A long-term agreement between ACUM and PSRM would disappoint supporters, opinion

Signing a long-term agreement that would envisage further collaboration between the ACUM bloc and the Socialist Party in order to stay in power would disappointment the supporters of both political forces that are part of the coalition. Instead of signing an agreement, the component parties of the ruling coalition should work to bring about results. These opinions were expressed by journalists Dorin Scobioală and Elena Pahomova on TVC21’s program "Glavnoe".

"It is more logical for the two forces not to sign such an agreement, but to try to maintain the ruling coalition for another year, year and a half. Then have early elections. In the current situation, the signing of a long-term agreement will be a disappointment for both parties’ supporters”, Dorin Scobioală says.

According to journalist Elena Pahomova, the agreement that took place in June, when the three parties decided to work together to dismantle the former regime, already means a sort of agreement. In her opinion, signing a long-term agreement means a waste of time and energy. "The only thing that can save this tandem is work. They must work and provide results. All we need and have asked for are normal living conditions, so that people do not leave the country,” the journalist says.

Recently, President Igor Dodon announced that a political agreement could be signed between the PSRM and ACUM bloc this week, if parties completed the talks on reforms. The head of state announced that the agreement would have several components: regarding the domestic policy, reforms in the field of justice and the prosecution system, the activity of the parliamentary parties. By this agreement the parties would not accept party switching and the creation of coalitions with deputies from other groups. The document is said to contain more details about the general local elections of October 20.
