political Treaty with Romania and a State Border Treaty, which they believe is an indication that the Romanian authorities regard Moldova as their own territory.

The Socialists are discontented about a sharp reduction of the Russian-speaker populace representatives in state power organs. According to the Socialist Party's data, in the early 1990s ethnic non-Moldovans used to constitute 7% in the organs, and nowadays - merely 0.15%, though non-title minorities constitute one-third of the Republic of Moldova populace.

As for the country reintegration, the Socialist Party is proposing to hold joint sittings of the Moldovan Parliament, the Transnistrian supreme soviet and the Gagauzia Popular Assembly on the reunification topic "without any preconditions or reservations".

At the 2005 parliamentary elections, the Socialist Party was running in a voting bloc together with the Party of the Socialists and the Patria-Rodina Movement. The bloc polled 6% ballots, which was not enough to get to parliament because the electoral barrier for voting blocs was 9% then.
