Moldovans are on political barricades, poll

A new poll presented by the Public Opinion Fund shows the Moldovans are yet on political barricades, with the Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova (PSRM) and the Party “Action and Solidarity” (PAS) being the leading supported political forces. If parliamentary elections were held next Sunday, the PSRM would poll 48.4% of the vote, while the PAS 25%. The Party “Platform Dignity and Troth” would gain 5% of the poll, while the Democratic Party 3.9%. The poll was presented in a news conference at IPN on March 23.

Public Opinion Fund director Andrei Lukian said the number of citizens who are fully dissatisfied with the situation in the country continues to be high, even if it decreased from 72% in 2016 to 56% at present. The readiness to take part in demonstrations and protests also diminished.

Some 47% of those polled consider that Moldova needs a President with bigger powers, while 29% believe that the power in Moldova should be divided clearer. The level of confidence in the President of the Republic of Moldova is bigger than in the Government or Parliament. 56% of the respondents have a lot and particular confidence in the President, 32% in the Government, while 28% in Parliament.

Andrei Lukian said promises were made in the election camping and the expectations of the Head of State are big, but the level of confidence in this regard could be assessed in a year only. The people mix up the President’s powers with the powers of other authorities and expect of the President things that this cannot do.

The poll also contains an anti-rating of politicians. Liberal leader Mihai Ghimpu is distrusted most by 71% of the respondents, while Democratic leader Vlad Plahotniuc by 70% of those surveyed.

As regards the country’s foreign policy, 40% would vote for entry into the European Union in an eventual referendum, while 49% for entry in the Customs Union. Also, 22% of those polled would vote for Moldova’s union with Romania, while 64% would vote against such a union.

The sociopolitical survey was commissioned by the newspaper “Timpul” (“Time”). The poll was carried out during March 10-19 and covered a representative sample of 1,817 people. It has a margin of sampling error of plus-minus 2.3%.
