Moldova: Presidential election fail

Moldova’s parliament has failed to elect a new president – so the result is the increasing of the possibility that the country will have to hold a new general election.


The Communists needed 61 votes in the 101-seat parliament to elect their candidate Zinaida Greceanii – the problem is that they have only 60 seats in the parliament.Voronin, president since 2001, cannot seek a third term in office; but he has secured the position of parliament speaker, a job he hopes will enable him to maintain control of Europe’s poorest country.

Zinaida Greceanii is seen as a loyalist easily controlled by Voronin. A second Communist candidate – Stanislav Groppa, entered to make the contest look more competitive, won no votes.
In her address to deputies, Greceanii vowed to uphold the sovereignty and neutral status of the former Soviet republic. She also pledged to promote Moldova’s integration with Europe and intensify efforts to solve an 18-year-old “frozen conflict” with separatists in the Russian-speaking Transdniester region.
“I will direct all my strength to enhancing Moldova’s statehood,” she told the session.
“A solution to Transdniester is absolutely necessary for the existence of our state. We need to resume negotiations on Transdniester in an internationally recognized format.”

If a second vote on 28 May also fails, parliament will have to be dissolved. Opposition parties have vowed to maintain their boycott, forcing dissolution and a new general election. The result of the last parliamentary election, in April, gave the Communists 60 seats – one short of the three-fifths majority needed to elect a president.

Although international observers said the election was generally fair, many young people felt the result was stolen, and thronged the capital, Chisinau, on 7 April, attacking the parliament building.President Vladimir Voronin and his government accused neighbouring Romania of stoking the violence, causing an angry row between the countries.

Mr Voronin has to step down after the maximum two terms in office. But he has been elected speaker of parliament – a move analysts say could enable him to retain his hold on power.

Background

April’s general election opened up deep divisions between Moldovans.

Many older people were content to keep the Russian-backed Communists in power, while the younger generation generally backed the centre-right opposition parties, who are keen to move closer to the EU and improve ties with Romania.  Mr Voronin’s successor will lead the poorest country in Europe, where the average wage is just under $250 (£168) a month, and will inherit an unresolved conflict over the breakaway region of Trans-Dniester.

Protests in Moldova Explode, With Help of Twitter, April 7, 2009

Europe’s Next Revolution? April 8, 2009

The demonstrations in the Moldovan capital of Chisinau after last Sunday’s elections are not like Ukraine’s “Orange Revolution” in 2004. Most obviously, they have been far from peaceful. Nor have they been provoked by incontrovertible evidence of massive voting fraud. The demonstrators just don’t like the governing party: Moldova is the only European country where a nominally “Communist” party has won largely free and fair elections, in 2001 and 2005.

An instable situation in Republic of Moldova

The Twitter Revolution in Moldova

On Sunday, April 5th, the governing Communist party won  50% of the vote in Parliamentary elections. This was decidedly a surprise, as Communists had lost the last round of municipal elections, and as an organized anti-Communist movement had been warning that elections might be rigged.

Termocom a finalizat anul 2008 cu pierderi de 138 mil. lei

Termocom a finalizat anul 2008 cu pierderi de 138 mil. lei
potrivit ziarului ECO

Până la finele sezonului de încălzire pierderile ar putea creşte cu încă 160-170 mil. lei

Din cauza neajustării tarifelor la energia termică de către Consiliul Municipal Chişinău, zilnic, furnizorul de căldură SA Termocom înregistrează pierderi de până la 4 mil. lei. Potrivit lui Dionisie Antocel, administratorul SA Termocom, actualul tarif nu acoperă cheltuielile întreprinderii, iar de la ultima majorare a tarifului la căldură, în ianuarie 2007 – de la 233 la 540 de lei – preţul la gaze, apă şi energie electrică a crescut cel puţin în trei etape.

Termocom insistă ca tariful la căldură să fie majorat până la cota de 820 lei/Gcal.
Numai în anul 2008 pierderile societăţii de la neajustarea tarifelor la căldură au constituit 138 mil. lei, iar până la finalul sezonului de încălzire 2008-2009, acestea ar mai putea creşte cu încă 160-170 mil. lei.
Dionisie Antocel, a declarat că atât aceste prejudicii, cât şi altele mai vechi din anul 2006, în valoare de 104 mil. lei, vor fi înaintate spre recuperare de la administraţia Primăriei Chişinău. În total ar fi vorba de o sumă de 400 mil. lei.

„Am câştigat până acum toate procesele intentate Primăriei şi le vom câştiga şi pe acestea. Primăria, dacă n-o să achite, vom purcede la sechestrarea clădirilor, a imobilelor, inclusiv a sediului central şi le o vom scoate la licitaţie, a afirmat Dionisie Antocel, care a ţinut să menţioneze că tariful corect ar trebui să fie de 816-820 lei/Gcal, cifre care ar fi confirmate atât de experţii de la Banca Mondială, cât şi de Agenţia Naţională pentru Reglementare în Energetică.”

Anul trecut părerile pe marginea tarifului la căldură au fost împărţite. SWECO, o companie de audit suedeză, a efectuat un studiu la comanda Băncii Mondiale în care a constatat că tariful real la căldura ar urma să fie de 817 lei pentru o gigacalorie, sumă ce nu ar include datoriile furnizorului. Experţii de la IDIS Viitorul au efectuat un calcul de alternativă susţinând că preţul la căldură trebuie să fie de 650 de lei. În baza unui Memorandum semnat dintre CMC, Termocom şi Moldovagaz, tariful la căldura urma sa fie ajustat pana la 21 noiembrie la 740 de lei/Gcal, lucru care aşa şi nu a mai fost făcut. Directorul Termocom a mai specificat că în cazul în care consumatorii nu vor achita facturile, furnizorul va sista livrarea căldurii şi a apei calde în oraş.

No meeting Voronin / Smirnov on 17th December

PMR - Transnistria, Smirnov

PMR - Transnistria,

All received positive signals from Tiraspol,  meetings with Voronin/ Smirnov, some declarations of Russian politicians,  everything seemed to illuminate on  the conflict in Transnistria.

But,  it seems thats all the things stopped here,  a news from DECA-press say that Tiraspol reacted negatively to the proposal of Chisinau about a possible meeting on December 17th between the Moldovan president, Vladimir Voronin, and the leader from Tiraspol, Igor Smirnov.

What is the reason of that?
