Moldova elections give pro-EU party reins to form government

Moscow, Jul 12 (EFE).- The head of the Moldovan pro-Europe Party of Action and Solidarity Igor Grosu on Monday promised to form a “professional and effective” government “as soon as possible” after his party won snap parliamentary elections.

With 99.95% of votes from Sunday’s election counted, PAS (52.74%) won with a large margin over its nearest contenders, the pro-Russian coalition of communists and socialists led by Vladimir Voronin and Igor Dodon, which garnered 27.22% support.

The populist group Shor received 5.75% of the votes.

PAS, the party of Moldovan President Maia Sandu, has already secured the majority of seats needed in Parliament to form a government.

“We promise not to stop listening to you, we call on competent people to participate,” said Grosu to a press conference, after knowing the results. “We will work to make sure no one lives in poverty.” EFE
