Moldovan Communists rally against the current ruling coalition
More than 100 people gathered in Central Square of Moldova’s capital of Chisinau to demonstrate against the ruling coalition. The protesters are adherents of the Communist Party which organizes anti-governmental demonstrations every Saturday.
The protesters, mostly old people, demand the resignation of the current Alliance for European Integration which has been ruling the country as of April 2009. According to the Communists, the President of Moldova was not elected because of “interest conflicts” within the coalition.
"Moldova needs a president. If the Alliance isn't able to elect one, may it leave," said Ion Rotaru, a protester who came from Danceni town.
Moldova hasn’t had a president since April 2009. Several attempts to elect the president took place during 2011, but they failed due to lack of majority of votes. The next attempt to choose the president is scheduled for March 16. For now, no candidates have been registered. The candidates are expected to subscribe by March 12.
