Macro-financial assistance package of 100 million euros provided to Moldova is not conditional. This was stipulated in agreement between The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and European Union. Moreover, MEPs did not request the withdrawal of project regarding the electoral system modification.
Roman Chircă – director of Institution for Market Economics declared the fact that European Commission did not put forward any conditions means the agreement would be rallied to some mechanism and policies given by IMF and World Bank as well as other financial institutions involved in the grant memorandum. “The correlation between this grant instrument and the uninominal vote is quite confused and possibly fatal error” he added.
“Moldova is not an EU member, thus, you cannot request what you want like its member. As we should perceive, the authorities must make action more than this”, added Victor Juc, vice-director of the Institute for Legal Research.
"This program is rather to ensure the continuity of the general reforms and to ensure a financial balance, following the agreements with the International Monetary Fund. Under the conditions of the Republic of Moldova, this macro-financial support was additionally conditioned by certain criteria related to the rule of law and so far, "concluded Sergiu Ostaf, director of CReDO.
