For and against early elections. Info-Prim Neo analysis

The day of May 20, when the new head of state is to be elected, can become crucial for Moldova.

Which of the two scenarios would be better for Moldova and the people? What will be the consequences of early elections if a third scenario -“ conciliation on the basis of dialogue -“ seems the least probable at the moment?

Moldovan electorate is more intelligent than it seems

The latest opinion polls show that over 50% of the population considers that things in Moldova go in the wrong direction. More than 70% of the population says that they do not have a decent living. At the same time, a large part of the voters (about 40%) seems ready to support in the coming elections the party that has governed the country during eight years. This contradiction made many people speak about the lack of political education in Moldovan voters. But analysts deny this paradoxical theory and say in unison: the Moldovan electorate is more intelligent than it seems. It is intelligent even without the information that the political class should provide so that they could prepare for elections.
