CHISINAU, November 11. /TASS/. Protests against hikes in household electricity rates in the center of Moldova’s capital Chisinau continue for the third day running. On Wednesday, about 1,000 activists of the opposition Our Party picketed the building of the National Agency for Energy Regulation (ANRE), which endorsed the decision.
The demonstrators marched along the city’s main streets carrying banners with inscriptions like "Down With Tariffs", "Government Must Go" and "Moldova, Wake up". The protests are peaceful, the entrance to the building is blocked by several rows of police officers.
"People cannot pay such exorbitant tariffs. Today they are set by oligarchs, Spaniards (owners of the Gas Natural Fenosa distribution company), the people is certainly not the decision maker. Power grids must be returned to state ownership," Vice-Chairman of Our Party Nikolai Tsipovich told protesters. He warned that, if the government did not reduce electricity tariffs, demonstrators would start to block roads.
