“If a referendum took place in Moldova this weekend, 45% of polled people would vote for the country’s entry into the Customs Union,” the chairman of the Association of Sociologists and Demographers of Moldova, Viktor Mocanu, said.
He said 35% of those questioned would vote against, while another 7% would ignore the referendum.
“A total of 43% of respondents would vote for the European Union membership, while 40% would vote against. Five percent would ignore the voting,” the survey suggests.
Experts link this change in the mood with a worsening economic situation in the country and declining ratings of Pro-European Coalition, the ruling coalition in Moldova.
The opinion poll was carried out in 70 settlements of the country, involving more than 1,000 people. The margin of error is no more than three percent.
