Mayor elections in Chisinau 3 -rd of June 2007

The Mayor elections left a negative character since the last time. There were three attempts of choosing a mayor, but with no luck. The main reason was that people were just ignoring the elections and the presence was less than 30 % in the first tour, and less than 20% in the following two.
I think this can be explained by the fact that people are not feeling confident for their government. There was no person for a candidate which could serve as a strong and sure personality. The candidates just couldn't receive the trust of the citizens.

Here are the results of the elections from the 10-th of July 2005, in Chisinau.

Greceanîi Zinaida Communist Party of RM 50,15%
Dumitru Braghis independent candidate
Chirtoaca Dorin Liveral Party
Susarenco Gheorghe Popular-Christian Party

the total number of participants in the elections was
156617 people from Chisinau, which represents less than 20 % of the population of this city.

This was a total fail for the mayor elections. But anyway there had to be a person who could serve as a mayor, even temporary. The person selected was Vasile Ursu, the representative of the communist party (seems to be logically the fact that he was choosen). He used to be the executive of duties of mayor for almost 2 years. Couple of months ago he was given the duty of the minister of transportation in the Republic of Moldova. His place was taken by Veaceslav Iordan (also the representative of the Communist Party).

Now the candidates for the new elections a getting ready for the new "fight". This will solve the problem, wether the communist will take the lead in the mayor's person, or will try to fight till the next parliamental elections. Will they get the one or the another one...
