CHISINAU, September 23 /TASS/. Protesters in Moldova who have accused the country’s leaders of corruption and demand their resignation are planning a new mass public rally on October 4, Andrei Nastase, one of the leaders of the Civic Platform DA (Dignity and Truth), said on Wednesday.
"Despite all our efforts, the authorities have failed to meet our demands. After local consultations held in most regions in Moldova, we decided to organize a new mass protest," Nastase stressed.
Activists are staging various street actions under flags of the European Union and Moldova every day: they are picketing administrative buildings; organizing car races and rallies in districts. Observers, however, note that fewer people are taking part in them.
On Wednesday, the Civic Platform DA leaders expressed concern with the prospect of sharing the city center with other opposition forces after the Party of Socialists and the Patria (Fatherland) Party had announced plans to start their protest actions.
"They are not partners. We have our own way," Nastase said adding that the tent camp set up on Chisinau’s central square after the last mass demonstration on September 13 would continue expanding. "We will also pitch tents in front of parliament building," Nastase said. The Party of Socialists and the Patria Party are also planning to set up a tent camp on that place during a protest rally set for September 27.
The demands of these parties are not different from those made by the Civic Platform DA: the resignation of the first persons of the state and the heads of supervisory agencies; government resignation and the appointment of a technical cabinet of ministers to hold snap parliamentary elections and transition to direct election of the country’s president by Moldovan citizens.
