Social Democratic candidate Ion Ceban and his wife voted in another section. He urged citizens to actively participate in the polls.
"I voted for a beautiful, better-arranged, cleaner city for people of all ages, from the young to the mature. We come with good thoughts to have a better city to live. There are many things to change , but it is already on the electoral debate, not the voting day. The City Hall will be one of the most open institutions, "Ion Ceban said.
Another candidate for Chisinau Mayor came to vote with emotions.
