Alleged irregularities in printing electoral posters
The Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova (PCRM) has released a statement explaining party’s decision not to take part in electoral debates held in the current local election campaign by tv and radio stations. Among the arguments are to be mentioned:
“debates are a great possibility to make them known for the new participants at the electoral race, who are not known to voters, and who did not managed to gain authority by the means of other methods;
PCRM has chosen the tactics to promote its candidates among the most known and well respected persons, those names and actions are quite familiar to voters in all living places. These people do not need presentations;
PCRM relies in the current electoral competition on the traditional methods to persuade voters, which are based on a permanent practical work with people in their living places, on discussing particular problems with them”.
The party considers that the direct responsibility towards people is more important than the TV shows, and it is trusted more by the electorate.
Sergiu Meriacre, director of the “Grafic Design” private printing house, has been arrested by employees of the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MIA) for alleged irregularities in printing electoral posters. According to the MIA, in the mentioned printing house 1600 electoral posters for the Liberal Party (LP) have been found out, without financial documents, a contract providing for the printing services delivery, and other financial documents needed for such an activity.
