CHISINAU, November 25. /TASS/. President Nicolae Timofti of Molodva has urged the voters across the country to vote for pro-European parties in the parliamentary election that will be held next Sunday, November 30.
Timofti said this on Monday in a televised address to the nation.
“Europe is supporting us politically, financially and economically and what we’re left for us to do is to confirm our consent to a European course and to be persistent,” he said.
Latest opinion polls show Euro-skepticism in the former Soviet republic is on the rise and the popularity ratings of pro-European parties are on the decline after the signing of an association agreement /AA/ between the EU and Moldova.
In the light of it, Timofti called on the fellow-countrymen “to step over the passing displeasures and to show unity in order to oppose those who criticize the EU.”
He believes the Moldovans should look at Ukraine where a pro-European parliament and government was elected a few weeks ago. He dismissed the proposals of the opposition to join the Eurasian Customs Union as illusionary ones.
In meantime, opinion polls show that most Moldovans support the idea of joining the Customs Union. The eastward vector of development was clearly chosen in the course of referendum by residents of the Gagauzia autonomous district in the south of the country and the breakaway region of Transdniestria, or the unrecognized Dniester Republic.
This split the country into two camps. Political analysts say the November 30 election is de facto tantamount to choosing Moldova’s foreign policy course.
