Democratic Party of Moldova Condemns Speculations That the Party May Be Outlawed

Democratic Party of Moldova, set up in 1997, acts and will further act legally, and the goal of all speculations in public space saying that PDM could be outlawed is to discredit the party and apply pressure on local elects to leave PDM. 

These speculations have also been launched to discourage potential candidates from the Democratic Party in local elections that are to take place on October 20.

Thusly, we call our political opponents to give up on such dirty attacks. We would also like to draw the attention of diplomatic community to anti-democratic slippages of some representatives of the government, which give blows to pluralism of opinions and political pluralism in the Republic of Moldova, hence hitting the democracy of our country.

Democratic Party of Moldova is the main opposition party in the country, voted by one of four people who took part in the most recent parliamentary elections. We will continue to draw attention to all illegalities, abuse of authority, to cases of interference into justice and violation of separation of powers in the state, to cases of ruthless political subordination of independent institution, such as what has already been done to CEC and NAC. We will further demand to take and implement specific actions for the well-being of citizens.
