Moldova at Crossroads

2020 has sorely challenged Moldovan citizens with the ongoing pandemic pushing the society to adapt to the upcoming tendencies. The 2020 being an electoral year provided certain optimism for Moldova and its foreign partners with the newly elected president Maia Sandu who stands for the European development vector. Beyond the international sympathy and support addressed toward Sandu, there is a lot to do so as to bring Moldova back to the rule of law,recover trust of its strategic partners, and most importantly to come up with a pandemic recovery plan as soon as possible to avoid financial collapse. Since there is no majority support in the present Parliament for President Sandu and her ambitious agenda, snap parliamentary elections in 2021 seem to be the only solution as the pandemic recovery path looks to be long-term and difficult.
