The Action and Solidarity Party considers that the electoral advertising on several TV stations of the candidate Igor Dodon is illegal and must be deleted from the show, Olesea Stamate announced in a press briefing.
Accordingly, it would be slanderous, defamatory, and would incite hatred.
"TV stations are obliged to stop broadcasting this ad, a contract is a contract, but this ad must be replaced. We will demand the right of reply. All broadcasters will be obliged to broadcast an ad of Maia Sandu, free of charge, offering the right of reply. (...) To be clear, we will sue those who broadcast and those who agreed to broadcast this ad", said Stamate.
In reply, the spokesperson of the independent candidate Igor Dodon, Ludmila Muntean, declared for PUBLIKA.MD that Maia Sandu must withdraw from the electoral race for these statements.
"This is a form of anti-democratic censorship promoted from now on by Maia Sandu. For her statements and for the censorship she abusively imposes, she would deserve to withdraw from the electoral campaign ", said Ludmila Muntean.
