The People's Republican Party supports the electoral reform by implementing mixed electoral system for the parliamentary elections. The political party leaders declared that it will make the elected officials accountable and will contribute to the development of settlements. The electoral platforms of 13 political parties contain the transition to the mixed electoral system: based on party lists and uninominal vote. Among them are LDPM and SPRM, political parties that ignored its introduction but promised this in their political programs.
In 2008 LDPM initiated a republican referendum on amending the Constitution, inclusively changing the electoral system to mixed. As a matter of fact the plebiscite never took place because the party decided to give up claiming they have been intimidated by the communist government. The mixed electoral system was introduced in the party's political program adopted at the congress in December 2011.
LDPM declared that Moldova needs an accountable political class and this can be achieved by introducing a mixed electoral system. This way a direct connection will be established with the electorate - by uninominal vote and thus the principle of proportional representation will be respected, inclusively of the minorities by voting on the list.
The voting system was changed in 2013 by the Parliament and the mixed system was to be applied in 2014. PDM initiative was supported by the LDPM.
"Quite often, our citizens voting on a list do not know who represents them even if we, the MPs represent all citizens of the Republic of Moldova. LDPM will support this law draft, because it was also an objective of the LDPM," said Tudor Deliu, MP of LDPM.
In less than a month LDPM and CP have repealed the law.
A year ago, the members of Dignity and Truth Platform, behind which stand the criminals Topa, took to the streets and demanded the parliamentary uninominal vote, but now opposes it.
PSRM political program from 2014 included the goal to change the electoral law. Socialists pledged that 50 percent of MP's to be elected in uninominal constituencies.
Analysts are wondering if these parties lied when seeking to change the electoral system.
