The Democratic Party came up with the proposal that diaspora to have their own Parliament Members. The initiative was announced today, March 6th, by the Democratic Party of Moldova leader, Vlad Plahotniuc, in a press briefing.
"We will introduce for the first time in Moldova the possibility for the diaspora to have their own MPs, people who come from the diaspora, who understand the problems and will help solve them. It is difficult to start a project in order to bring back the citizens from abroad, since they are not represented in Parliament. As a result of the uninominal voting system, the diaspora will have its deputies in the Moldovan Parliament" , said Vlad Plahotniuc.
