Moldova to form minority coalition government

Baku-APA. Moldova's Liberal Democrats and Democrats on Friday signed an agreement to form a minority coalition government, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

The two parties made the move after more than 50 days of negotiations among three pro-European parties, as they could not reach agreement on formation of a three-party coalition with the Liberal Party.

Chairman of the Democratic Party Marian Lupu thanked his political partner for accepting his proposal to set up a minority government and apologized to the citizens for the fact that these negotiations had lasted for so long a time.

The two parties have together only 42 seats in the 101-seat parliament, while the new cabinet needs 51 votes to pass the vote of confidence in the parliament.

Yet, the two parties had been negotiating with the Party of Communists and the minority government will probably get the latter's support in the parliament. The Communists were allotted 21 seats in the parliament after the general elections on Nov. 30.
