CHISINAU, Nov 7. Opposition parties and political formations Moldova will hold a meeting after November 19 to discuss the issue of joining forces to fight the ruling Action and Solidarity party, ex-Prime Minister, leader of the Development and Unification Party of Moldova Ion Chicu said on Tuesday in the Telegram channel.
Last week in Moldova various opposition parties called for unification. Chicu invited everyone to take part in the meeting on November 7 in order to “launch the process of liberating the country from an incompetent government,” but it was decided to change this date due to local elections.
“We appealed to the political parties and movements of the country with a call to unite our efforts in the process of liberating the captured state and restoring democracy in the country. In this sense, I made a proposal to create a Committee for organizing the meeting, it was decided to hold the event after completion of the elections, the date will be agreed upon,” Chicu wrote.
According to him, many political forces are busy preparing for the second round of local elections, which is due to take place on November 19.
“We decided to expand the format of the platform so that representatives not only of political parties and movements participated, but also representatives of civil society, the academic environment, independent media, professional associations, government bodies, veterans' unions and all people in the country who stand for preserving democracy in Moldova,” added the ex-prime minister.
The opposition platform “Public Agenda” was created last fall to achieve a change of power in Moldova. It included eight political formations, but they did not hold mass events. In the spring, the Shor party resumed protests, calling on other political forces to join in defending the rights of citizens. In October, ex-president and leader of the Socialist Party Igor Dodon also called on opposition parties to unite to fight the “dictatorship and censorship” of the authorities.
