Moldova Calls for Elections

CHISINAU, Moldova — Moldova’s acting president on Tuesday called a snap general election for Nov. 28, setting the scene for a fractious campaign between pro-Western rulers and opposition Communists.

Mihai Ghimpu, acting head of state and a leader in the four-party coalition that has run the country since last year, signed a decree in front of journalists dissolving parliament and setting the election date.

The election will be the latest attempt by the country to end a political impasse that has left Moldova without a full-time president since 2009 because Ghimpu’s alliance had insufficient support for a parliament vote to decide on the president. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
