Moldovan Opposition Parties Form Coalition

Four pro-Western opposition parties in Moldova said on Saturday they had formed a coalition which would give them enough seats in parliament to form a government.

However, with 53 seats out of 101 in the assembly, the Liberal Democratic, Liberal, Democratic parties and the Our Moldova Alliance do not have enough votes to impose a replacement to incumbent Communist President Vladimir Voronin.

"There are 21 principles that unite us and on which basis we have reached a mutual understanding and agreement to create a ruling coalition in Moldova," the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, Vlad Filat, told journalists.
