Moldova: Aleas jacta est!
Even though it is still winter outside, the degree of political heat in the Republic of Moldova is getting higher and higher. On January 25 Moldova saw the start of the race for parliamentary elections set for February 24, 2019. Opponents started their campaigns with grand promises. Romania’s Presidency in the Council of the European Union provides a chance for Moldova to set its European dialogue in motion as a result of close relations with its “trans-fluvial brother”. And at the end of the month the unrecognized Transnistrian government surprised Chisinau with launching their very own “diplomatic office” in Moscow.
