Moldova. FALSIFICATION of presidential elections
BSSB.BE jurnal.md/en/ 19.07.2016
The party “Demnitate şi Adevăr” (Dignity and Truth – n.red) is asking the OSCE Moldova to take measures in order to prevent the falsification of the presidential elections this fall.
The PPDA leader, Andrei Năstase, along with other representatives of the party, has met with the representatives of the international organizations and warned OSCE about the Government plans to fraud the elections.
According to DA Platform, the latest local and parliamentary elections have revealed extremely worrying issues referring to the Moldovan electoral system.
- “We can’t say these are some separate minor cases, which won’t affect the elections’ result, but on the contrary, it is a well-organized system in order to massively defraud the elections on a large-scale.
- We address your excellencies as representatives of OSCE to make every effort and action to stop the massive falsification of the next Moldovan elections by the Plahotniuc criminal regime”, said the representatives of DA Platform.
They reviewed several illegal actions of the government, including through the state institutions that have been politically shared since 2009.
According to PPDA, the Democratic Party and the oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc is benefiting from a monopolized audiovisual at a rate of 85%, ie 10 declared broadcasters and other media institutions, including electronic, through which they are exterminating the political opponents, especially the party “Demnitate şi Adevăr”. This way, PD is defrauding the elections before they even started, as it happened in 2014 when they broadcasted for days live concerts of top Russian artists, said DA Platform leaders.
Also, they defraud the elections by manipulating the opinion polls. “The last poll organized by a Fund of public opinion nonexistent on the profile market, held by the oligarch Plahotniuc, demonstrates, once again, that PD wants to get rid of the Platform “Demnitate şi Adevăr” at any cost, recognized by all viable polls as the first pro-European and democratic force in the country”, said PPDA representatives.
“The data of the State Enterprise Registru, politically controlled by PD, are falsified. If at the elections in 2005 there were recorded 2,5 million voters, their number increased to 2,9 million people in 2014, given that daily more than a hundred citizens are emigrating from Moldova”, continued the DA Platform leaders.
Also, the party informed the OSCE Mission about other dirty measures used by the power parties, especially PD and PL, during the pre-election and election period.
We mention that the former deputy chairman of the Central Electoral Commission, Ştefan Urâtu, has revealed that the parliamentary elections in 2014 were defrauded at a 15% rate while the local ones in 2015 – between 5 and 20%, depending on the locality. After these statements, and after Ştefan Urâtu has joined the protests in the Great National Assembly Square and said that the Republic of Moldova is controlled by an oligarchic octopus, he has been removed from the post of deputy chairman of CEC.
