The independent candidate, Valeriu Ghileţchi remains in the race for the presidency. The announcement was made at a press conference.
According to Ghiletchi, he is now determined to stay in the race and fight for votes. Otherwise,a part of voting electorate will remain without a voting option.
" I think there is a confusion among voters, due to the withdrawal of a candidate from the election. I need to explain myself: I fought constantly for the right of citizens to directly choose their president. I think the presidential election on October 30th should be seen as a unique opportunity to choose the president. I do not deny the right of parties to withdraw their candidatures, but it is extremely important to not create confusion among voters. During the entire electoral campaign, I chose to be honest and open. I tried to approach ideas and not attack any candidate in person. I remain pro, yet it is very important to not give up on family values. I will not retire from the race" , said Valeriu Ghileţchi.
