On November 28, Moldova will hold parliamentary elections. For more than a year, the country has been governed by a pro-reform and pro-Western coalition, the Alliance for European Integration, but the Communist Party is still strong, polls showing its leading among the election contestants. In the wake of the 2009 election, political parties in parliament were unable to elect country’s president; thus the parliament was been dissolved, forcing new parliamentary elections. This discussion will focused on the election process, results, post-election coalitions in parliament, impact on internal reforms and Moldova’s foreign policy orientation, and civil society’s efforts to foster free and fair elections in one of Europe’s poorest countries.
