On Wednesday, the coordinator of the governing coalition, Vlad Plahotniuc, had a meeting with Norica Nicolai, member of the European Parliament and member of the EU-Moldova Parliamentary Association Committee (D-MD).

During the discussions, Vlad Plahotniuc presented to Norica Nicolai the strategy of the Coalition for 2018 with regard to the European path of our country.

"Our strategy is simple: a new pro-European coalition in 2018, security and development for the country, consolidation of partnerships with the European Union. I ask from you further support in the EU, particularly for level-headed discussions with the opposition as well. A new pro-European coalition will ensure continuity of reforms and will not allow deviating from the European path. We cannot afford to pull back - the development of the country should go first, not personal pride", said the coalition leader, Vlad Plahotniuc.

In her turn, Norica Nicolai, member of the European Parliament, showed that it is quite obvious in Brussels that Moldova is in the process of implementing reforms that contribute decisively to the European path of this country. At the same time, Norica Nicolai mentioned that the elections in autumn would be a first important point in terms of transparency and democratic elections without the influence of Russian propaganda.

She also pointed out that the Republic of Moldova is a sovereign state and has the right to decide which way to choose representatives for its Parliament. Norica Nicolai also specified that it is important for these elections to be as correct as possible and the future Legislative to be continuously dedicated to the European path. During the meeting, the leader of the Coalition brought up in discussion the progress of reform implementation, economic growth that Moldova accomplished within the last two years, the reform of central public administration, cutting down of red tape and attention paid to the citizens' agenda in implementation of reforms.
