The Moldovan Communist Party will become the new opposition if it fails to form a coalition, Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin declared, quoted by Unimedia. Voronin underlined in an official press release that his party aims at consolidating the rule of law, inter ethnic peace and national sovereignty when seeking a governing partner.

Voronin declared that so far the Communist Party failed to attract any interest from other local parties. Moldovan political analysts warn that political decisions at the moment might affect the very future of the country.

The Communist Party in Moldova obtained a final score of 44.69% in the Parliamentary elections on July 31 which equals 48 mandates, insufficient to gain a majority in the Parliament. Opposition parties are attempting to form their own alliances but it seems that neither the Communists nor the other parties have enough mandates to designate the new president.
