Chisinau –APA. The Communist Party of Moldova named Prime Minister Zinaida Greceanii as their candidate for the presidency. Greceanii has led the government since March 2008. The president of Moldova is elected by the parliament. The Communists won 60 of 101 seats in last month’s election but remain one seat short of the 61 needed to elect a president. Liberal-Democratic, Liberal and Our Moldova parties won other seats, but they claimed that the results of the elections were falsified. The opposition threatened to boycott the presidential elections. The communists expected to try to win the votes of several opposition members to gain enough votes, analysts said. The voting in the parliament for the presidential elections will be held on May 20. Outgoing President Vladimir Voronin was elected parliament speaker.
