PSRM AND ACUM CANDIDATES WILL REACH SECOND ROUND OF CHISINAU MAYOR ELECTION

Had local elections been held in Moldova next Sunday, candidate of the Party of Socialists (PSRM) Ion Ceban and Co-Chairman of the ACUM bloc Andrei Nastase would have reached the second round.

According to the opinion poll, presented at the Monday’s press conference by the Association of Sociologists and Demographers, 35.5% respondents are ready to vote for Ceban and 31.1% - for Nastase.

The poll was conducted before the deadline for registration of candidates, thus respondents were proposed to name their favorites by themselves. Thus, 2.1% are going to vote for Valeriu Munteanu of the “Union for Salvation of Bessarabia”, 1.9% – for former Acting Mayor of Chisinau Ruslan Codreanu, 1.4% – for Chisinau Ex-Mayor Dorin Chirtoaca. 15.2% did not responded to the question, while 8.75 said they will not go voting.

Over one-half (60%) of respondents negatively and very negatively assess the work of Chisinau Primaria over the last 4 years. Only less than 12% are positively assessing it.

The opinion poll was carried out within the project “Phenomenon of Social Solidarity in Moldova and Ukraine: Comparative Research” among 770 residents of Chisinau municipality on September 11 through 20.

…MOLDOVANS DIFFERENTLY ASSESS 100 DAYS OF PSRM-ACUM COALITION…

The Moldovan population has different points of view on assessing the first 100 days of work of the Party of Socialists (PSRM) and ACUM bloc coalition.

According to the poll results, presented on Monday, 5.9% respondents are very satisfied with the work of the coalition, 20.2% - are satisfied, 33.6% are neutral about it, 23.4% are discontent and 10.2% are very discontent. 6.7% did not respond to this question. Around 54% of citizens maintain that the socio-political situation in the country is calm, 25.7% - neutral, 15.8% - tensed.

Sociologist Andrei Dumbraveanu said that decisions taken by the Parliament and the Government give to the people hope for situation improvement, for stopping of street protests, pickets and other protest actions.

Only 5.2% citizens regard the conducted reforms very efficient, 39.3% – efficient, 41.6% – not very efficient, 10.5% – useless.

“Despite the persistent distrust in reforms, the results of opinion polls prove gradual reduction of skepticism”, he said.

According to the poll, 33.2% respondents maintain that for improvement of life in their locality, the administration has to develop social infrastructure, repair roads and improve the living spaces; 28.4% say it has to raise salaries and pensions, as well as to lower salaries on essential goods and tariffs; 25.1% – to abide by the legislation and imprison corrupt officials; 23.3% - to ensure cleanliness; 21.2% - develop local economy, attract investments and open jobs.

…BUT RULING PARTIES WILL PRESERVE MAJORITY IN CASE OF EARLY PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS

Had parliamentary elections been held in Moldova next Sunday, the following parties would get in the legislature on party slates: Party of Socialists (PSRM), the Party of Action and Solidarity, the “Demnitate si Adevar” Party and the Democratic Party.

According to the poll, presented at the Monday’s news conference at Infotag, 31.4% respondents are ready to vote for the PSRM, 16.5% - for the PAS, 7.3% - for the DA, 6.9% - for the DPM. Only 3.3% are ready to support the Our Party [OP, Partidul Nostru], 2.6% - the Moldovan Communist Party (MCP), 2.2% – the Ilan Shor Party. 26.9% respondents did not answer to the question or said they will not go voting.

Taking into account only the decided voters, the PSRM would get 42.9% votes, PAS – 22.6%, DA – 10%, DPM – 9.4%.

“The sharp falling of the Ilan Shor Party rating, which got 8.32% votes at parliamentary elections on February 24 on the nationwide list, is due to the fact that recently the parliamentary majority shouldered the responsibility for the one-billion-dollar bank fraud on representatives of this party”, said Victor Mocanu of the Association of Sociologists and Demographers, which conducted the poll.

Though over one-half of respondents said they will go voting for sure, while one-fourth more are prone to participation in the voting in case of parliamentary elections, the overwhelming majority of people are very negative about the idea of early elections in 2019.

Besides, 46.7% citizens maintain parliamentary elections should be held on the basis of the proportionate voting system, 20.6% – mixed system, 14.2% – uninominal voting system.

The pollsters are saying that error should not exceed ±3%.
