Moldova coalition duo will thrive on common foe's fall

Thursday, June 20, 2019

Subject

Moldovan turbulence.

Significance

Moldova has survived a constitutional crisis with a solution that upholds the result of its February parliamentary ballot, rather than keeping the old guard in power and entering into a fresh electoral cycle. For the first time ever, both Moscow and EU have welcomed with the result.

Impacts

  • The presence of an elected government less subject to overt oligarchic influence offers potential to create a new kind of politics.
  • A more reformist government will make Moldova more attractive for foreign investors and improve the performance of its sovereign debt.
  • Moscow will see scope for expanding its influence and presence in Transnistria.
