For the last months, the mass-media was filled with all sort of news. It seems like the battle of the candidates for mayor is a very important one, it involves many political parties and interests. And they try to do the best, sometimes even illegal things in order to compromise the other candidates. The following text represents sequences which I found on this topic.

The independent candidates from the Municipal Council of Chisinau, consider that their rights for the performing of the electory campaign are being violated. For exemple there are too little places for publishing the advertisments. Also the procedure of organising meetings with the population is very complicated. You have to waite for a positive answer. The number of candidates is big, so this creates a complicated situation.

Director SRL TVR-Extern Yuri Timofte said that the "public media- Moldova - 1 and Radio-Moldova ignore independent candidates, and don't invite them to the electoral debate."

Another conflict appeared on te 31 of may. INFOTAG says that they have received a shoking news. The Agency received a message by e-mail on the letterhead of a color logo Liberal Party, email-chirtoaca.dorin @ yahoo.com. But later, Dorin Chirtoaca denied this fact, saying that it is a lie.

MoldovaNoastră Alliance (AMN) believes that the authorities are preparing a massive falsification of ballots from the guest that on the day of local elections on June 3 will be located outside the country.
INFOTAG: AMN are informed by the foreign observers that the " communist agents are gethering on the border databases on Moldovan citizens abroad. " "We are warning the observers of dangers of the data through the use of scanned original signature of the Ministry of Information Development for vote fraud and misappropriation of Communists at least 600 thousand votes citizens abroad," notes the treatment of AMN.
600 thousands of votes represent about 25 % of the total number of the votes.

The Coalition-2007 had discovered facts of intervention of priests in the process pre company. Church officials from Causheni and Drasliceni were agitating for certain candidates. "In the village Drasliceni they been campaigning in favour of a candidate from the Party of Communists and against candidates from the Liberal and Democratic parties, and suggested Causeni vote for the current leadership area," said Strutescu.

"The Party of Communists launched in the village Kotyala from Briceni district, a candidate for mayor, but the district did not agree with this candidate, and nominated its own. The first candidate found himself offended and killed himself "said Strutescu.

"Third report on the monitoring of the May 17-27 record increase in the number of news to the PCRM, aired by" Moldova - 1, NIT, radio Moldova and Antena C. There are growing electoral measures and actions by the authorities, "said Negru. He noted that for the previous period, and the statements of the opposition parties were not covered by those television and radio stations, while Vocea Basarabiei, Rro TV and TV 7 provide equal time to opposition groups.
