More and more Moldovan personalities support the idea of uninominal voting for the parliamentary poll. They say it will enable people to elect competent MPs to represent citizens’ interests.
Composer Eugen Doga says the uninominal voting should have been enacted a long time ago: "I think it’s good to know the people representing us in the Parliament. I don’t know the persons on the list of a party. I think the uninominal voting is the best solution, I’d be glad if it passed."
Valentina Osoianu, a folklore music singer, hopes the constituency voting will make the parliamentarians in solving the problems from their constituencies.
Conductor of Lăutarii folklore orchestra Nicolae Botgros: "In all the civilized western countries, this procedure is used to vote for people. Unfortunately, regardless of what one does in our country, there will be irregularities.”
A poll carried out by the company Intellect Group shows 80 % favor the direct election of law-makers. The uninominal vote is applied in developed countries such as the U.S.A. and the United Kingdom.
