Tug of war in Moldova? Dynamics within and outside Moldovan leadership
Moldova’s current leadership celebrated its 100th day in power in September. This milestone is symbolic since both the parliament and the government are moving forward with their main priorities: reforming the justice sector, consolidating state institutions, resuming financial and political assistance from or cooperation with foreign partners, and delegitimizing the predecessors. This is also time marked by dissensions: slightly differing political and economic agendas, messages behind officials’ foreign visits, resignations from one of the coalition parties, as well as rivalry stirred in the anticipation of the local elections. The agreement between the ACUM bloc and the Socialist Party (PSRM) has been extended, but disagreements arise from both the inside and outside of the majority.
