The Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM) will make alliance with any right-wing party that will enter the parliament after the 2018 elections. PDM leader Vlad Plahotniuc made the statement, following the weekly meeting of the party. The main aim will be to make sure that Republic of Moldova will continue to pursuit European Integration.

Vlad Plahotniuc noted that in recent days, some parties in Moldova have begun the electoral campaign. “Taking into consideration the recent studies, showing the dire situation in the far-right parties and the grave dangers for Republic of Moldova in 2018 elections. This unoriginal way of dealing with the current situation has to be changed, otherwise it creates a risk for the future of Republic of Moldova. It is time to ring the warning bell, before it is not too late. Regardless of whether you serve the opposition or the Government the citizens need officials to look after their problems", leader of PDM Vlad Plahotniuc declared.

”To clarify the position of PDM, I announce that today we proposed to adopt a resolution at the meeting of the PDM National Political Council, which clearly establishes that PDM will make political alliances with any right-wing party that will pass the electoral threshold”, he said.

PDM will not compete against far-right parties neither before the elections, nor close the them. PDM though, will show all it's might to any who will attempt to stop Moldova from pursuing an European path and modernization, to destroy all the treaties signed so far with the European Union and other acts that will make a turn for the worse in Moldova's development, Vlad Plahotniuc added.

At the same time, the leader of PDM has declared that the main aim of the alliance will be to ensure that Moldova will have a pro-European government after the 2018 elections.

"For Moldova to continue on this path, all far-right parties have to make everything to increase their chases. They must not limit themselves by electoral traps. They make a scene by declaring that never will they enter in an alliance with PDM, an opinion we consider childish. It will do them no good. They have done the same thing at the past presidential elections and therefore, repelled people who would have voted for a far-right candidate. We ask of them to not repeat the same mistake twice, as this time, the future of Republic of Moldova is at stake.  I hope that they will start thinking critically and not let their obsessions and pride get in their way" leader of PDM, Vlad Plahotniuc concluded.

Spokesman of the Democratic Party of Moldova, Vitalie Gamurari declared at the same press conference that the party is boycotting the referendum meant to forcefully remove from office Mayor of Chisinau. "The position and intention of the Democratic Party of Moldova is very clear, for the sole reason that this suggestion came from the Socialist Party and President Igor Dodon. This initiative has nothing to do with the needs of the citizens, nor with the real problems the Capital is facing. It is solely a political move and PDM declares that in no way will it participate in this referendum. Especially since they follow the interests of a single party, a year before the parliamentary elections", Vitalie Gamurari stated.
