And the winner is...not Moldova!

Moldova is getting less media attention anyway. The elections last Sunday (28 November 2010) were no exception. The parliamentary elections held on 28 November 2010 in Moldova supposed to put Moldova back on European track. However, the election results clearly show once again that political instability will continue shaping the Moldovan political and social life.

The Communist Party had been supported by 39.29% of all citizens who took part in the elections; the Liberal Democratic Party - 29.38%; the Democratic Party - 12.72%; and the Liberal Party - 9.96%. The governing Pro-European alliance won the elections. The most difficult task will be to build a coalition for electing the president. "The results of Moldova's general election, which took place Sunday (28 November), will not break the political stalemate that has continued for the past year and a half," Dan Alexe stated for

The Moldovan Communist Party will receive 42 mandates (in the 101-member Parliament of Moldova), the Liberal Democratic Party of Moldova (LDPM) - 32 mandates, the Democratic Party (DP) - 15, and the Liberal Party (LP) - 12.  Of course, there are many ways to build a coalition. The Pro-European alliance is now set for new coalition-building talks to find a way forward. For the future one thing should be stated: The lessons learned from previous elections were that a number of tasks have failed to be undertaken in Moldova at the necessary pace and with the necessary determination.

"Moldovans faced a choice of staying with the pro-Europe course of their liberal rulers or backing closer ties with Russia by voting for the Communists who lost power in July 2009," KyivPost reported.

In a statement, High Representative Catherine Ashton and Neighboourhood policy Commissioner Stefan Füle declared that the elections were carried out democratically, and called the political parties for solving the political one-way stalemate: "We welcome the conduct of the parliamentary elections in the Republic of Moldova on 28 November 2010, which met most international standards for democratic elections (...) We call upon all political forces represented in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova to engage in open and constructive dialogue paving the way for the formation of a governing coalition as well as the election of the President of the Republic, which, together, should be able to tackle the priority reforms that will shape the country's future.Only political stabile Moldova can expect the "EU willigness" for further rapprochement.

All political parties represented in the Moldovan parliament bear joint responsibility for the success of the innovation project "Moldova". This means clear European orientation. If politician competence is not explicitly included in the project or in the objectives of totally new kind of venture, then the attainment of the objectives is seriously at risk. And the winner will be a permanent instability and not Moldova.
