Poll finds Moldova’s ruling coalition has 37% support two weeks before election

By bne IntelliNews November 17, 2014

The pro-European governing coalition in Moldova, the CPEG – comprised by the Liberal Democrat Party [PLD], Democrat Party [PD] and Liberal Reformed Party [PLR] – would get only 37% of the votes in the upcoming parliamentary election, versus a combined 39% of anti-EU parties, according to a poll conducted by Magenta Consulting for the International Republican Institute and quoted by Infotag on November 14. The parliamentary election is scheduled for November 30.

While 46% of the voters support Moldova’s European integration, 42% opted for country’s partnership with its eastern neighbours including Russia

The senior coalition party, the PLD, would get 22% of the votes, the PD would get 14%, and the PLR only 1% – below the 6% threshold for entering the parliament.

The Liberal Party [PL] – also of European orientation but in opposition for the past year and a half – retains a significant 8% support among voters.

On the other side, the leftist parties that are more favourable to the country’s orientation toward Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States would receive 39% of votes. However, it is unclear whether these three parties – the Party of Communists (PCRM) with 23%, Patria Party of Renato Usatai with 10% and Socialist Party of Moldova (PS) with 6% – are ready to join forces.
