Octavian Ţîcu, candidate of the National Unity Party (PUN), has given up on the municipal councillor mandate won on Sunday, October 20, and will continue to be MP. His place in the CMC will be taken by Corneliu Pântea, who is next on the list.
Octavian Ţîcu also said that he would make every effort to prevent Ion Ceban and the Socialist Party from acceding to the Chisinau City Hall. He has mentioned that he will support Andrei Năstase, the candidate of ACUM bloc, in the second round of elections for the mayor position, if the latter undertakes to set up a pro-Romanian alliance for Chisinau and not to cooperate with the PSRM.
PUN Executive Chairman Anatol Salaru proposed Octavian Ţîcu to apply for party chairman position. The date of the PUN congress will be announced after the second round of elections.
