KISHINEV, July 22. /TASS/. Leaders of three parties in the republic of Moldova have initiated an agreement to set up a ruling pro-European coalition, Liberal Democratic (LDPM), Democratic (DPM) and Liberal (LPM) bloc chiefs announced on Wednesday.
"It will be called The Alliance for European Integration and will continue a pro-European policy. We also discussed a plan of action," LDPM chairman and former Prime Minister Vlad Filat said.
DPM leader and former parliament Speaker Marian Lupu said the parties had not reached agreement on candidature of a future Prime Minister and distribution of posts in the new cabinet.
"After signing the agreement… we will discuss the composition of a government. The formula for the appointment of party representatives in its composition is worked out. You will know all the details this week," he added.
Negotiations take place against the background of a scandal connected with the theft of $1 billion from banks during the work of a previous government formed by pro-European parties. The talks began on June 12 after Prime Minister Cyril Gaburici’s resignation.
The three party leaders have advanced plans for an Autumn referendum on changing Constitution provisions for electing a president. Moldova is a parliamentary republic and the only country where the president is elected by deputies of the legislative body.
