Stratfor, about elections from RM: “A mandate obtained after a direct voting could offer to the president the possibility to be freer in decision-making process and to herald substantial changes”
Moldova on Oct. 30 will hold its first direct vote for the presidency in over two decades. For the past 20 years, Moldova’s presidents have been selected by lawmakers rather than the electorate, a process that has consistently led to deadlock in Chisinau’s fractious government. Moldova’s next president, no matter who it may be, will face considerable pushback from political adversaries, writes the American platform Stratfor.
In the article is mentioned that the results of the elections could have consequences that will be felt abroad as well. Such changes would become even more likely if Dodon wins the election. He and his fellow Socialists have long lobbied for closer ties with Russia. As Moldova’s president, he may be able to make strides to reverse the country’s integration with the European Union, also writes the Stratfor.
“Currently, Moldova’s president has less power than its prime minister because the position is filled by Parliament. Legally, those powers will not change for the office’s next occupant. But a direct public mandate could grant the presidency more sway in the legislature, potentially heralding substantial changes ahead in the country’s domestic and foreign policies”, is also presented in the article.
At the same time, the Stratfor Agency speaks about the political situation from the RM in the last years. “Since 2009, Moldova has been ruled by pro-Western coalitions that have grown weaker and more divided with each administration. The internal squabbling and ineffective governance has, in turn, led to disillusionment with pro-Western parties — and a surge in support for their pro-Russia rivals”, is said in the material.
