MOST CITIZENS REGARD DP AS RESPONSIBLE FOR POLITICAL CRISIS IN MOLDOVA

An impressive majority of Moldova citizens, namely 73.7%, shoulder responsibility for the political crisis in Moldova on the Democratic Party and primarily on its leader Vlad Plahotniuc, as per the opinion poll findings presented by the Association of Sociologists and Demographers of Moldova at a news conference in Infotag on Monday.

According to Association Chairman Victor Mocanu, the research was carried out on June 11 through 22, so it partly covered a period of uncertainty in the country.

According to the poll findings, 11% respondents blamed the Constitutional Court as the main responsible for the crisis, 6% -- corruption at all levels in Moldova, 5.8% -- oligarchs, 5.1.% -- the entire political class, 4.9% -- persons involved into the scandalous one-billion-dollar bank fraud, 4.4% -- the Moldovan judiciary system and bad legislation. And 3.4% claimed that the entire society was responsible for the crisis.

Democratic Party representatives top the anti-rating of trust by the population. Vlad Plahotniuc is distrusted by 82.4% respondents, Ilan Shor - by 75.9%, ex-premier Pavel Filip by 74,8%, Our Party leader Renato Usatii - by 72.3%, Communist Party Chairman Vladimir Voronin - by 69.8%,

At the bottom of the anti-rating there stand Parliament Speaker Zinaida Greceanii - with 56.7% respondents who distrust her, Minister of the Interior Andrei Nastase 56.6%, Prime Minister Maya Sandu - 53%, Liberal Party Chairman Dorin Chirtoaca - 50.5%, and President Igor Dodon - 41.6%.

Only 41.4% interviewed citizens called the current socio-political situation in Moldova as calm, 15.2% said the situation is neither calm nor strained, and 29.6% called the situation sharp.

Nearly 36% respondents believe that events similar to the April 2009 post-election disturbances may repeat in Moldova soon, and 42.4% interviewed citizens have an opposite opinion.

The opinion poll was carried out on the Association's own initiative on June 11-22, covering 1,191 citizens eligible to vote residing in 87 various-type populated areas across the republic, except the Transnistrian region. The pollsters are saying the error should not be in the excess of В±3%.


MOST OF MOLDOVANS STAND AGAINST EARLY PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS - POLL

An overwhelming majority of the Moldovan population (85.4%) is standing against an early parliamentary election, and only 7.2% don't mind this, as per the opinion poll findings presented by the Association of Sociologists and Demographers of Moldova at a news conference in Infotag on Monday.

Association Chairman Victor Mocanu explained that citizens are tired of frequent elections and need a pause in political campaigning.

71.5% respondents are positive about the formation of the "provisional technical coalition" of the Party of Socialists (PSRM) and the two parties forming the political bloc ACUM - Maia Sandu's Party of Action and Solidarity (PAS) and Andrei Nastase's DA Platform.

According to the poll findings, 54.8% respondents stated they were "absolutely sure" about their going to the polls. Mocanu says this is a very low indicator, given that people, when answering sociologists' questions, want to look more responsible.

If parliamentary elections were held in Moldova next Sunday, the Party of Socialists would receive 30.7% ballots, the ACUM bloc - 23.4%, the Democratic Party - 5.2%, the Ilan Shor Party - 3.4%, the Communist Party - 2.3%, Our Party - 1.6%, the Liberal Party - 0.7%. 22.5% respondents were uncertain, and 8.9% stated they would not go to the polls.

If to take only 'certain' respondents into account, the PSRM would poll 44.7%, ACUM - 34.1%, the Democratic Party - 7.6%, and the rest parties would not clear the 6% election barrier.

The rating of trust in Moldovan politicians by using the so-called "closed list", i.e. when respondents are offered a list of names to choose from, is traditionally headed by President Igor Dodon, who is trusted by 53.7% citizens. Following next is Prime Minister Maya Sandu - with 35.6%, then Minister of the Interior Andrei Nastase - 31.4%, Parliament Speaker Zinaida Greceanii - 27.5%, Gagauzia Governor Irina Vlah - 16.2%, Communist Party leader Vladimir Voronin - 10.5%, Our Party leader Renato Usatii - 9.1%, Liberal Party Chairman Dorin Chirtoaca - 8.7%, Ilan Shor Party leader - 8.4%, ex-Chairman [until today] of the former ruling Democratic Party Vlad Plahotniuc - 7.1%, ex-premier Pavel Filip - 6.2%.

But the rating of trust in politicians appears to be noticeably lower if respondents are asked to tell by themselves the politicians they trust - according to the so-called "open list". Thus, President Igor Dodon is trusted by 24.5% respondents, Maia Sandu - by 15.5%, Andrei Nastase - 13.6%, Zinaida Greceanii - 5.1%, Irina Vlah - 4.1%, incumbent Deputy Speaker of Parliament Ion Ceban - 3.9%, Vladimir Voronin - 2.7%, Renato Usatii - 2.6%, Dorin Chirtoaca - 1.4%, Ilan Shor - 1.3%, Vlad Plahotniuc and Pavel Filip - 0.9% each. 12.8% stated they trust in nobody, and 9.6% failed to answer anything definite. The opinion poll was carried out on the Association's own initiative on June 11-22, covering 1,191 citizens eligible to vote residing in 87 various-type populated areas across the republic, except the Transnistrian region. The pollsters are saying the error should not be in the excess of В±3%.
